View Full Version : rangefinder off?

06-13-2005, 10:36
maybe it was just too late and i was just too tired, but last night i could sworn that my rangefinder shifted itself and is now offcentered. i mean i suppose i could live with it considering i still have to get used to focusing with my right eye and the whole concept of shooting with both eyes open freaks me out as well.

im just wondering if anyone has noticed this happening to theirs as well?

Grab your RD-1, Now set the lens selector to 50mm ( Easyest to see the effect)
Now point to a white wall or something (it wont Matter)
as you are looking through the viewfinder turn the focus on whatever lens you have attached
you will see the frame lines move closer to the bottom right as you focus closer!! Parralax!
So you wern't seeing things and all is ok with your camera!
