    I've never retrofitted mine, but i've heard of some people inserting +1 or +2 diopter glass into their filters for closer focus.

    I may send in my F7 for an overhaul and inquire about fitting a filter holder or two with different filters. The closeup filters are interesting and I will try and look into that. That would really expand what one could do with these unique cameras.

    I just stumbled onto another set of these, so will definitely experiment with close up filters. Anyone have suggestions on how to start something like this?

    gel filters

    I unfortunately had one of the problem F7's. I was in the shop three or four times so I finally gave in and sold it. I also had a 1st version Horizont, the all metal one, and have never had a problem with it. My widelux banded terribly but the Horizont never has. It's quite sharp, has a great VF with inernal bubble level and works well except the spacing between frames is a little on the wide side which is no problem. I have a friend that has the same model and she's never had a problem either. The old version like we have would be a very economical and reliable alternative to the Widelux.


    I think I still have the filter rings and will have to look for them. I tool the old filters out and cut gelatin wratten filters to fit. I installed a 29 and an 87c or high speed IR. If I remember correctly the filters come apart very easily and it's very easy to install gelatins. What are the filter frames worth without a case?
