[langtitle=nl]Schoonmaken van de zoeker[/langtitle]


Ik heb een vraag. Mijn zoeker is van de binnenzijde vuil.
Hoe maak ik dit schoon? Heb een pentax spiegelreflex K100D

Wie heeft er een goed advies?

I'm interested in a good explanation of how to open the holder for the viewfinder too. I did it a few months ago but it was very hard to remove and resulted in me seriously marking the viewfinder. Is there a tool/trick to it?

It's so easy on my k10 and k20 that I was surprised that the k100 is so hard.

Basically, there is a retaining 'ring' (it's actually square) that has to be released. It will swing out of the way allowing the viewfinder to be gently removed and cleaned. Put it back in was almost as hard as there was on mine a metal spacer to contend with. I have to say that I'm unlikely to try it again myself.

The K100 was not designed for the user to open the screen.

Have a look here:

Before you remove the focusing screen, try to clean it while it is inside the camera.

Just remove the lens and use a blower to puff against it from below. There shouldn't be any dirt on the other side anyhow.

Even if you remove the focussing screen (not that hard) try to avoid touching it with anything. These things scratch very, very easily. I'd only use a blower on them.
