is there a workaround for the F58AM Overheating thing ?

I'm doing lots of outdoor daylight model shooting. I use the flash to compesate the shadows. But the flash is constantly overheating

I bought n external battery pack that did minimize a bit the problem put still is very anoying having to stop a shooting secion because of this

Proud A100, A300, A700 and now A77 dSLR shooter.
Ex. s602z, with an Fuji s9500 as backup
Also have a HX9V that i love

I see this all the time on outdoor/studio shoots. Run any mainstream high power flash at reasonable levels and keep shooting for any extended period and they overheat..

You can either use multiple flashes and keep their power output low, or get a proper portable strobe, e.g. Quadra RX...

I had an SB900 for my D5100, that overheated very often when using it on full power at events, its just par for the course..
