Arri Sr3 Advanced Viewfinder Reflections


Recommended Posts

Hello everyone! 

Is it normal for an an Sr3 advanced viewfinder to reflect this much light back into the eyepiece?  i am seeing a double image all the time. I know some "stray" light is normal along the edges of the viewfinder but this much?  

i removed the whole viewfinder system and  and it still does it even when just pointing the viewfinder tube at a light source. Would love to know what you all think. Scoured the internet for answers to no avail.

I had this problem when I got mine. IIRC the problem was a damaged prisim inside the viewfinder near the beam splitter. Jorge at Cinematechnic sourced the replacement part and fixed it. you could reach out to him and ask about it. Hes sometimes on this forum too

Ended up pulling out the pentaprism myself. It does have some "wear" inside but no physical damage. Reached out to Jorge Amador. 


Thank for your reply Robin Phillips
