I use my Minolta flashmeter in my bedrm. studio, primarily because a handleld meter measures light FALLING on the subject, not reflected from subject as all in-camera meters do,making it somewhat more accurate.Although in-camera meters do a pretty good job, esp. using the
TTL flash setting, they can sometimes be 'fooled' into giving wrong results when in extreme lighting/background settings;also i like combining flash and ambient in a studio enviornment and my hand meters do a good job with this also.-Joe Taylor

Yes, most of my paying business uses 4x5 and larger film cameras; a meter is a necessity. I also use it in incident mode for multiple flash setups with digital.

Yes, especially high contrast and video work. Prevents unpleasant surprises.

I use one on my Samsung Rugby Pro. It seems to agree with my Canon XT's readings.

metering is the the only way read light. Shooting background both film and digital all formats both studio, available light and flash fill. Spot meters, incident and reflective, meters for me even after 45 years are a must. Need inspiration, read Ed Weston, zone 6 Ansel Adams...doesn't get any better
