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.
