Hi All,

I would like to identify what the screws on the top front of the camera are for?
I'm thinking of using them for a small monitor attachment but don't want to undue them
until I'm sure nothing is attached on the inside of the casing.

Cheers

I thought they might be retaining screws for the carrying strap ring just in front, but I've just loosened them and the ring is still tight. So I'd stick to gaffer tape or sticky pads.

Thanks Mark, but I'm trying to avoid gaffer/sticky tabs/cable ties.
I take it you didn't remove them completely.
I might just take a chance when I get home and see what happens...

Cheers

Mark told correct.
This is two small screws, what for the carrying strap ring just in front.
The screws do not have any influence of mechical or optical quality of camera.

If you need any gaffer system, you can take away of front panel and make of any holes on upper side of body of camera.
But, you mus be very careful.
The camera have systems of pisms of viewfinder on this size of body and you can lost of flange focal distanec after you take away of front panel.

That's why, you need search of other points of monotor addition.

I can recommed of side place of body from side of upper film spool. The body of camera do not have any parts of mechanism on this place and have of decorative panel inside of camera.

The ring bracket, I imagine, is just a right-angle fitting with the screws threaded into it, and can stay where it is. I'm sure you could attach a bracket with longer screws to take a weight of a few ounces.
Not taking the front panel off is a very good idea.
