View Full Version : Kiev 4am and Jupiter 12 with no 35mm finder
I just got my new black Jupiter 12 and it looks nice with the black kiev 4am. I really want to try it out...the problem is my 35mm viewfinder is about two weeks away. Any way I can fake it for a while?
I tried to do without, but the lens is just too much wider than the finder for me to figure out. So instead I bought a broken Oly XA2 at a local thrift shop and pulled the finder from it (it's a 35mm lens) and glued it to the shoe of a dead flash. Instant homebrew finder that works well enough for me. There are a few links out there to other homebrew solutions as well. If you search the camera and coffee thread there is at least one shot of my 4a with it attached.
I would expect that you could find a disposable with a 35mm lens cheaply too and it's finder would work as well.
