"Eye cup for D7100"


Monroe, US
          

I am thinking of buying a new eye cup piece to replace the one on the camera. I have a habit of putting my face tight to the viewfinder and find that I have pressed buttons on the back of the camera with my check. I thought this would stop that keeping my check further away from the back of the camera. Which one would work.

I use the Hoodman H-EYEN22S on my D7000 and D600. Only downside is that it blocks a small portion of the LCD. Here's a link:

Francine,

Great minds think alike? I almost posted the very same question a couple of days ago, but instead I did a bit of internet research...

I almost went for the Hoodman, but I read about some problems with full viewfinder visibility and seeing the top of the LCD behind the big, oval eyecup.

Instead, I went for a solution that I think I first saw somewhere here on Nikonians a while ago. It involves 3 Nikon accessory parts:
•Nikon DK-22 eyepiece adapter for rectangular viewfinder mounts (D7100, D7000, D90 and many others)
•Nikon eyepiece for FM, FE &FA series (round eyepiece element that screws into back of adapter)
•Nikon DK-3 rubber eyecup (to fit on FM/FE/FA eyepiece)

The total cost is about $35 plus tax (if applicable) and shipping -- a bit more expensive than the Hoodman.

So far only the eyecup (from Adorama via Amazon) has arrived, but the other two pieces are on the way from B&H (eyecup was backordered there).

I'll let you know how it works....

Dave

Francine,
I use the Hoodman that Jim spoke of but I used some scissors to trim the bottom a little so I could see the full LCD screen. I think it works great.

Hi, Francine--

All the pieces arrived on Saturday. I put the contraption together and shot with it a bit over the weekend. I think it is an improvement over the original flat eyepiece -- as a left-eye shooter who uses back-button focusing, I really appreciate the extra bit of distance between my thumb and my nose when focusing!

I took some quick iPhone pics for you. The first one shows the new eyepiece on the camera; the second is an attempt to show the extent to which it obscures the top of the LCD; the third shows the three pieces involved (from left to right, DK-22 adapter, FM/FE/FA eyepiece, and DK-3 rubber cup).

Dave

Vote 1 for dk-3 eye cup. I brought both the hoodman and dk-3.
Hoodman partially blocks lcd and very hard to get full view through view finder. Dk-3 is a round eye cup and works brilliantly.
