Question about Minolta X-700 35mm SLR Camera
Just got hold of X-700 and can understand/follow most of downloaded manual.
One ?simple question is when manually focussing ,the centre circle often has black/solid upper or lower hemisphere making it impossible to align 2 parts of focal subject.Is this telling me something that I have wrong setting for?_Any help will be welcome.I'm probably asking something very basic here so no laughs please!!.
What you are looking at in the middle is called a split prism whilst it is good to determine focus you have found the one short fall.
You will notice that it gets worse with the longer focal length lenses, when you have the half black image, just try moving your eye around the viewinder up, down, left right, you will find that the half that is black may change, the black is caused by poor alignment of the eye in relation to the optical axis center of the viewfinder system.
Not a fault or problem as such just something to be aware of and try to work around it.
