"Can I use a round rubber eye cup?"


Morristown, US
          

I use a round rubber eyecup on my D300s and would like to do the same with the d7100. What parts do I need to accomplish this? With the d300s I use the following kit: Nikon DK-3 eye cup; (2) Nikon FM2 eye piece; and (3) Nikon DK-22 adapter.

That kit should work on your D7100. I have used a round eyecup on my D7000 with the DK-22.

I use the HoodEye with adapter.
At first I did not like the egg shaped cup,
untill I learned you can spin it for use with your left eye.

I opted for the round rather than egg-shaped eyecup for shooting vertically. How do you manage that with the egg-shaped version?

The cup rotates. Just spin it with your fingers.

I too use the Hoodman egg shaped cup, and don't usually do anything when shooting vertically. Since it
'S soft rubber, the long part just seems to smooth fairly smoothly into my cheek or eyebrow (depending on which way I hold the camera).
Take care,

I was about to order the Hoodman egg-shaped eye cup. However, two prevalent themes gave me pause:

1) Very difficult to remove once it's on
2) Causes vignetting in the viewfinder window because of the additional distance your eye is away from the camera

Have you experienced these issues? Were they a problem for you?

1. Have not wanted to remove it.
2. Depends on how hard you press the eyecup.
I am not having a problem with it on the D7100.
I use the viewfinder with my left eye.

This HoodMan EyeCup comes as a unit. It includes a square adapter.

I very much like these. Have one on each camera. It does click in palce and takes a small amount of effort to remove it and keeps it from falling off. But why remove it?

Vignetting is only a probelm for me if I keep my eye a little ways back from the eyecup - but then that defeats the purpose of blocking more light.

And rotating the eyecup is a little tight but moveable.

BTW - I have the one for rectangler viewfinder for the D7100.

Will work perfectly that is the same setup I used on my D200 and now on my D600!
