Question about Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-V1 Digital Camera
I notice that when I look through the optical viewfinder, I see a faint yet clear black thin horizontal line that splits the the view. It has no impact on the view, and does not change when I change the zoom. The LCD view is fine, and the photos are fine. Do I have a problem, or is this something that I just have not noticed before. Thank-you.
It shouldn't be there, but as the optical viewfinder is completely separate from the photographic light path it's nothing to worry about either.
Normally it's caused by either a hair or fibre which has somehow entered the viewfinder (rare) or more commonly by a fine scratch across the front window to the viewfinder. Also check the rear viewfinder viewing lens as the same damage could occur there but as that lens is relatively protected it's unlikely.
Any further fixing involves dismantling the DSC-V1 and possibly sourcing spares made of purest unobtanium so if the camera works perfectly well then leave the screwdrivers safely in the toolbox for now.
