Our take on the Nikon DR-6

by Dave Bar
Nikon

See the world from a whole new point of view with Nikon's DR-6 right-angle viewfinder attachment. Just slip it onto your compatible Nikon SLR for a clear, unreversed image of everything your viewfinder sees, oriented at a right angle for easier viewing. This attachment is indispensable for low-angle macro photography, taking waist-level snapshots, or shooting from a tripod. Plus you get your choice of 1X or 2X magnification for better manual focusing or critical close-up work.

Features

Overview: The Nikon DR-6 is a right-angle viewfinder attachment that allows you see the viewfinder image at a right angle. To attach, the DR-6 simply slides down over the viewfinder (any rubber eyepieces must first be removed from the camera). You can rotate the DR-6 so that you are viewing the image from the left, right, above, or below. It is compatible with all Nikon SLR cameras with a rectangular viewing eyepiece (see compatibility chart below).

Magnification Lever: The DR-6 has two reproduction ratio settings: 1:1 or 1:2. The 1:1 setting allows you to see the viewfinder image as it is on the camera, without any magnification. For close-up work, you can flip the lever to 1:2 and the viewfinder image is enlarged to 2x.

Diopter Ring: The DR-6 has a diopter adjustment ring so you can adapt the image to your individual eyesight. At 1:1 the diopter adjustment is -8.0 to +3.8m−1 and at 1:2 the adjustment is -5.0 to +6.0m−1.
