Check out JOBO's web site. I think (last time I looked) they have manuals on-line in .pdf format.

I use the ColorStar 3000. I find it indispensable for color work, and *very* useful for black and white. Indispensable, but exactly like any exposure meter, it is not a perfect, automatic system - it requires thought and a little human intelligence.

It does allow tracking of results, and feedback into cause-and-effect. Without it, I'd be bouncing around all over the place.
