Pentax 1/21 Degree Spot Meter : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

I recently acquired a Honeywell Pentax 1/21 Degree spot meter. It is in excellent shape, however I didn't receive a manual with it. I need t know how to tell if it is on high or low. also there is a white button on the side which seems to eleminate a filter in the viewfinder????What does this do??? also some figures on h exposure wheel I don't understand.........Some help here would be very much recieved..Thanks in advance.........Gary (-:

One buton is a battery check (The side white one?) The big button is the clicker, and the little button under the big button is the low light dash-board light. I got a little book, but it wasn't that usefull -- the dial speaks for itself. Maybe I have a differnt model though.

Gary, The white button on the left side of the hand grip activates the back light to enable one to read the analogue scale in low light situations. Regards,
