Instax Mini 7s - Viewfinder Accuracy Issue by yokekei

Maybe you’ve noticed, maybe you haven’t yet, but lomographer has observed that the Instax Mini 7 exhibits a parallax error: what you see through the viewfinder is not the actual image that gets captured on film. This means your subjects appear off-center despite proper composition, which can be annoying. In her tipster above, yokekei explains this problem and shows us how we can solve this viewfinder accuracy problem.
