Rangefinder, no.1 tip of all time.
1 month ago

I used to own the m9, bright big VF. But i wished i knew this tip back then.

Lately i am using a pure mechanical Kodak RetinaII rangefinder and focusing is pretty hard considering the small view. This tip saved me, i believe it will do wonders to your M9/ME/M.

I read this idea from a rangefinder forum, can't recall which one but the general idea is to stick a square tape equivalent to the size of the "moving" rangefinder focus window, to the main viewfinder.

This creates a surreal contrast square that allows a much easier focusing using the rangefinder, since all sides are easily contrasted.
