    Matt, there use to be a wonderful Bronica website set up by Sam Sherman, but alas it apparently is no longer.
    Maybe someone would have the ability to resurrect it.

    Well, although I have not heard back from Jimmy Koh (which is not surprise given the terrible effect of Sandy), I have obtained Tony Hilton's Bronica book, The early history of Bronica, and his book states that the EC light meter takes a 6 volt battery, e.g., PX28LB 6V Lithium Battery, so apparently the early models of the EC light meter use only 3 volts (as stated in Bronica's EC light meter manual and other sources), the "newer" versions take 6 volts. Hope this helps future users of the Bronica system. Jon

    Just received the expert's response, i.e., Jimmy Koh, "Bronica made two types TTL light meter, older type using two 1.5 volt battery, newer type using one 6 volt px28 battery same as camera body battery." I am amazed at is FAST reply to my email, especially given Hurricane Sandy and its continuing aftermath.
    Jimmy Koh definitely has my future business on my Bronica Cameras. Jon

    Koh's Camera is great.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
