Cinematography or photography is all about the control of light to meet an expressive end. Everything needs to be examined and considered, unless you are doing bottom shelf 'run and gun' work with no concern for quality.

Thanks for letting me know, but with over 40 years of experience on tv broadcast shooting film and video, international award winning documentaries, and feature films which have had Academy Award nominations, I think I'd already figured that out.

Robin says he was looking for a quicker method when using his 7D as a B camera shooting interviews. I used to use the grey card method when I was also doing stills back in the 1970's it's very accurate if placed so a reading can be taken at the position of most important exposure. I own six light meters, very useful but often there's no time to run around the set taking spot reading whilst the director, interviewer and interviewee wait, so not really under those circumstances the right tool for the job.
