True tech flip mirror
- Hi all,
I have just bought a flip mirror, second hand. Its the true tech flip
mirror. I was hoping I could pick the brains of people who own a true
tech flip mirror, on a couple of queries.
There are two questions, simply regarding the device itself.
1) This regards the mirror, and its position when in the 'down'
position, so that the light travels straight through and does not hit
the mirror. Now, where is the mirror supposed to be in the down
position? I would have thought it would lay flat on the base of the
flip mirror, but mine does not. The edges of the metal flat that
holds the mirror seem to 'catch' on the internal thread, and the
mirror does not lay completely flat, more at an angle, if this makes
sense. Is this normal, do all true tech flip mirrors do this, or do I
need to make small mods to it? I cannot imagine this is normal of it.
2) This regards the adjustment of the top 'finder' section. It has
the two adjustment screws, so that the image can be adjusted so it is
centred in both parts at the same time, yes? Well, on mine, this does
not seem to have enough adjustment to get it centred, or at least the
same. Its not far off, just not brill, are there any further
adjustments that can be made elsewhere, or is it something I will
have to live with?
Neither of these really effect the performance of the flip mirror, it
would just be nice to know if they are normal occurances, or if it is
a rarety to find these.
Thanks for your help
