shoe mount flash with external extra powersupply
Apr 26, 2010

I remember the days when I had an external battery pack that I wore on my belt and a cord that attached to the strobe on my camera. This cut recycle time to almost nothing, and could take hundreds of shots when I did wedding type affairs.

I have not found any shoe mounted flashes or any bracket mounted flash that has such an item. Are they used any more?? What brands, how much?

The recycle delays are just as annoying as the shutter delays were in the earlier digital cameras. Lots of studio choices, but not what I was looking for. I want to mount the flash with my DSLR and carry it around.
Lord help me to consistently follow my own advice.

K10D, Sigma 17-70, Pentax 55-300, 50mm/1.4 SMC Takumar, 28/2.8-Super Takumar-M, Minolta manual 50mm macro lens. Pentax 360 flash, 4 old flashes and a pile of accessories.
