Gossen-Bolex Light Meter?

Post by mr_x » Thu Feb 23, 2017 2:40 am

HI,

Have a Gossen-Bolex Light Meter but no manual. I also notice that the DIN / ASA values seem to be upside down and showing in the wrong windows! :-o

Any clues as to the correct usage of this meter please? All the dials seem to move at once on lifting and rotating the external black plastic ring, with very little control over individual movements.

There was an article and picture here - on this meter the film speed numbers are showing correctly.

Many thanks.

Hello mr_x, here I spoke precisely of the problem of the upside down values :)

Thanks 7OSE9,

So how do you get the numbers the right way up please?

Turning the dial either way just takes you through the double sequence - upside down.

Ric, I think you can't turn the ring in the right way because you have the old model of Gossen Bolex (it should be out two models, slightly different).
If you send me your email in PM, I send to you the user manual, it's easier to read right there that explain with my words. :)
