Hello,

 

This is my first post.

 

I got a problem with the viewfinder of my Beaulieu 4008 ZMII.

 

When i look in the viewfinder its almost pitch black like it would be on F/22, but when I lift the fade lever on the top it's half black, can anyone help me ?

 

Cheers,

 

Kael

Have you tried running the camera? It uses a mirrored shutter so if the shutter hasn't stopped square in the center it will have a dark screen.
