Has anyone ever seen the accessory in the image attached? What is it?
Looks like a meter to me, that'd be my guess.
it was the light meter ...
How did it work? My Pen F doesn't have anything like that.
exactly , a light meter.
There is a circular hood at behind of thingy , I think gets light from there , I think top , there is a gear for adjustments and finding the exposure.
A light meter. You can see the f/scale at an angle.
I would geuss a light meter also.
It looks like it mounts to the shutter speed dial. Does anyone know if it's an Olympus accessory and what it was called? I still don't understand how it works; it looks like it couples to the shutter speed dial somehow.
Better Sense ,
It is called VCII meter for Pen F.
Search the name and you will find many discussions.
45 dollars or more.
It was probably discontinued when the Pen FT came out with a built-in light meter.
there is a post or 2 about it on flickr
the thread explains how to install it ...
it doesn't work with the FT just the F .. ( they say FT has a different shutter dial ).
1967 where are you?
There's a two eared mount around the SS dial, it just clicks in place.
You can see the lens for the CDS cell on the front of the meter, the smaller round thingy o top in the picture
It read from the top like the real old Pentax clip on meter.
