Hi,
Is it possible to rebalance a plastic mirror shutter?
The mirror of my Éclair 16mm NPR is quite unbalanced and I?ve a feeling of unsteadiness in the viewfinder when the camera is running and it?s really hard to focus with accuracy during the shot, hopefully I often work with an AC but I need a perfect mirror to pull focus by myself and check focus on tricky shots...Should I change my mirror?
