User Comments: In my opinion this finder gives me the most accurate focusing and nicest view. It's a little bit like using the WLF but with higher magnification and the view is better shielded from light. I have bases for my 6008AF, Hy6, and the sliding back on the X-Act2 and just move the lupe back and forth between them as needed. This finder is very light weight too which can be an advantage. The trade off is that you have to be able to look down into the camera which isn't always possible. This does work well when the camera is on the tripod. My second choice is the 45 degree prism, but its a personal choice. I know a number of people who prefer the 90 degree finder. Have four really big and clear viewfinder to choose from is a huge advantage of the Rolleiflex system.
