"Eye Cup"


Redmond, US
          

I was finding stray light bothering me in very bright sunlight when looking thru the viewfinder so bought a Hoodman N22S. Fitting this is a challenge because it is such a tight fit but removing it was even worse! In fact to remove it I had to fashion 2 plastic levers to get it off.

I was removing it because whist it did work blocking out the sun it also blocks out about 30% of the rear screen. Access to the menu's when you cannot see which menu rendered it unsuitable for me so I wondered, have others experienced the same issue or is there a better solution than the Hoodman.
Grateful for any pointers.
Tom

I can't speak about the Hoodman specifically, but I did try a similar eye cup on my D7000 some time ago. I thought it would help since I wear glasses but also found the overlap of the LCD screen annoying. I know you can find different eye cup sizes...one of the smaller round ones might not cover as much of the screen.

I tried the hoodman myself.
Had the same problem, it covers up to much of the lcd.
I now use a nikon dk-3 eye cup with adapter. this is a round
eye cup that works really well on the d7000. It does cover up
the lcd slightly but have no problems with viewing the lcd.
B & H have the eyecup for $9.95.

You need all 3 pieces to make this work on d7000.

Jeff can you show us a photo of your eyecup installed on your D7000 - so that I can see how it overlap on the LCD SCREEN.

I was going to buy Nikons version and the Photo Shop (a high end one) warned me that they are almost impossible to get off.

I purchased the Hoodman for glasses and find it works fine for me. It does (did) cover the screen, so I went at it with my trusty scissors. I trimmed the bottom with a nice curve almost even with the top of the screen. It still does it's job blocking the stray light and saves my glasses from scratches. It is very snug so I just sat down with it and put it on and took it off over and over until it loosened up. It still snaps on tight but it comes off with one hand now.
