    Any idea what this little piece of mysterious device is?

    I bought a Mamiya RZ67 on eBay and it came in a bag with a lot of accessories. I found this little thing in the front compartment together with a Gossen light meter. I'm assuming that it is something for calculating distance or exposure? But does anyone know what this is or how it works?

    It says Germany (West) on both the case and the device itself.

    Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

    I was thinking 'external rangefinder', but given that it says 'Gossen' and '7.5 degrees' on it, more than likely a spot meter (or attachment for one).
    An awful lot of electrons were terribly inconvenienced in the making of this post.

    f/64 and be there.

    For Lunasix 3, Lunasix 3S, Lunalite, Lunasix F, Profisix and Mastersix

    Switchable between 15° and 7.5°.


    Actually your grey version belongs to the Lunasix 3 in its grey outer. But that would be cosmetics only.
    Later models of that attachment were black, apt for the later black meters.


    Keep in mind to set the appropriate corrective setting at the meter!

    "Pro" is US name; "six" is EU name. Same meters.

    You attach it to the front of the meter, switch it between green (7.5 degree) and red (15 degree ??) Settings and then look down through the top viewer and position the appropriate circle on the part of the subject you want to meter from.

    Then take your reading, and read it using the same coloured arrow on the meter.

    The real advantage of this, IMHO, is that it permits yu to be certain about what area you are metering from (without requiring a full blown 1 degree spot).

    Canada and most of the rest of the world got the non-USA models as well.
