Re: Compared to what ? A dedicated speedlight with 4 AA batteries ?

DSLR's have power supplies much larger than a point and shoot camera though, additionally, the DSLR can usually use less flash power due to shooting at higher ISO's than people like to keep compacts

If your trying to light a room with a tiny little flash at ISO200 its going to take a lot more power than shooting at ISO1600

Not really. Mainly comparing to a DSLR built-in flash such as Nikon or Canon. I missed so many shots thanks to the slow recycle time.

Slow compared to what ? Another point and shoot ?

A $500 Nikon SB900 with four AA batteries ?
