Improving Focusing of FED 1g with Leica parts
I have an FED 1g 1954. One of the latest of Leica Copy Generation First. I used original Leicas and
-FED focusing time is longer and more difficult especially at dim light.
-at FED focusing visor , moving image is at the same color with the elapsed image. At Zeiss or Leica , moving image is fluorescent orange.
-dim light focusing is headache , you have to find 3 nearest object to try your luck in short time.
I know colored glass screen can be movable but after 60 years , its rock solid. How can I move the screen thread inside the camera body thread . I dont want to contaminate the internal parts or space with a chemical and I dont want to harm the chrome and the leather. What is the best way ?
- Can I use early Leica circular colored glass with metal thread , focusing thingy on FED 1g ? Are they compatible ?
- What is the Leica class name of the colored circular thingy with thread , who sells them and what is the average price ?
I am talking about portholes.
