Shooting by VPK

     

 

Poor finder system

No doubt VPK is not convenient to use. You will be surprised to see this finder.

         
     
  This is the finder. The size of finder screen is only 10mm.  
       
     
 

You can check the view area like this. But, in this case, the camera is placed in dark place. If you take pictures in bright place, you will find you can see nothing in the finder because from the glare.

The view on the screen is mirror image. You may be frustrated using this poor viewfinder

 
         
     
  In horizontal position shooting, you can rotate the finder 90 degree. So you can see the finder screen from the top of the camera.  
         

 

I think you can guess why the finder screen is cross-shaped.
