    Hi all, does anyone have any recommendations as to where I might get a Pentax Spotmeter V recalibrated in the UK? It's reading over by about 2/3 to 1 stop. Obviously I could just change film speed to correct but it's a bit annoying, and the error seems to depend on light level, lower light levels it seems ok, brighter and it's out. I'm quite fond of it and would rather get it fixed than just go for something newer.

    Not on that side of the pond, but Richard Ritter works on them this side, http://www.lg4mat.net for info.
    The Post from there to here takes 3-5 days usually, if that helps.

    Pentax have their own UK service centre. They are factory trained.

    Thanks Ian, I might give them a ring and see what they say.
