Hi
I don't know what has shifted, but the view in the viewfinder of my SR2 is now crooked - you have to tilt your head about 15 degrees clockwise to see the image straight. The camera has a t bar and B&W Sony video tap fitted.
Rotating the t bar slightly only moves the image in the video tap.
Any ideas on how to correct the viewfinder image would be appreciated.

BTW, the camera had a S16 Daemon conversion many years ago.

Dom Jaeger helped me out with a similar problem here:

Not sure if the T bar has the same internals as the J bar but it was not too difficult.

I don't think I've ever used any film camera where the viewfinder image was entirely true, or in fact not liable to flop about randomly as the camera was rotated...
