I use a Galco Filmeter by Racine.  Times in 30, 36, 60, and 90ths of a 
second.  About 40 years old now, no problems, no failures.

Thinking back across my entire life, I can't think of any electrical, or 
electronic item that hasn't ultimately failed in some irritating way, 
from not working as expected, or right, to not working at all, and the 
stuff I have now, just hasn't yet.
