Sunometer was made to be used with Bell&Howell's 8mm movie cameras. It was first manufactured in 1952, and there are two colors: this dark brown and a lighter reddish brown. Some models have a red button on top. It is used to freeze the needle to keep the latest measurement. Mine does not have it. This is a very small meter that can be attached on the top of the camera. It was compatible at least with the One-nine -models and Sun-dial series in 1950's. In late 50's Bell&Howell introduced 8mm cameras with fully automatic exposure control, called Electric-Eye.

This comes from Blackburn, Lancashire in excellent condition.
