Hello,

 

It actually never bothered me until today as i'd like to try a nightshoot. My Moviecam Compact has a left tilted frame in the viewfinder? I would say it is the electronic that does this, and NOT the groundglass (i hardly doubt that).

 

is there any chance i somehow can correct this? i know it sounds ridiculous because its just tiny bit to the left but it starts to anoy me.

 

I also am looking for a video assist for this camera (if anyone has one to sell)

 

thank you

randy

Randy, do pass by and let me have a look at it. I’m sure we’ll find the bug.

The glow mask should be adjustable for correct overlay, on the Compact Mk 2 the Movielite (removeable unit on the door side) has 2 adjustment set screws in the side, sometimes you need to remove the cover and physically move the mask generator.
