Lately i bought a screen from ebay, and honestly speaking, it wasn't perfect but it is much better to focus with it by miles over my 2 Acute Matte screens i have, and it is cheap so it wasn't a waste of money, give it a try:
BTW the idea of interchangeable screens was not just to personalise to your preference, for ever, they can be swopped as conditions or lenses are changed, Often this is overlooked when a split image is criticised for black out with longer glass. That is when you swop screens. Doesn't make the split image not the best choice for some lenses.
It is a pity to have that RB/RZ focusing screens so much better than Hasselblad, i bought RZ and RB with WLV and the focusing screen they came with are so amazing and i never need to replace them, and so fast to focus, bright and 3D look, wish Hasselblad has doing the same.
I expect that the quality of the focusing system in the RB/RZ systems may also have something to do with the large mirror as well.
I am worry to buy that Beattie as all recommended and found out it is better but not by miles and then i will not feel happy or comfortable with it, i don't want to dump that much budget on just the screen and then it may not be about 70-100% better than the standard Hasselblad screens.
For now, i will keep using that split image screen until i can test that Beattie screen somewhere to see if it is much better then i buy it, i hope i can meet one of you here with that Beattie screen to test somewhere in the world and then i can decide.
That's completely understandable. If you lived in St. Louis I would let you try out my Hasselblad with the Beattie.
Is that Beattie screen the whole area is clear and/or transparent or it is Matte and only in the center circle one is only clear transparent one?
On mine it is slightly Matte. The circle is clear with a horizontal line through it that you line up when it is focussed.
