    Jim, thanks from me too. That is a great idea that seems obvious now that I hear it.

    I sometimes just hold my hand above the camera thus casting a shade onto the pinhole, but staying out of the angle of view.

    Me too, and it made me laugh to think of what it did to me a couple months ago. I made a darkroom print using a homemade easel and there was a funny dark area in the upper corner of the print. I spent a lot of time trying to figure out what caused it ( filter ring, easel, homemade negative carrier, what could it be?... ) and finally looked at the negative and saw that it was in there the frame. Then at last I looked in my notebook and it said I was worried about flare and had made a second picture shading the lens with my hand!

    When I purchased the Ilford Harman-Titan pinhole camera it came with an exposure calculator.
    I colour copied this and laminated the thing, then cut the pieces out and put it together with a type of cutter pin.
    Works great.
    But, if possible and available, I like to start the metering with one of my Sekonics and then extrapolate.

    This is what I did.
    Thanks.

    An other simple solution: I use the Pocket Light Meter app on my iPhone (also available for android). This app has a minimal ISO setting of 0.8 and maximum aperture of f/512 so very usefull for pinhole photography. It is very accurate too (I tested it). The app is free (with small add in top of screen) or $1.00 add free.
    See: http://www.pocketlightmeter.com/

    You can HOLD the screen - holding your last reading. You can also take a small snapshot to log the used settings - and add some notes. It can also sync with Dropbox to save the snapshots. Coming back home I check the snapshots to see what settings I used when & where: the file names show date & time stamp. Here is an example:
