Tips and Guidelines
-The Correction Slide 10° is used when the angle tilt is greater than 10° but less than 20°.
The Correction Slide 20° is used when the angle tilt is greater than 20°.
The Correction Slides and Acute Matte Screen are made of two layer resin and are easily damaged.
Wipe fingerprints off with a soft cloth.
Do not apply fluids or the resin layers will delaminate.
Insert the Correction Slides with the print showing.

When performing a backward tilt slide the screen in from the right.
-You can only remove the lens when the shutter is fully wound.
-The Stray Light Mask should be fitted at all times when the format mask is not fitted.

-If the Format Mask 4x5 cm is fitted correctly into the Focus Screen Adapter
you should be able to read the writing on the correction screens.
