    Hello! I have a new project. I want to shoot my yashica 44LM with 35mm film. I would put a finder that allows me to use it horizontally (panoramic). I thought of adapting an existing one, Porroflex, Kiev 60 ... or do some homebrew with mirrors ... Any ideas?
    Thanks!

    You could find a cheap finder for an accessory shoe or adapt on of the graflex finders, but they will be less useful than just putting hash marks on your ground glass.

    So you are mounting the camera sideways on the tripod? You can easily make a mask for the sports finder and use that.
