I've become a fan of lithium AA batteries for my flash.

Is there a particular brand you recommend for flash photography?

Is there a brand that you recommend we avoid for flash photography?

I hate batteries that reload the flash slowly. Hate 'em, hate 'em, hate 'em.

Sorry about that Mark1616, I must have overlooked that part of the website.

That's got to drive you administrators crazy when we do stuff like that!

That's my choice of battery also. You can leave them in the flash for months and still have a good charge on them to take pictures.

Either eneloop or Powerex 2700 mAh if you want more power.

Mark1616,

Please take a look at my Copenhagen Opera House Photo and give me some advice on how to take that same photo tonight but do a better job with it.

Thank you very much.



Michael

I would like to add my two cents... get a good smart charger. The one that doesn't take 8 or 9 hours and the one that powers off automatically.

Along the lines of a good smart charger, check out the Maha MH-C9000. I agree that eneloop and Powerex 2700 mAh cells are some of the best out there.
