I won this absolutely mint Minolta Spotmeter F in auction on eBay last week, it showed up in the mail yesterday.
Compared to what they go for if purchased from Japan, I got a really good deal.
Happy to report the meter is in fine working order.
I even managed to out-bid a few other folks and won it with only 5 seconds left. That can be tricky, as I’ve lost more than I’ve won using that particular strategy.
It came with a strap, a lens cap, and a case. All pristine. Happy to report the meter is in fine working order.
I was even able to download and print an English version of the manual from Michael Butkus’ Film Camera Manual Site.
Now I need to get Ansel Adams’ The Negative to complete my education on zone metering.
