Pentax Spotmeter V Battery Replacement : LUSENET : Large format photography : One Thread

A quick question - I ought to be able to find the answer easily but have so far been frustrated. What battery should I replace the G13 batteries in a Spotmeter V with ?

Funny you should ask...I just got a used Pentax V a few days ago. Mine has three "A76" batteries in a stack. They are working fine.

Also, see my post from yesterday about same meter; a nice link to a free copy of the user manual.

I recently purchased one of these too. I replaced the battery with one suggested by my local camera store, I think a duracell, # 640A. The meter seems to be working fine. I also think that I will need to clean the "L' switch with some contact cleaner as it seems a tiny bit erratic when this button is barely touched, suggesting dirty contacts. Tim
