    I used to have this rubber eye cup on my Canon AE1. It did a great job of ensuring a more lightproof seal between my face and the camera... helped to expose the shot without me grinding my eyeball into the eyepiece.

    Has anyone seen such a beast for sale? I haven't seen one anywhere in searching. I might be looking using the wrong terms.

    Thanks!

    The D300 comes with the Nikon DK-23 eyecup. This is nothing like the relatively massive Canon ED-E.Offhand I don't know of a similar "beast" for the D300.

    UPDATE...

    I found an eye cup on ebay. Just got it today. (from Japan, interestingly enough)

    I like it. It's very comfortable, totally seals off exterior light, and has the added benefit of keeping my ginormous schnoz off of the LCD screen. It does kinda stick out a lot more than the one I had on my AE1 eons ago, but it seems to work better too. I'll let y'all know how it works in the field, but so far I'm pleased.
