I was wondering if there was a way to use the 7D as a light meter and the short answer seemed to be "No!". After being reminded way passed the point of redundancy that the 7D is first and foremost a stills camera, I looked for some of the tools photographers were using. At the top of the list was the histogram.

I discovered that in live view mode, you can take a still that is immediately displayed with its histogram. You can grab a WB from this still as well as use the histogram to help with exposure. I found this device that folds up to 10" and doubles as a reflector...what do ya'll think? It'll be here next week...
