Optical viewfinder

Just bopught a Ricoh 28mm viewfinder to use with my E-P1, but find it a little loose in the hot shoe.
Wondered if there was any advice as what is best to achieve a firm fit without damaging the hotshoe? Bluetack?

Re: Optical viewfinder

Place a layer of gaffer tape on the bottom of the viewfinder. That way when you take it off there will be no residue on the hot shoe if you go to use your flash.

Re: Optical viewfinder

Useful tip, thanks. My vf for the E-P2 isn't the tightest fit in the world.
