Thanks for the recognition Blue

Now that the SV dust is settling here in Portland, I am really curious as to what is coming next. PGillin is in Ft. Lauderdale (a place I've never been) and then it is on to the St. Louis crew. With any luck we can get a little inter-city rivalry going here.

I'm going to be getting it just in time, my Spottie is going in for a CLA. I'll be able to shoot un-interrupted now. Naturally, my rangefinder will be less than pleased, as, once again, it's not going to get the attention it deserves.

Look forward to your pictures from the Sunshine State.

It's surprisingly rainy and overcast this time of year. Never did understand why people call it the "sunshine state". Anyways, yea, I'm going to put at least a few rolls through it. I'm not great and sunny 16 yet, so some of my pictures might be way dark or way blown.

I received the camera today. I loaded up some fuji 800, and tomorrow I'm going to shoot. I've got some old marine vinyl, I might try and rig up a new case for the lightmeter. Speaking of, how do I use the light meter? I understand how to adjust the settings, but where should the needle be?
Anyways, sunny 16 is good enough for now, and ISO50 was easy to work with, and got the camera sent right out, wood box and all.

I thought that the meter manual was with the camera? If not, there is one online at:
Sekonic Leader De Luxe L-8 manual, user manual, free instruction manual, pdf manuals
or here:
Hey ladies - it's the Hanimex light meter! - a set on Flickr
Be aware that low light sensitivity is really poor with the little Sekonic.

I didn't see the manual in the box, but I can go look.
Anyway, I figured out the meter, and tomorrow I'm going to shoot with it.

I didn't received the manual for the light meter, the only manual comes with was for the SV and it was included with the package.

I am probably mistaken.

Yea, I wasn't accusing anyone of pinching the manual, I just didn't receive it. The SV manual is impressive. The sight-seer has clearly been well maintained and cared for.
I'm going to throw in a filter or two and, (hopefully) a new meter case, as my contribution. It might not be as good as a lens or strap, but I feel like I should give something back, considering all I've gotten out of the forums.

No Steve, quite right. I did print it out from the online source that you found, but it was not an original, and the online will suffice.

woof!
