People still use modelling lights? Funny.

Yes, especially as modelling lights are now becoming increasingly accurate in coverage, AND relative brightness... the Einsteins being a case in point (diffuser dome over lamp and tube.)

And anyway, what's the point in carefully observing in the viewfinder how the light and shadow falls across the model as she takes up different poses, and timing your shots accordingly, if the light you see does NOT reflect the light you're gonna get?

Are you saying you don't work that way. Funny.
