Description

The Nikon 6X focusing finder DW-2 provides precise focusing and right-angle viewing for F2 users, along with the advantages of a distortion-free image and higher magnification covering the entire field; thus, the DW-2 proves invaluable for application such as photomicrography, close-ups or other situations where critical focusing is required.

Critical focusing of the aerial image is performed with the DW-2 via the parallax focusing technique. the photographer focuses his or her eye with the cross-hair on the clear screen, etc. (the Type C and M screens prove excellent for this) and then focuses object image via the camera lens or by means of bellows as normal; then, to verify critical focusing, the photographer shifts his eye (either right/left or up/down) and, if image shift is noted, re-adjusts the image focus until the image does not shift from the crossline. The DW-2 is also provided with an adjustment mechanism permitting continuous eyesight correction of from +3 to –5 dioptres; the index dot and reference line permit alignment for the standard -1 dioptre setting (i.e. the image appears as though viewed at a distance of 1m) as most comfortable for viewing. Note that this finder can also be used with Nikon F camera bodies; simply remove the screws securing the finder nameplate in place, slip off the nameplate and mount the finder on the camera in the normal way.

Please note that the following important points when you see our grading description. When applied to lenses it means that the optics are in perfect condition. What we are describing is the cosmetic condition of the lens barrel. When it applies to cameras, motor drives, speedlights etc. the understanding is that the item is in perfect working order and the description would mean the exterior appearance. In other words we are judging cosmetic appearance.
