It doesn't work

I don't know how this product earns four stars; I have to force it on and off my Nikon D300s. Since I will have to remove it when I put the camera in the bag, it's useless. I got it for Christmas and needed 5 minutes (and a call to Hoodman) to force it on, but couldn't get it off with all the force of my two thumbs lifting the tabs (I'm a 165-lb man). I finally used a screwdriver, scratching the camera. Obviously it shouldn't fall off, but it should go on and off comparably to the OEM eyepiec...

Hoodman replaced it, but the new one works barely better. I'm going for the screwdriver now. I'm torn between filing it with a jewelry file to try to make it fit better or seeing if Hoodman will give me a refund when I don't have a receipt. Probably the former; I wear glasses, plus I was tipped that it makes shooting with a big lens hand-held much steadier. And there's nothing out there like it.

Really helpful if you wear glasses.

By

Helps reading the details especially in bright light. Covers most of my eye glass lens. Attached easily to my Nikon D610. I'm left eyed, so I appreciated the reversibility.

Great Eyecup If You Don't Need Glasses

By

from Cheshire, CT  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

I bought this to use while wearing eyeglasses and it reminded me of my camcorder eyepiece which is very comfortable and useful. However, I found that, given this is an "after market" accessory and not integrated with my Nikon D80, the image through the cup-added viewfinder appears further from view when wearing glasses. The solution: Take the glasses off which defeats the purpose of this accessory! In addition, many reviewers comments that the eyecup blocks in part the lcd screen to view images are accurate. See the screen totally, ou have to angle the rubber cup up and away. If the entire viewfinder with eyecup could "swing up" like my Sony camcorder, then you could view the lcd without any hassle. Other than that, the eyecup is comfortable to use and does block out light from coming in on either side. So, for those who DON'T wear glasses, this might work for them.

Let's you keep both eyes open

By

from Carlsbad, CA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

The Hoodman Eyecup for Eyeglasses works well with my eyeglasses but works even better without the glasses. I still have the regular Hoodman eyecup that I use with my D90, I bought the eyeglasses one for my new D7100. Both are very good. I find that the regular blocks out the light but you need to press your face where you can leave skin oil on the LCD. The larger eyeglass Hoodman can stop all light and makes the total focus on the viewfinder with very little skin oil on the LCD. You can get two clearly separate eye pictures with both eyes open. The viewfinder picture is surrounded by a black border while the other open eye lets you see what's happing outside of the framed viewfinder picture. Helps you to follow moving subjects. The only con could be it is larger but that's is what makes it better. This does not create a real problem for me.

Live in sunny Arizona and it does the job of keeping out the side light.

Shopper  Why Did You Choose This?
David B  I put this on my camera and dogonit I can see through it! It works!
Shopper  Does it work with the D600?
WALTER R  Works like a charm!
Shopper  Will this fit the Nikon D50? Ho well does it work with eyeglasses?
ALAN G  I do not know if the Hoodeye fits the D50. It should, but Adorama should be able to answer that question, or contact Hoodeye through their website. I have a D7000 and it might be the same eyepiece as the D50. I wear glasses and it is perfect for me. It cuts out glare and light-leak, and helps my vision.
