    Sorry. I moved up in format from 6x7cm to 4x5 inches, then to what I shoot now, 8x10 and 7x17 inch negatives in two different cameras. The camera in my avatar shoots a 7x17 inch negative. The larger cameras let more light back to the viewing screen. I can see there well enough to focus the camera. I am 71 years old and wear trifocal glass. Unfortunately deteriorating eye sight can be part of the aging process.

    I should add that aftermarket ground glass screens are available that will brighten the image one or more stops. I have one on my RZ and it does help. I have forgotten the brand names. Perhaps someone else can offer that information.
