NEW: This is the third version of the adapter. The geometry has been refined to match the shape of the camera's eyepiece more precisely. There are now two hooks to hold the adapter in place. This new version is designed to fit both the X-T10 and X-T20!
This adapter allows to mount an eyepiece like the DK-19 for Nikon cameras to the X-T10 and X-T20 cameras by Fujifilm.
I have created this because I percept the smear that settles down on the viewfinder frontglass very quickly and the great amount of ambient light that makes its way through the tiny built-in eyepiece as huge disadvantages of the camera. If you mount a bigger eyepiece using this adapter, you will gain a much better shooting experience :)
The Adapter is designed to just work. To mount it on your camera, simply pull it over the camera's eyepiece according to the video below. The eye still sensor works when the adapter is mounted.
Please note: The Eyepiece shown in some of the Images is not included.
Recently, two questions have been asked several times:
- Does it work with the X-T20?
The longer story:
I had received feedback regarding the X-T20 for an older version of the adapter : It did fit, but not as tight as on the X-T10.
I do not know whether this is related to the general form of the X-T20's viewfinder or a consequence of production diversification.
I have worked together with owners of the X-T20 to optimize the fit and the current version (V3) finally works with the X-T20.
- Can the Screen be articulated with adapter and Nikon eyepiece attached?
Yes. If you pull out the top of the screen at first, it may hit the border of the eyecup, so it is easier to pull out the bottom of the screen at first and then articulate the screen as desired. You can articulate the screen to any postition, so there is no limitation introduced by the adapter.
By the way, I greatly appreciate constructive customer feedback. So, if you have a great suggestion for one of my products, please feel free to drop me a message! If I decide to implement it (which is not always possible unfortunately) and you are the first one who came up with it, I will send you a gift code as soon as the new version of the product is out so that you will be able to receive a free copy!
