Actually, my detailed description made it sound much more complicated
than it is.  Here is a more true-to-life description.

1.  Point meter at subject.
2.  Press button
3.  Read exposure on LCD display

And for contrast measurement

1. Point meter at subject.
2. Hold button
3. Point meter at highlight, then shadow
4. Release button
5. Read exposure on numeric display, contrast range on f-stop "bar

And if you don't like the displayed shutter/f combination, press up or
down arrow buttons to raise or lower shutter speed.  Other readings
adjust to match.

The whole measuring process is actually faster than measuring with a
TTL-meter camera, although you then have to transfer the reading to the
camera, as with any separate meter.  It's certainly faster than using a
CdS-cell hand meter.
