and the old (uncoupled in your case) selenium cell exposure meters did a fair job. Most mfg had earlier cameras with this type of meter. I guess the number is some EV equivalent and you could work up a hand card to dial in the exposure, but yes, it's miles away from the convenience of today.
BTW, nice hood on the shooting lens, does it help?
