I've got one of his DVDs on lighting.
yes, I'd completely forgotten about that mode as I only ever used it the first time I got the meter & have never used it since, it's not that helpful unless you have someone either hold the meter for you (the model could) or you have someone to fire the flashes for you, or you have really long arms.
I suppose you could use a cheaper radio trigger attached to the lights & fire them from the transmitter in your hand as you meter the light & then put the transmitter back on the camera to take the shot.
It's less complicated doing it either with the cable or the wireless transmitter module, but of course you have to pay extra for that.
BTW Mark, I'm no expert in studio lighting or strobist techniques at all, am still learning! Unfortunately, a lack of willing models means I don't get to do studio stuff as often as I'd like.
