Gossen Scout exposure meter

The Gossen Scout is a very light weight and easy to handle exposure meter manufactured by Gossen. It is actually a simple meter based on a selenium photo cell.
The shutter speed ranges from 1/1000 sec to 15 sec. And the aperture value ranges from f/ 2 to f/ 22. The adjustable film sensitivity ranges from 12 to 1600 ASA or 12 to 33 DIN.
The meter has a diffuser blind which can be placed in front of the metering cell to enable the meter to measure incident light. Without the blind in front of the cell the meter is to be used for measuring reflected light.
The Gossen Scout is made for the US market and and is also known as the Gossen Bisix.

The Gossen Scout is made in two types. On the picture on the left, one can see that the box and the meter actually not belong together. The picture on the box is the Scout type I and the meter itself is the Scout type II.
