Hi there,

I was wondering if anyone could provide me with some information regarding the eyepiece or viewfinder of this camera model. My camera's eyepiece seems to be fused into one position and I can't adjust the rings. Does this affect my overall abilty to focus the camera?

Thanks
Sandra

No, ont at all, the focussing id done with the lens, the 1014E is a very fine camera.

Not entirely true, matthew.

The eyepiece has a diopter, which is the ring that is fused on Sandra's camera.

Sandra, hopefully the diopter in it's fused state is focused for your eyes well enough to see through the viewfinder. If it looks fuzzy or overly-sharp, then you'll have issues seeing throught the finder well enough to focus properly.

Perhaps a shot of WD40 on the ring?

Good luck.

Thanks (Joseph and Matthew)

I'll give the WD40 a try and tweak it a bit more to see if I can get it to move.
