Hey all you happy people (intoning ol' Droopy dog for those to young for it).

I am looking for a good way to meter the light underwater without having it in camera. I am shooting with a Hassy SWC. I am thinking about using my 7D to meter for some shots but I need a better way to do it (another camera is not easy to handle underwater...).

Anyone have any ideas?

Thanks!

Google might be your friend for a used one.

There is an old sekonic on ebay right now for $30. Otherwise best bet might be one of the underwater bag housings and chunk the meter in it.
