Interesting observation Mark. I have to admit that I
work this way with my Hasselblad and rarely have
exposure problems.  Most of the time the light is
pretty consistent (maybe one reading for sun, one for
shade)...particularly with a SWC where everything from
about 2 feet to infinity is already in
just point and shoot. 

I'm going to try an experiment. I'll shoot with two
M6's next time, one with the battery in, and one
out...I'd like to get a feel for how distracting the
red lights are.
