Hi Martin,

yes whenever you fit an extension viewfinder the image will be upside down, you need to rotate the image back to upright.

Depending on the viewfinder you have, some have a knob near the elbow that you turn, some have a button that you hold in while you swivel the viewfinder arm through 180 degrees, then release the button so the prism clicks in to place.

When you go back to the short eyepiece you need to rotate the image back again.

Jon Fauer's Arriflex 35 book is a great resource if you own a 35BL4:
