    Minolta Booster II - Manual Needed

    I just acquired a Minolta Auto Meter IV F with the Booster II attachment from KEH and, while i have the manual for the meter itself (thank you butkus.org!), i can't seem to locate the manual for the booster. I've found instructions both here and on the large format board regarding calibrating the booster for ground glass, however, i'm not entirely certain which attachment is the gg attachment (i could just be an idiot ... always a possibility).

    I don't suppose any of you fine folks have a copy of the manual scanned that i might acquire? or at least the page describing the various attachments and their use?

    Thanks in advance
    -Nick

    The GG attachment is the thing with the little plastic disc on the end. The other attachments are for viewing through the viewfinder of a 35mm SLR and I think one is a microscope attachment. At some point I wrote up some instructions here or on the LF forum, so you may be referring to one of my posts over there. You used to be able to contact Minolta, and they would send you an instruction manual or a copy for a nominal fee. You could try the Konica-Minolta site and see if there is a contact for that kind of thing. If not, I'll hunt around and see if I can find my copy and scan it. As I recall, it's all on one large oversized sheet.

    Welcome to APUG Nick!

    I'm somewhat amused that you found one and not the other

    d'oh! ... i scoured the thing ... must've been looking in the wrong section or somesuch ... sigh

    Thanks for the rapid responses though. I'm a recent convert to the wonders of film shooting and was just playing around with Big Speedy and my new meter (anniversary speed graphic ... shooting fuji instants in a polaroid 405) so i'm eager to play around with some macro-type stuff with that booster 'n such (soon as i get more film)

    Anywho ... thanks
