    SL66 and Cropping in the Viewfinder

    I notice sometimes that if I use the tilting mechanism with the 150mm lens, that part of the viewfinder is cropped off. Does that mean the image will be cropped too?

    Don't worry about that loss of the image on the ground glass.

    In the "In Practical Use" instruction manual that came with my SL66 on page 8 under "Shooting: 3. Focusing:" It says:

    "With lenses of very long focal length and when using extreme depth tilt the mirror may cut off a strip near the top of the screen image. The film in every case still records the full picture area."

    Interesting rationale. Sort of "why not just pull the trigger?" to find out if a gun is loaded.

    If you're looking down the barrel and it is. You'll only do it once.
    Heavily sedated for your protection.
