Wista 211005 overview

  • 1Description

Often while under the focusing cloth, a photographer wishes to simultaneously adjust tilt/rise/fall and focus while critically observing the ground glass with a loupe.  This is never easy; it is a true challenge to keep the loupe flush with merely the pressure of your head while still maintaining comfortable eye relief and not fogging everything up from the stress.  But Wista's sliding focusing loupe adapter solves this problem brilliantly.  It attaches to the focusing screen frame and can be moved freely horizontally or vertically on the surface of the focusing screen.  This hands-free magnifier is supplied with the focusing frame and base for Wista's 5x loupe, so one must install a ground glass and optional Fresnel lens.  This is designed to ensure accurate focusing and to enable both hands to be used for minute adjustments.

Allows critical hands-free ground glass observation

    Sliding Loupe Focusing Attachment is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Better than expected! After cataract surgery I have experienced considerable frustration trying to fine focus on the ground-glass. Despite being somewhat pricey and being a Special Order, Non-returnable item I decided to give it a try and I am actually quite satisfied with this item. Aside from being convenient it is also a real assist in finding the accurate focal point for swings and tilts as it frees both hands for use in simultaneously operating focus and tilt/swing adjustments. I find the level of magnification to be about right (I would have preferred 4X) and the range of adjustment adequate. The biggest negative is the obvious one with the failing of circular-based magnifiers and square-cornered focussing screens... you don't get to look into the corners though it is easily swung aside. I would buy this item again.
