FEB ARTICLE: How to Make a Rangefinder for Minox cameras.

Discussion in 'Minox' started by mtc photography, Feb 1, 1999.

  1. The human eyes have a baseline about 80mm
    Leica M6 rangefinder baseline =40mm
    CONTAX T rangefinder baseline =15mm

    Hence human eye rangefinder is twice as accurate as

    Leica M6, and more than 5 times as accurate as

    Contax T

    Years ago I found this and keep a copy in my bag just in case: card rangefinder.jpg

    Using the Walther Zapp method, one might instead extend the original measuring chain.

    Admittedly, having 10 yards of metal chain with bumps every yard might cancel the advantages of carrying a very small camera, but one should be grateful that it is not extended to infinity.

    The purveyors could always use the standard excuse of high tech inconvenient innovation.... "It is designed to improve user experience".
