Hi. I just bought a 2008 and have a question about the ground glass. Do you only put the ground glass in to focus the diopter and then remove it or do you keep the ground glass in while shooting? If it's kept in while shooting why did they make them removable?

Thanks

You can leave it in while shooting, in won't cause any harm, but it may cut down some light in an already dark viewfinder - so removing can be helpful when the main objective is framing. Also super 8 usually has a large depth of field so focus is not always as critical as say in a 16mm camera where the ground glass is usually fixed and where reflex viewfinders are naturally lighter.
