I have a Minolta Flash Meter IV that I used when I shot with Hasselblads. I also had a newer Sekonic - can't remember the model number now but ended up selling it after I went digital (Nikon D1). I still have the FM IV, but I find the meter in the Nikons good enough that I don't use it. At times I've been temped to take it out with me, but I can't remember the last time I actually used it on a portrait. I guess I keep it for nostalgic reasons. It sits in it's pouch attached to my studio stand.

The only time I use it is when I'm doing copy work of large paintings, or certain in-studio commercial work where light evenness is critical. I use the flat diffuser on it (haven't got a clue where the dome is now). But of course, this is studio/flash use not ambient light.

So for portraits, no I don't use one anymore.
