67 TTL prism meters to 4 seconds?

First off, greetings to all members - I'm new to the forums and have learned a lot already.

I was looking through the 67 TTL manual today and noticed the Light Measurement Range chart shows you can measure down to 4 seconds, but need to use B to actually expose for that long. I was recently in Sedona, AZ and could have used that for some longer exposures of a river I was photographing with EFKE 25 film. I just tried it out, and sure enough, the B setting seems to meter at 2 seconds, and the X speed meters at 4 seconds. I wish I would have figured this out when I got the camera.

Wow, neat! I always wondered why the B setting worked in the meter, which didn't make sense. Thanks for the tip!
