There are two of them on ebay right now.

What is the deal with the viewfinder modification all of a sudden?

Who figured out how to do the modification?

I thought the reflex viewfinder on the K-3 couldn't be modified.

How is this possible.

Is there ann internal viewfinder mask that can be modified?

You may want to have this clarified, but listing could only mean that the viwefinder had the 1:33 mask removed i.e. the reference to "no markings". On my S16 K3, I left it in just to have some sort of framing reference and place everything slightly off center to the right using the notch in the mask as a guide.

If there is a removable viewfinder mask it would be very easy to file it out slightly to get to the Widescreen Screen ratio being filmed.

Is that what they are doing? Opening up a viewfinder mask?

I was under the impression the viewfinder prism was the limiting factor.

Wow. I'm going to have to find this out. I think a Will M. on this board has a Super 16 with the modified viewfinder. Maybe he will spill the beans on how it was done.

Hope so.

When I was having my pro upgrade done by Du-all, they were adamant that there wasn't any really reliable to way modify the viewfinder so it was either you leave the mask in or no. If somebody's figured out a way to modify the viewfinder, that's frontpage news ( of a sort).
