Re: Flash for butterfly collection & reflections on glass

That is a nice result! In your experience, how many flashes do you get from a set of those pesky "button batteries"?

Actually they aren't button batteries. CR123A and costly.

I think I was running at 1/8 power. I estimate between 500 to 700 shots using 2 SB-R200 flashes. But don't quote me. I tried the rechargeables and would get about 200 to 250 per charge. I stopped using them because I noticed voltage on fully charged one was 4.5 V. I was concerned I might wear out the flash before it's time. That was 6 years ago. They may have improved them since then. But I had switched to using a macro flash bracket with my SB-800 and a gary fong cloudy diffusor. I didn't like it for portraits but it was great for macro photography.
