    WTB - Bronica SQ prism and focus screen

    Looking for a focus screen for my SQ-B as well as a standard prism. PM me if you have any for sale.

    Thanks!

    Which screen? Plain matte?
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.

    Does the plain matte have a split prism? Looking for such as long as its clean and relatively unscratched. Minor imperfections are ok.

    No, plain matte is just that- a plain matte surface. There's also matte with split image, matte with split image surrounded by a microprism ring, matte with central microprism, plain matte with grid lines, and two with scribed lines for the regular and panoramic 35mm backs: one with split image with microprism ring, and one plain matte.

    If you have no luck here, try BUG (Bronica Users Group), or KEH. KEH is very trustworthy as to condition. I also saw used ones on B+H's or Adorama's site a while back.

    Thanks for the clarification and suggestions. Just got and SQ-B and its bare bones with no screen.

    I think for my needs a matte screen with split image surrounded by a microprism ring, or a matte with split image would work.

    I checked KEH and I'll look at the other resources you suggested.

    Again, thanks for your help.

    I just looked at KEH. That microprism/split screen in BGN should do well. KEH's BGN condition is generally very good. As you don't require the screen to be pristine, that should be suitable.
