Minolta Auto Spot 1 Degree.

Cleaning the studio today, I uncovered this SRT-vintage Minolta Auto Spot 1 Degree. Works like new, kinda big and heavy but built like a tank, but WOW does it make a FUNKY noise when the dials oscillate. And as a meter it's deadly accurate.

The perfect compliment to my vintage incident-reading Minolta Autometer.

Need to run to the hardware store, and pick up another chrome metal snap ring, for the Autometer. Best way to carry these around, just clip and unclip to your beltloop. That's a trick I learned back in the 70's, from Bill Pierce, in Camera35 Magazine.
