The meter to buy (if you are going to buy one). Straight forward design, can do amient or flash readings, can be paired to PocketWizard units using the RT-32 module (definitely not a necessity, but very convenient). Can do reflective or direct light readings. I find myself not using a meter a lot of the time if I am shooting in a hurry, instead shooting a test and using the on-camera histogram to check exposure (not recommended). This is the only flash meter I have used, and pretty much the only one I see being used, besides the Minolta Auto Meter VF. It runs on 2 ‘AA’ batteries.
accessories– RT-32 module (to fire pocketwizards), ‘AA’ batteries (required)
These go for $279 new, and around $220 on ebay. The RT-32 module (to pair with pocketwizards) goes for $50 new.
