    SO I got the frameless one and plopped it in and missed focus completely on my first roll. Flipped it over and tried again and only missed on ONE shot. It rattles around in there without the metal frame ... but I need to use the split-focus screen with my 120mm portrait lens and prism. I have HELL getting good focus wide open using just the WLF. What to do!!!

    A PME works better than a wlf for me. Each to their own.

    Get one of the old style Hasselblad screens with split image rangefinder.
    They go for little money, and do work.

    Katie, as you have found the hard way, the glossy side must face up.

    What to do!!!
    I can see, pun intended, three options:
    1. As Q.G. suggests, hunt down a relatively cheap split image Hasselblad screen.
    2. Get a split image Kiev with frame and see if it focuses properly for your needs.
    3. Put a split image Kiev screen into the Hasselblad frame (you could likely get a camera store technician to do this at little or no cost).

    Good luck,
    Ted

    Katie,

    Just invest on either an old split from Hasselblad as Q.G suggested, or bite the bullet and get a Minolta made Acute with split, this eventually will save you alot of headhache.

    Decide well!

    I agree with both André and Q.G. on this one. If you look around you can find used Hasselblad screens of all types and flavors [with or without Acute Matte]. Bite to bullet, get something that works for you, and get back out there and shoot film!
