35 SPn. Fixing cameras is fun, when it works
So, i traded a 2003 fuji digital camera (costed something like 400 USD when i bought it, selling price today, maybe 30 USD) for a Olympus 35 SPn, both where very happy with the trade.
It had some issues, the rangefinder was pretty far off, so i opened it up and pretty soon found the alignment screw, it was a really easy fix.
The meter works just fine, it is very consistent with my Voigtländer VC meter, the spot meter also works fine. When shooting 100 ASA i have to set the ASA dial to 50, but that is nothing i want to fix, instead of the 25-800 span I now have a 50-1600 span and in my world that is much better. I shoot mainly Provia 100 & 400 and Trix @ 400 or 1600.
So this weekend i will take it for a spin. The shutter seems to be good at all speeds. I sure hope i'm right.
I have looked at a couple of threads about lens hoods and right now I'm thinking about the vented 49mm screw in on ebay, anybody tried it? Will it block much of the viewfinder?
