The FT was stopped-down TTL metering. The FTb was full aperture metering. Both used a semi-silvered central rectangle that was 12% of the frame to pass light to the meter. I used FTb's for six years and loved them. A solid and reliable camera. The later FTb, sometimes designated with an N, had exposure setting info in the finder, in addition to the match needle meter.
