I have a SF1, not a SF1N, so I don't know anything about an orange strip. But you can download the manual here...

The only thing I can think of is IIRC the shutter speeds are displayed vertically on the left hand side of the finder with orange LEDs.

I have a working SF1n on my table at home. In about an hour I'll post up an actual answer for you.

In the Viewfinder:
  • Focus Frame in the Center
  • Orange LED shutter speed indicator on the right
  • In-Focus Hexagon and red arrow warning indicators on the bottom
Everything else happens om the top LCD.

Ok I'll check it when it arrives, I don't think the seller was familiar with the camera and he was giving me a heads up...

Orange stripe mystery solved, it literally was new in back and the orange stripe was the factory insert that needs removed to load film lol...
