Unlike it's counterparts, the LX is fully functional even with the prism removed.
You should add a Topcon RE Super to your collection, which the lightmeter is functional without a viewfinder (albeit, through a very hard to see window to the left of the focusing screen).

If the op still needs help, I would recommend a small mechanical self timer, I find them all the time at a local camera shop at an antique mall, this one cost me 2 bucks. It threads right into the shutter button of the LX.

I have had one of those for probably 30 years (for the K1000). I think Iíve used it twice

But it was handy both times...

When I shot that image, I had not yet acquired any Topcons but have since rectified that shortcoming . . .



The Super D's meter is on the chassis as well as in the viewfinder as you pointed out.
