    Contax 645 and Angle Finder N

    Hi, anybody out there who knows whether the Contax "Right Angle Finder N" is compatible with the Contax 645? And, if you've used one, how did you like it? Thank you.

    Ray,
    You can use the Right Angle Finder N with your Contax 645. Make sure you got the proper adapter ring for your Contax 645 90 degree prism. Liking it is subjective here; I like the waist level finder more.

    Thank you, Son. Will definitely make sure to get the proper ring too. I have the "Angle C Finder" for my Canon and have grown to really appreciate it for a limited amount of the shooting I do, such as macro nature shots out in the woods. It is definitely an acquired taste! Again, thank you.

    Does waist level finder provides view of full frame in Contax?

    Ray,
    I understand completely where you are coming from when your system is composed of only a 90 degree view. In your case, having the right angle is a saving grace for your macro work. But having a waist level finder is a godsend.

    evgeny,
    The waist level finder provides a full frame on your Contax 645 which soon not be.

    Best Regards,

    Thanks Son, forgot to add earlier that I do indeed have the waist level finder too. I found and ordered the N finder, I have my lenses in place, and now all I need is a digital back for it. It's looking like my choice will be the P21+ if I can find one.
