    If you forget sunny 16, you can always get a tattoo: http://www.flickr.com/photos/aaronpiazza/5345278610/
    put it on a shirt: http://www.flickr.com/photos/spidermac/3551071869/
    or glue it to the back of the camera: http://www.flickr.com/groups/sunny16...57603720484762 (I love this personal anecdote of a 14 year old being told to stay away from bad whiskey and loose women, and the shitty weather sunny 16 rules).

    Yeah I was being silly. I did compare the Weston meter to my digital camera, and in fact it was useful in two ways. Getting used to an in-camera meter takes a while for me... and I'd already done that for my digital, so seeing how to get to a similar reading is a big step. Secondly, the "spot meter" option on my digital was useful to get a feel for the angle of view of the meter.

    Also, I guess it wouldn't completely be against the spirit of APUG if you carried a small digital camera to use as a light meter!

    It's a digital camera with a 1 pixel sensor!

    Except for the fact that digicams are not calibrated to ISO standards, but an arbitrary standard that varies by manufacturer.
    Used top quality lightmeters are cheap and neccesary. Get one and learn to use it, you'll be very glad you did.

    Yes, older light meters are fun to work with. I picked up one for $30, Gossen Luna Pro. The light meter tells you all possible exposure settings under a specific lighting condition. That's just so cool. I don't have a PS digital camera for metering. I don't want to carry my DSLR just to meter the scene.

    For many of us on APUG, a Luna Pro doesn't qualify as "older", but rather as "middle-aged" .

    Hell, the LunaPros are my "new' meters!

    I'm on your side... mine recently died and I'm either going to get it fixed or get a new one!

    And a lot easier to carry around.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
