  1. Hi everyone, Long time lurker, first time poster. I've had this problem with my viewfinder since i've had my Vx1000. Is it a viewfinder ribbon cable issue? I've got these weird lines that only pop up if the viewfinder is tilted upright. It also makes the exposure etc seem like it's a bit over exposed when it's in fact set perfectly. Snapped back down in position it works fine and colour etc are perfect. All the lines disappear. I don't mind for the time being, it just makes filming with the mk1 a little harder at times. I've attached pictures. First one has the lines. Second is normal. Sorry about the quality.
  2. Hi guys can anyone help me with this problem. So I replaced my ribbon cable and when i look into the view finder the colours aren't really fixed. But before i installed the new ribbon cable it was all black and you couldn't see anything except the exposure setings etc.So what could be the problem the view finder itself or is it something else? how it looks when you point it outsideand here is how it looks inside
  3. I know that there are a lot of video explaning Sony vx1000 viewfinder repair, but none of them had precised how to install the new ribbon cable You can find these on Ebay, from USA or Canada for 20$. Be sure to know that these cable had been modified to fit correctly on the vx. DESCRIPTIVE PICTURE I advice you to download the picture in order to zoom and see details. This technique works for new ribbon cable (Ebay). To remove / detach the viewfinder properly , you must remove the left and right sides of the camcorder, and remember to remove the screws located in the opening tape. Pictured 5 shows that the ribbon cable is following the cutting edge of the viewfinder. If done correctly , with taking care to observe , the ribbon cable should have enough slack so that it fits gently and does not twist when you lift the viewfinder. The french explanation is here Message me if problems VX1000 rules

    Wtb Small Size Vx1000 Eye Piece

    anybody have one they're tryna sell?
  5. ever since yesterday, my vx has been having this problem where the viewfinder is all black and doesn't work, but when i tilt the viewfinder down (so that it's pointing horizontal) i can get it to turn on and work sometimes, only to have it shut off when i tilt the viewfinder up again i'm assuming the ribbon cable is messed up in some way, but before i take it all apart i thought it'd be a good idea to check with people who know better than me first ahaha so, if any of you have any suggestions or ideas as to whats wrong with my camera its much appreciated
  6. Everything about the camera works, but when I use the viewfinder its nothing but a white screen? I know not many people use a GL1, but if anyone knows about this, let me know please.

    Vhs Camera Question

    Hi SP, I got a VHS camera this summer from my mom's old office. My mom said she remembers it shooting in color, but when I look and film through the viewfinder it's only black and white. So my question is, do you know if the viewfinder is in B&W if the footy will be in B&W or will it come out in color? I've never had a VHS, so if anyone has any experience, let me know. Thanks

    Yo, i got 2 choices for viewfinders for my brionica s2. 1: waist level finder - http://www.ebay.com/itm/Bronica-S-S2-waist-level-finder-Used-6X6-/380447011291?pt=US_Viewfinders_Eyecups&hash=item589468b1db 2: Chimney finder- http://www.ebay.com/itm/ZENZA-BRONICA-S2-FOCUSING-HOOD-FINDER-W-CASE-/171045759183?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item27d31f28cf Both are $99 and im wondering which one would be a better buy Thanks.
  9. I'm sure this has been covered, but I couldn't find it. So today I turned on my vx1000 and looked through the viewfinder. The viewfinder is fully lit up but it looks out of focus. I can zoom and see it focusing, but nothing will focus not even the blue bar. Some one help please, I just bought my Vx and would like to know what's wrong. Thanks in advance.

    What's Wrong?

    So I was at my local park the other day, and I filmed a trick or two with my vx2000. But maybe half an hour after that I took my cam out of my bag and the viewfinder was sagging a bit down. When I went to investigate this, I found I could wiggle the viewfinder up and down slightly. I thought I could have set my bag down too hard so I turned the cam around in my bag and went to a spot. When I went to film a trick at this spot I fount the viewfinder was completely detached! When I got home I found there was a button that could lock the back half back on but it is still sagging like before. Is there a plastic piece in the top part of the viewfinder that holds it in place that could be broken? I don't know what to do or how much this might cost to fix so any help is appreciated.
  11. So yeah, thats my viewfinder. Its not a shitty picture, thats just actually what it looks like. Everythings real dark and i think the image is in negative. Doesnt even give me an image really, this is what it would look like in broad daylight. Came out of nowhere. Filmed a trick with the LCD screen and when i was putting the camera back in in the bag, i checked the viewfinder and i was bummed out with what I saw. Kerry decide my fate

    Mamiya 1000s Metered Prism

    Does anyone know the differences between the PD and CdS Prisms for the Mamiya 1000s? And what would be the better one for shooting with a 500mm? I know the CdS meters through the lens but i don't know how the PD works and whats better for my needs.
  13. Hit me up with offers. Good condition. I also have a tamrac Expedition 7 for sale and possibly trade....Both work, and look like new theres nothing to complain about.
  14. If you ever playback a Vx1000 and you want your friends to see it. What I do is take out my phone, put it on camera mode, and stick it in the viewfinder. Now you don't have to crowd around the viewfinder! Just thought I'd share a tip.
  15. Need one for a homie. Let me know if you have one with your asking price.
