My camera will measure in meters (Contax G2) but I'm just looking for pointers to think metric.

I've some great pointers above too!
When you are using a camera that gives both meters and feet, say an slr, pay attention to the meters scale and some object you are familiar with, so you know what that object looks like at that distance. You'll make the shift easier than you might think. Did you know that the metric system has been legal for trade in the U.S. since 1866?
