Viewfinder is stowed in chest bag, to right of radio. Viewfinder is clipped onto safetyglasses when countdown is initiated. At other times it stands facing upward inside the chest--mounted bag. Although the bag is intended as a "waist bag", here it is mounted at chest height so that the viewfinder image is easier to see when the viewfinder is not attached to the safetyglasses. In this detached mode, the apparatus works more like a hasselblad type camera (e.g. look down to see image). This keeps eyes unobstructed.
