That's a nice idea but wouldn't different people have different size eyes in the first place?

All I know is you'd be able to spot the DPs who were smoking doobies before the shoot, 'cause all their footage would come back over-exposed :)

(there are probably other reasons this meter never caught on too...but I'd sure love to march around on set with one someday!)

I've heard stories about how DPs - WAY back when my grandparents were babies - used to have an assistant stare at the scene for several minutes and then look at their pupils to judge exposure. I always thought it was an old wives tale until I saw this link.

I used to take an assistant's hand and hold it in front of a 10K and see how long it took the fingers to burst into flames to determine spot/flood.
