    Hey. Strange request here, and I don't really know how to phrase it...

    I am looking for a real photographic capture of a focusing screen type situation...
    Such as West Photos logo:
    [​IMG]

    I have scoured google but can't seem to find one. I tried searching all kinds of terms like "SLR focusing" "SLR focus screen" "Focusing viewfinder" etc...

    Any one have any ideas of better search terms? Or where an image is?

    I am going to try to replicate it in illustrator and want a bonafide image to work off of...

    Thanks!

    www.focusingscreen.com is where I bought my split-image / micro-prism focusing screen. This pages shows differences among many different types of split-image / micro-prism focusing screens.
    Hope this helps :)

    Try doing a search for "split prism focusing screen" that should help you get the results you want.

    The reason your search results aren'r coming up with anything is that most DSLR's don't have a split prism. In fact, I can't think of a single digital camera that has one my default.
