Pocket Spot




Here is the Pocket Spot in the rare red model. Most units are all black with white laser scribed writing and red LED display. Single LEDs on display indicate 1/3 and 2/3 addition EVs. The meter is 2.25" long and a little wider than 2". Body is 3/4" thick and the dials adds 1/8". Finish is black anodized over a solid block of machined aluminum. It weighs 4 1/8 oz (117 grams) with strap and battery, both included. EV range is -1 2/3 to 23 at 100 ASA. Spectral sensitivity is compensated for "typical" B&W film. Angle of view is approximately 1 degree. Viewing is by bore-sighting through the hole the length of the chassis. Battery is the 6V PX28.
