    Pentax 1/21 Degree Spot Meter

    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 ligh t to enable one to read the analogue scale in low light situations. Regards,
