    exposure meter = point at subject- tells you how to set the camera

    Or if you have a few more words, some meters are used by pointing at the camera.

    Point meter. Push button. Look at dials. Scratch head. Look confused.

    I'm calling shenanigans on this one. You used "=" to replace the word "equals" so I'm counting 13 words.

    Haha I'm just messing around. I'm a big fan of your threads... they always seem to get some good discussion. So to show some support

    Exposure meter translates to expensive tripod.

    Did you know that exposure meter used to be in words. It was a book or booklet that gave situational exposure advice. Ie... one heading might be cloudy sub heading light clouds dark clouds ect. Then subject light colored subject dark colored. ect. You could look up the almost exact situation on the chart (depending on how good the chart was) to get the exposure.

    Imagine that: if it were comprehensive enough, you could carry your palm pilot and would't need a light meter at all.

    Just punch in: 34year old woman in yellow dress ,,,medium skintone brown hair lit by sunshine at 11am on june 3rd.. shadow from a 1999 ford van across her face ect ect ect. You't get the ideal setting down to the thousanth f stop.

    The reason a thread I start gets discussion is because I'm always wrong, but it takes ten people to explain all the various ways im wrong... LOL
