Taming/restraining runaway viewfinders
So I dropped my Leica Frankenfinder, for the second time. The first was at MoMA, on the marble near the back veranda. This time, it slid out of the shoe of a Fuji G690, bounced off the sidewalk, and rolled into the street.
Miraculously, aside from a little road rash (~1mm) on two more corners, nothing got broken or misaligned.
But the question remains - what is the best way to catch one of these things if it slips off the camera (for example, if you forget to screw down the lock)?
I have arrived at a lens cap keeper (cord) that clips onto the strap/lug of the camera, tied to a small black cable management clip held onto the finder with 3M mounting tape.
You have a better idea?
