Hi,

Can't find this covered on the camera manual...

I've just purchased a R3M and I can only get a meter reading if the camera is cocked (film advanced). Is this the normal behaviour? I find it cumbersome, prone to unintentional exposures and causing pressure on shutter trigger.

Hope some can clear, thanks!
 
There's a switch under the base plate that gets closed when you cock the shutter. You could bridge the switch out if you want the meter always on.
