Anyone using light meters?

"Back in the day", when I was doing high speed filming for analysis work we used light meters to adjust our exposure.  I was just wondering if anyone is using them anymore or whether they have become a thing of the past.  With the technology packed into cameras these days and the flexibility of the post processing software packages, is there a need?

I usually shoot in AV mode but have been considering going to manual mode for full control, thus the question regarding light meters.

Thanks!
