Question About the 35mm Mitchell Side Finder

I would appreciate knowing how far to the left or right of center the side finder's vertical cross hair could be moved. Thank you for sharing this information.

In Both the 16mm and the 35mm finders the ribbons go edge to edge from center in horizontal and vertical.

Ed, Thanks for the reply. Are the ribbons the same as cross hairs?

No. Crosshairs are engraved on the center of the finder ground glass. The adjustable framing ribbon are different.
