    You don't - the finder only assists with framing. You scale focus instead.

    Hasselblad sports finder?

    Is "scale focus" the same as "guesstimate"?

    For some

    Try it - you may be surprised how accurate you can become with just a little practice.

    And if you are shooting wider lenses, and at moderate to longer distances , the depth of field tends to be greater as well.

    It is what people who used your Kodak No 1 Pocket Autographic and Kodak No 1A Pocket Autographic cameras used throughout their currency.

    Hasselblad sports finder?

    I use the "walking pace" method, as in my stride is almost exactly 10 feet so I walk out the measurement on my Kodak's that is, but had a feet SLIGHTLY off focus issues so I'm using measuring tape (or string) from now on. No sports for me.

    Thanks for the info.

    Hasselblad made several versions of sports finders, one mounts in place of the hood or prisim, and has a small mirror and an eyepiece that shows the center of the screen so you can focus.
    I bought that one specifically so that I didn't need to rely on my guessimates in using it.

    There are (were) masks available for various focal lengths on some of the finders, I'm pretty sure there was one at least for the 60.
