Re: Eclair ACL internal light meter

That's the idea, but you'd better match it to the meter reading of a
well-lit gray card filling the frame.  Then learn when to ignore it as
the scene content changes but the lighting doesn't (when someone in a
white uniform walks into frame you'll get a big spike on your reading,

On a related note, how exactly do I set the internal meter? Do I just

take a reading with my handheld meter and then match this to the internal meter by adjusting the camera until I have the middle diode
