Last week I taking some flower closeups. They were somewhat high so I said, "Right, let's break out the tripod and step stool." After getting everything together, I said "Hey, let's use the 'new' DR-3 right angle finder." So there I was, holding the finder, removing the rubber eye cup when, it happened...
The DR-3 squirmed out of my hand, much like my seven month son when his gums hurt, and then committed suicide and jumped five and half feet onto the concrete walk. After recovering, I checked it and it "seemed" okay. I checked it again last night and heard a slight noise inside. I think the prism may be broken. I know it has a small chip in a corner.
Oh well, I'm going to bring it in for service, may be it can be fixed. Maybe I'll just deal with it as is.
