Help me /p/
I keep posting in the rangefinder thread but its pretty much dead.
Basically I'm a poorfag and brought a FED 3 in very good condition.
The only thing out is the vertical alignment.
From reading around the internet I still cannot figure out how to do this, I have no problem with the horizontal alignment though.

TL;DR I am noob help me calibrate my FED 3

how bad is it?
I have a zorki where the vertical is off just very slightly and it's still perfectly usable. To calibrate the vertical on a zorki you need to take the top plates off and then adjust screws inside the camera.

Search flickr to figure out how to do this, i'm not sure.

if you don't have to do it, don't.

Its only the vertical and its not too bad so I can focus still, but its not easy.
From what I've read you need to take off a bezel off but I'm not sure if it's the front circle window or the viewfinder bezel.
Also I have no clue what to do after I take off the correct bezel.

>if you don't have to do it, don't.
probably the best idea, but I've heard its easy to do.

Looking at the front there is a circular viewfinder and a square framing viewfinder. Light enters these holes and is passed through small prismatic bits of glass at angles. These are adjustable and when correct give you the right look between h and v on the focus.
Unfortunately you need to take the top off the camera and for this you need tools. Then you need and infinity tube - camera techs have these - so that infinity can be set on the prismatic glasses. If infinity is correct then all other measurements will be correct. So it's a pro repair.
Other than that stick at f8 and most of what you shoot will be in focus anyway. Cheers
