scenarios for metering is: drag your D7000 around to meter, smart phone light meter app, or buy a cheap used light meter on KEH/ebay/wherever
the most convenient is to have a meter built into the camera you are using and i can say while it doesnt compare because i dont know the cameras you have but the meter built into my XD11 is pretty decent. it is like sort of center weight average metering on my 7D except less intuitive. if i know im metering something that is bright or dark in color i have to tell my camera by means of exposure compensation. whereas sometimes it seems like my 7D knows at times when i am metering with it although i have used exposure compensation on my DSLR many times. now that i have my own light meter even though its missing its high slide
i used it much more than the xd11 meter on my last photo trip and my shots came out nicely exposed for the most part
this website is the most amazing website on the internet. they have the manuals to almost everything it seems like. before i bought my XD11 i was reading through the manuals on several cameras i was interested in to learn a little about them. and also helped me when i first got my bronica as well.
