Old Viewfinder, New home

Had this Viewfinder off an ANSCO folding camera from around 1920, cleaned it up and screwed it to an extra
hotshoe cover.
It covers the perfect view for the 01 lens and folds down.

Also found out that to get the cleanest image turn DOWN the sharpness 1 or 2 notches, it makes a great difference
especially when the noise reduction cuts in. Gets rid of the smudges in fine details.

Nice! Looks like a prop from the retro-future movie, Brazil.
