There are occasions when one must shield the D5200 viewfinder so stray light does not affect the exposure. Nikon provides a finder cover (DK-5) for this purpose, but the in place finder eyepiece must first be removed before the cover can be installed. Since it is only a matter of time for me to either break or lose one or the other, and since removal and replacement can be a "p i t a", I'm wondering if anyone has found a better, easier method? Here are my first thoughts: 1. Use a small section of soft pipe insulation with a rubber band to press against the finder. The band can be placed over the top of the flash hood. 2. Place a bit of blue painters tape across the finder when needed (painters tape is known for easy release and no residue).
Any other ideas or remedies?
As always, thanks in advance for your input.
