The camera's mechanical. It only needs a battery to operate a near-useless meter. Built-in meters suck. Get a good incident meter and forget the camera batteries.

I get excellent results with the meter in my Canon FT and prefer not to haul around any more gear if I can avoid it. It is pretty accurate.

A reflected meter cannot tell the difference between a change in reflectance and a change in illumination. One requires a change in exposure, the other does not. This is inarguable.

I'm not arguing anything. I have positive first hand experiences and base my observations on that. My keeper rate is certainly not affected by the built in meter.

To me, that's all that matters.
