Save my knees

I first purchased a right angle viewfinder about 35 years ago. When I purchased my first Nikon DSLR it was my first accessory. The DR-6 slips easily onto the rectangular eyepiece after you remove the soft factory eyecup. The viewfinder allows me to get my camera into positions that would make it impossible to compose a shot through the traditional ways. The most obvious use has been the low level shots and it has done wonderful service there, but its articulated neck allows the user to shoot ...

I first purchased a right angle viewfinder about 35 years ago. When I purchased my first Nikon DSLR it was my first accessory. The DR-6 slips easily onto the rectangular eyepiece after you remove the soft factory eyecup. The viewfinder allows me to get my camera into positions that would make it impossible to compose a shot through the traditional ways. The most obvious use has been the low level shots and it has done wonderful service there, but its articulated neck allows the user to shoot in both landscape and portrait postions on the ground and literally at an arms length above my head with the eyepiece pointed straight down. The DR-6 has a diopter adjustment which is critical in macro (micro) work when you are in manual focus mode and a 2X power lever that magnifies the image for best focus. I love my DR-6 because it keeps me clean, allowing me to do from squatted positions shots that would otherwise require full prone positions in the wet grass and or mud and it has saved me the pain of bent knees more often than I can count...

Very usefull

Very good and a great improvement for my D200 (and in the past, to my D70) But I would love a "click" and a release button. It´s very easy to lose them on the field.

Great Accessory

By

from Sugar Land, TX, USA

I have had this for about 3 months. It has helped with taking photos that would other wise require being in an awkward position. Taking photos of ceilings is much easier too. It is a must for many architecture shots The only issue I have had is with the 2x magnifier switch. Sometimes it gets switched unintentionally. But that is very minor.

Should have bought one sooner

By

from Colorado  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

use for macro work and for constellation photos when piggy-backed on a telescope; very effective; eyepiece rotates to four orientations, so works for verticals and horizontals; especially useful for me is to hang camera upside down on inverted tripod column with eyepiece rotated up to comfortably frame small plants that grow close to the ground; 1x-2x switch is good idea and also useful, although 2x magnification yields a lower quality image

Excellent, well-made addition to my D600

By

from Atlanta, GA  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Useful for low-angle shooting. I got used to a waist-level finder on my old F and F2 cameras; this is as easy to use and much easier and lighter to pack and carry. I have yet to find anything not to like.

End Your Knee Pain

By

from Apollo Beach, FL  -  Semi-Professional

I've been crouching behind a tripod for years - but as I've gotten older it's not as easy as it used to be... Recently I had knee surgery and I figured it was time. So I went over to Adorama's site, where I get the best service and prices, to order one of Nikon's DR-6 right angled viewers. It was a little on the expensive side, but well worth it. It's very easy to use and snaps on over the viewfinder window in seconds. Once attached, you can use the built-in detents to rotate it either clockwise or counter-clockwise in 90 degree increments, or freely rotate to any position. On the downside, it only works left/right up/down so you can't pull the eyepiece out to say, 45 degrees. This can make for a bit of a challenge if you're have the camera upside down. But how many times will you do that anyway? The eye-piece, crowned with a soft, black rubber eyecup, can be focused for optimum view and the entire unit can view at 1:1 or 2:1 with the flick of a small lever. Very handy for macros. Like virtually all decent gear, the DR-6 comes with it own de riguer black carry case with velcro closure. But in order to use the right-angled viewer, the camera's standard rubber-covered eyepiece must be popped off prior to installing the DR-6. Nikon thoughtfully addressed the safety and security of this oh-so-easy-to-lose eyepiece by providing a little pouch inside the case to store it in. Finally, for those who like to be festooned with gear, the pouch has a sewn-in belt loop so you can hang it from your belt, camera strap or harness. While the DR-6's build is decent and the optics excellent, I would have preferred a metal body (which would have jacked the price way up) for durability. But, with a little care, I'm sure I'll get years of trouble-free use out of the DR-6. So if you find yourself shooting in awkward positions - whether flat out at ground level on the beach or doing table-top inside, or spend a lot of time crouching, do you knees a favor and get a DR-6 Right Angle Viewer. Trust me…your knees will thank you.

Great for macro!

I do a lot of macro work and sometimes I have to get down low. This saves my body a whole lot of wear and tear!

Nikon DR-6

Love the ease of use and that it has built in 2X viewing. It does slip off too easily. Almost lost it.

Bought this for my Nikon D7000

By

from Jackson Hole, WY  -  Hobbyist/Enthusiast

Fits the D7000 viewfinder perfectly. The image is clear and properly oriented. I especially like the built-in diopter adjustment that allows you to get a crisp focus with or without eyeglasses. Kind of expensive but works great for macro photography or when you're working low to the ground.

What a relief for my aching back!

By

from Ebensburg PA  -  Professional

In my film lifetime, I used a Nikon F with the waist-level viewfinder for copystand - it took me a couple of years to wake up and get this for my digital camera. It makes the chore a lot easier. Adorama service was superb!

For many photographers, taking a photograph means raising their camera to their eye, focusing, composing, and pushing the button. What they end up with is a snapshot that certainly explains to their viewer where they were and what they saw, but rarely results in a photograph worthy of being blown...Read More
