Re: the picture at the top:I'm confused. If that's an add-on viewfinder on top of his camera, what's he looking through?
Photography obviously can be fun...
I 'm afraid that your answer contains a number of inaccuracies.Trouble is, the built-in viewfinder only had a field for view corresponding to a standard lens.
It's not a film camera it's a digital M9P but the rest of your answer is correct.Re: the picture at the top:
If it's a film camera it has a rangefinder.There's a viewfinder window and another smaller window opticlally linked so that you see a double image in the middle of the viewfinder. You place the middle over the point you want to focus on, and turn the lens until the two images coincide. It's a fast and simple way of focussing manually.
Trouble is, the built-in viewfinder only had a field for view corresponding to a standard lens. If you use a longer lens, you focus though the built in viewfinder, but ue an accessory viewfinder that matches theangle ofview of youlonger lens to frame the shot
