Greetings,

I've recently become the owner of a pretty immaculate 2B......my biggest beef is with the viewing of those irritating light baffles in the viewfinder.......does anyone know how they can be taken out? Is this something I can do myself?

I've read conflicting things about the validity of the baflles,and how the absence of them doesn't cause anY problems.....

I would appreciate any input.....

Thanks,
Milo

I wouldn't remove them - depending on the lens type, f-stops and lighting circumstances you are shooting at, they help preventing stray light and unwanted reflections from the ground glass (more about it in the book ANTON WILSON'S CINEMA WORKSHOP).
