It is compatible with a D700 too

It doesn't say it here but this eyepiece does work on a D700. I wrote Nikon's tech support about it and they said they would post the information, they never did. It's easy to install and I have had no problems with it. If you have a D700 and were wondering if this will work on it, it does, buy it.

OK--if you can install it

The eyecup works but I think the instructions are bogus. The instructions say to re-attach the original rubber ring (the one already on the camera eyepiece) to the eyecup assembly. I couldn't get it to work. I simply put the naked eyepiece part INTO the eyecup, attached the supplied ring and then re-attached THAT assembly to the camera. That was the only way I could get it to work. Nikon should either build the eyecup into their cameras or not make it an accessory option at all.

Always gone.


from Grand Junction, CO, USA

I loved the eyecup but every time I turned around it was gone. The camera would brush against my body and knock it off, or in and out of the bag would knock it off. Now it's gone and I can't find it. In the woods somewhere.


I would buy this product again and again

Nikon DK-19 Rubber Eyecup is good to shoot it out door when it is bright sunny day.




from Seattle

I bought this to go with the magnifying eyepiece. I thought it would make the eyepiece more comfortable to use. The rubber bends back and doesn't really keep the cup shape. I guess it is better than putting your eye on the magnifying piece, but i don't think it is worth the cost.


A must have!

I wear glasses and this really helps.


Wouldn't be without one

Great for blocking distracting stray light.




from Fort Myers, FL  -  Semi-Professional

I used one on my Nikon D700 and now on the new D800. Helps to keep sunlight from entering around your eye. It folds flush to the camera body when not in use.


Very useful item


from Monterrey, NL Mexico

It prevents extraneous light coming into the viewfinder from the rear, altering exposure. It provides an additional point of contact for steadier shooting when hand-holding and even when from a tripod. It allows you to concentrate on your composition. Just make sure you use the metallic ring to instal it to prevent it from falling off. Follow the instructions included.


Excellent shadowing


from Stuart, FL  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Easy installation on D4. Firmly attached and unlikely to come loose.


Nikon DK-19 Eyecup


from San Diego, CA  -  Semi-Professional

Excellent piece that I've had on all of my better Nikon cameras.




from Ellicott City, MD  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Nikon has changed the design for the better - it no longer easily pops off the eyepiece. I really like this style of eyecup - soft rubber - and have been using something like this for ~35years on my various cameras. I love the way these conform to the eye, no matter how the camera is held. The DK-19 fit the magnifier I use on my D7000, but the DK-19 I bought ~5years ago (then used with a D70) was a bit softer than this version. I purchased a new Nikon D-19 in June 2013 as a backup in case my other one gets lost, but this one fits so snuggly it's unlikely to inadvertently get knocked off. While this one fits snuggle, I have found I can reduce the chance of losing these types of eyecups by folding them down when not in use.
