Although the PEN F has a swivel display, there are moments, where an angle finder would come in handy. The camera lacks an accessory port, so the electronic finders can’t be attached.
The old and sturdy VA-1, a relict from FT times, provides a good solution to this problem. It may be mounted to the PEN F using a small custom adaptor plate. I recently got measurements of the PEN F finder and designed a plate to mount the VA-1 to the camera. It slides into the hold of the VA-1 like all the other adaptors before.
A first 3D printed prototype worked as expected. It showed, that the shape of the plate may be printed on filament printers. There’s no need for expensive casting. The adaptor plate will be available as long as I am able to print it on my 3D printer.
The adaptor replaces the ones shipped with the VA-1. It won’t work with other angle finders without modification. Since the basic shape is easily printed and there’s no need for a mold, modifications may be done on request.
