Having watched Cupcake Wars and saw they ofen used icecream scoops or small measuring cups. I just wondered what people use to fill the liners to get them even.

Yep, just use a disher (AKA ice cream scoop). They come in a dozen or more different sizes. Quick, easy, precise.

Scoops of different sizes... some recipes rise more than others. I write the size of the scoop and whether it is a scant or heaping scoop. Bed Bath and Beyond has a dispenser that works well with thinner batters. You can also use a 24" pastry bag filled with batter.

portion scoop and a weight scale. Every cupcake is exactly the same weight.

Yep, I'm anal.

I use the Pampered Chef large scoop its 3 Tbs(45Ml) for the standard size CC & the small scoop 1Tbs(15Ml) for the minis & I always level them & they turn out perfect.
