So as I keep exploring my new camera I keep running into more minor questions (ah, the joy of lacking a manual)...

How do I remove the metal shade which pops up around the ground glass? I'd like to use a loupe to focus, but can't really with that thing in the way - I've found I tend to need a cloth over it to see anything anyway.

Thanks!

FWith the shade closed, look on the right and left sides, you'll find a metal tab, that when sprung slightly outside the shade pops off.
Another option is to by a Toyo loupe. These are 3.6X and are long enough to work with the shade open. compared to Other coated loupes this one is inexpensive and a very good item to have.
