  1. Hi guys,
    I have a question, how do you read and use this meter? I read the manual and its confusing me like crazy. Can you guys tell me how can read and test its accuracy without me getting a headache in the process. Thanks

  3. First, select either high or low range (it will flip between 2 index needles). Then push the button on the side to take a reading. The reading will lock when you release the button. Now turn the dial until the big center index needle lines up with the meter needle. Now you just read the speed/aperture combinations off of the dial.
    If the needle goes off scale, change to the other range and repeat.
