    For my Mamiya 645 Super and 645 Pro and my leaf shutter lens, I set the camera shutter to 1/8, the lens shutter to whatever speed is appropriate, and the stop down metering switch on the lens (the "A-M" switch) to A.

    If you don't want to use the leaf shutter for a particular shot, set the shutter speed indicator on the lens to "F", and the shutter speed indicator on the camera to whatever speed is appropriate.

    The regular shutter release on the camera is the one you use - you just have to remember to cock the shutter on the lens each time.

    On my cameras, the camera's battery powers the meter in the metering prism. If I recall correctly, I believe it is the same for yours.

    You are correct about the X synch on the lens - as long as you are using the leaf shutter, that is where you attach the flash.

    I'm assuming you have the manual. If not, here is the link to the pdf on Mamiya's site:

    Congratulations - enjoy yourself!

    I just won a couple of ebay auctions, one for another Gossen, a Luna Pro F ($29 shipped!), so I can take flash and/or fill flash readings and just use a 9v battery and the other for a weird old german set of bellows called Seymour's Multiscope, which I will endeavor to frankenstein into a working tilt/shift setup that will work on either the 645 1000s or my Canon AE-1 (obviously I'm going to shoot for the 645 first and I will need some extra body and lens back caps and some scratch paper)...

    The seller of the Luna Pro F I bought for $22 + shipping sent me a message saying that we each are given our time to steal something from ebay and that this was my time, congratulations... Kinda funny. But serious great deal on a "backup" meter... i shoulda gotten the "F" in the first place, no battery adaptors or any weirdness like that!

    First off, a 1000s is not a beast, a rb67 is a beast. The x sync is exactly what it sounds like. Hook it up using a pc cable to your 283 and shoot away... at any speed. The meter runs off camera battery. Those lens are nice. No other advice as far as leaf shutters. My lens for the 1000s don't have them and I am not sure if I will every really need one. Of course, my rb lens are all leaf shutters.
    Good luck.
