Main Features

With a slim form designed with a focus on integrating well with the camera...

With a slim form designed with a focus on integrating well with the camera, the meter body has a low profile just 13mm tall (excluding protrusions). Its shape was created to be well balanced even when mounted on a classic camera. The upper and lower covers are made from lightweight extremely rigid aluminum die-cast finished with a quality texture.

Easy-to-read intuitively operable fixed-point matching 3 point LED display.

Easy-to-read intuitively operable fixed-point matching 3 point LED display. Can be used in either aperture priority or shutter speed priority mode. To take a reading, press the meter button and then rotate either of the dials until the green LED lights up. Then set the aperture and shutter speed values on the camera.

It is possible to immediately decide on an aperture and shutter speed combination because combinations of aperture and shutter speed for correct exposure are indicated by five lines in between the two dials. So you can instantly read the right combination to suit your photographic expression.

The meter is equipped with a metered value hold function.

The meter is equipped with a metered value hold function. Press the button to meter and release the button to hold the metered value. You can accurately meter your subject while observing it through the viewfinder. The LED display turns off 8 seconds after the last dial operation but the memory recall function retains the metered value for a further 30 seconds and displays it again if a dial is operated.

Usable even in low light, the meter’s metering performance enables readings to be taken starting from EV 1.

Usable even in low light, the meter’s metering performance enables readings to be taken starting from EV 1. Indoors or at night, when you are unable to use a flash this meter is a strong ally for capturing images with available light and utilizing the intended character of your lens. The mounting position of the meter’s shoe can be changed by removed the mounting screws using a small screwdriver. The mount can be installed in either of two positions to suit the camera the meter is mounted on.
