As an eyeglass wearer, I really prefer using a rubber eyecup on my cameras.

Has anyone researched/located an eyecup that will work on the 8800?

I'm guessing Nikon doesn't make one but maybe a third party...?

Thanks,

Earl

Yepper, the viewfinder is great but I like the eyecup on my SONY because it blocks the light out from the perimeter. With cameras like the 8800 often times I have to cup my hand around the viewfinder.

Thanks,

Earl

There was a person selling universal eyecups that fit the 8800 on E Bay. I haven'tchecked for a few weeks, but it looked like he does it continuosly. I think it was $15 and looked OK in the picture.

In case you are interested in getting them a little cheaper, go to

I've been using one of these on my Oly E10 for awhile now. They work great.
