Using a hybrid bistable optical device with a large photon shot noise, we have observed fluctuations and spontaneous transitions between the two states. The experimental results are compared with various discrete and exact models. Although the solution to the problem is not exact, good agreement is found with all the approximate models if one allows the counting rates to be adjustable.
