    645 VF vs 35mm VF

    I am wondering the difference in coverage between a 645/75mm VF and a 35mm accessory VF of the type that came with the Yashica GSN wa/tele lenses. If the coverage is close to the same, I am going to try and rotate the foot on one of the acc. finders and use on my Zenobia 645. Any thoughts on this?

    a viewfinder for a 40-50mm lens on a 35mm camera would be reasonably close.

    Comparing the w/a aspect of the auxiliary VF to the body VF, they appear very close. I drilled new holes, to position it vertically. I think it should be OK.
    Thanks for your input.

    VF now correctly oriented for 645. Project completed.

    Nice! You may want to put a little black electrical tape on the top and bottom since the 35mm frame is a longer aspect ratio than 645.

    Like what TimmyMac said, i'd be worried about the aspect ratios more than anything, unless you just frame in the center all the time.
