    I do that when I am unsure of the exposure. A mid-range digital camera makes a pretty good "digital polaroid" to let you test out exposure settings. For tricky situations or night shots, this can prove very helpful.

    Yes, I use G2 and EOS 30.
    Sometime preview the same setting on G2 before taking the shot on EOS 30.

    It may not be 100% accurate, but it will give you a guideline to start with. After you use it more, you will know how much to compensate.
