The Pentax Spot Meter V is a classic ambient one degree spot meter. The subject area covered by the one degree metering angle is indicated by a small circle in the pentaprism viewfinder. The sensitive silicon photo diode and extra bright pentaprism offer exceptional performance even in low light levels while the linear meter scale in the viewfinder makes needle deflections and EV readings easy to read. The meter also features a built-in -1 to 0 adjustable diopter. The push button meter switch ensures that the batteries are not consumed unnecessarily.
