Burn mark in viewfinder
Burn mark in viewfinder
by Ryan Turner on May 29, 2009 at 11:45:24 pm

I just borrowed a Panasonic HVX and when I look into the viewfinder there is a burn mark. Looks like a small smokey burn in the center of the viewfinder. Does anyone know what causes this or is there a fix?

Thanks
Ryan

Sounds like the viewfinder was pointed toward the sun for a period of time.

Think of it as a magnifying glass. All viewfinders have a warning.

Thanks for the response!!!

I'm guessing it wouldn't be covered by warranty. Is it possible to replace the viewfinder? Or to repair it?

Definitely NOT covered under warranty.

They do make a eye cover that closes when you eye is not pressed against the viewfinder. Its ok, but saves you $%# when you have a sony 10k color vf.
