Honeywell Visimatic 615 Question

I got this Honeywell Visimatic 615 yesterday.
Can anyone tell me what the silver button is next to the sync terminal ?
I can't seem to find a manual for it...anyone know where to find one?
Any info would be appreciated.

I can't say with any certainty what the function of the button is, but there are two functions that were common on cameras of this class from this era:
  1. Battery check - it would likely light one of the meter light or one on the outside (white rectangle next to the eyepiece?).
  2. Back light compensation - would cause the metering system to increase the exposure by ~1.5-2 stops.
I did find out that this is a rebadged Petri Computor 35.
