Just found out that I need to buy a DR-6. Thanks. I have a Nikon DR-4 right angle finder that I used on my F100 and was wondering if I could use it on my D200? Is there an adaptor that would allow me to do this (if so, where can I get one?), or do I have to purchase a DR-6 to fit the D200? Thanks! bigbear1
Phil, Thanks for responding. I checked out the DK-22 adaptor and Nikon doesn't recommend using it with the DR-4, as the weight is too heavy for the DK-22. Have you used it yourself and would you recommend it? Of course, I'd prefer to save money if possible. Thanks. John bigbear1
I have bought a DR-5 and use it with an eyepiece adapter, DK-22, and it works to perfection. I cannot imagine why the DR-4 would not work. In any case, you have a cheap fuse that may break from time to time, and that is why they recommend to buy more than one DK-22.
I shoot with a D200 and a DR-4 all the time. The slim plastic spring ears on the DK-22 do have a habit of breaking, so get a couple for back-ups. That being said, I am still using my original one. If a mishap occurs, I would much rather have the DK-22 being the weakest link instead of the bodies eye piece flange.
Hello Derek I have used my DR3 R angle finder with F80, D70, and now D200 with the appropriate adaptor. The only problem is a little cut off in the corners and info in Viewfinder a little more difficult to see, although removing the rubber eye cup helps a lot. As with all these situations you need to be aware of light entering the viewfinder and affecting exposure reading, just cover it after framing if this is a problem.
