I always use Sekonic L 718 and L 518 incident flash meters in my studio since I have no desire to "chimp" my way to a proper exposure via the screen on the DSLRs that I shoot with. The L 518 is now over 30 years old and has needed to be re-zeroed a couple of times because I dropped it, but other than that has only needed the occasional AA battery. The L 718 has been even more reliable. Both of them have always been very accurate, and I agree that TTL flash metering on location with battery powered camera manufacturer's flash units has never been that wonderful for me.
