Die kaart hing bij mij in de klas, ik zat er twee jaar onder.
KMRennie: At the risk of seeming naïve. Aren’t many of you completely missing the point. The viewfinder is an aid to composition. The view through an OVF is not reality. If you want reality I will happily sell you a precision cut piece of mounting card with a 3:2 cut out (4:3 cut outs will also be available). This can be made weatherproof with the addition of some cling film. Reading many of the posts I get the distinct feeling that many contributors never get beyond the “looking at the image in the viewfinder stage” and do not actually press the shutter far less print the resulting image. If you want to “see” what you are about to shoot can I suggest raising your eye a few cm above the eyepiece (OVF or EVF ) and look. You can even save a lot of money and weight by not bringing the camera. Larger viewfinder, no problem, larger piece of card. There is only one question to be answered. Does the viewfinder help ME take better images?
Completely agree on that a viewfinder is an aid for composition. But weren´t we born with a handy viewfinder? The thumbs and forefingers trick? Hold your hands in front of you and make a little square using said fingers. Shift the hands to make any cut from 1:1 to 16:9 or whatever. Vary the distance to your eye to ´zoom´. While doing so walk around a bit, you might find a better shot of the subject.
This is the F18U, a somewhat obscure model, built for upside-down missions, and the U shown here is not out of control, itÂ´s pilot is just having a good look if the runway is clean before landing. Important when your nose is 18 inches off the deck when at touchdown. IÂ´d say the image is somewhat overconstructed - why put the cockpit where normally sits the nosegear?
