    Recently succumbed and bought a Graflex -> just fixed the rangefinder by replacing the beamsplitter for one that actually works.


    Upshot is I now have a few square cm's of 50/50 beamsplitter glass that I'm happy to cut up and mail to anyone interested...


    The Graflex was an easy fix, well worth to get the brighter image.

    beamsplitter? Is it dichroic by any chance? If so I'd love it :smile:

    edit: Though what I want to do is make a single exposure trichromy camera with a pair of splitters.. may not be ideal for that.

    Sorry - it's going off to the UK. It would not be suitable for optics - only viewfinders :smile:

    Suggest: surplusshed.com for your purposes!
