    Kaiser focusing magnifier with exposure meter - Need Help

    Hi everyone,

    Recently I bought a focusing magnifier with exposure meter "Photoscop" but it didn't had a manual and I can figure out how it works. I've searched the web with no luck, the only one that pops up it's the Kaiser Focuscop. Does anyone know how to use it? It has a light sensor in the middle of the focusing screen. I've added 2 photos.
    Thanks in advance.

    This item circa 1979, known as Kaiser 'Photoscop 4006', if would help in your search for information.

    If it's like other meters you need to make a good print and calibrate the meter to it. Once you have that, you find a similar area in the new negative and adjust your aperture or time to null the needle.
    Have you tried google translate to decipher the German text?
    Ilford has the EM-10 and you might find the sheet for that online & use it as a guide.
