Dim Pen FT viewfinder

  1. BetterSense
    My biggest problem with my Pen FT is how dim the viewfinder is. Has anyone had any luck cleaning the viewfinder or replacing the half-silvered mirrors with regular ones to brighten the finder?

    I would not touch the mirrors under any circumstance! That is a pro's job IMHO.

    I would never do that myself nor would I recommend to do that yourself. The Pen F and FT cameras are difficult to repair, and there are only a few repairmen that are known for good work on these gems. A standard CLA costs between $100 and €180 and includes a C for the finder (the C one that comes in a CLA).

    The well-known ones are probably these:

    The half silvered mirror is required for the meter to work. An FT with a "regular" mirror is called a Pen FV.
