    Wonky finder

    I have been finding that when I use the Voigtlander viewfinder on the DP1 my horizons are always tilted a bit. I assumed that I was doing something wrong, but yesterday I tried it on another camera and got the same result, so I assume the framelines in the finder are rotated slightly. Is it safe to assume that if I send it back to Cosina they can sort it out for me? In the meantime I guess I'll go back to using the LCD. That's OK though because I'm going to want to compare the LCD on the DP1 to the one on the DP2, so I should probably get used to using it again.

    That's my Monday morning babble. I think I need some coffee.

    If you haven't noticed any problems, you're probably OK. I have been straightening all my images without really giving much thought as to why they were tilted. But the other day I shot something that was really straight and square, and when I checked the shot, it was not level at all. So I knew something was wrong. Oh well, hopefully the 40mm finder for the DP2 will be OK.

    I had the frame lines go completely askew in a CV finder. Took it back to the dealer and he just handed me a new one. Apparently this is not an isolated case.

    In that case, I think I'll give that a try. Thanks.

    I guess yours is fine then. If I line mine up on a vertical, everything will be tilted to the right. So it looks like the finder is going back to Cosina.
