Many thanks, NHL-

My husband just told me yesterday that I own too many external flash units. Then I directed him to this thread today, and he readily agreed that my lot is pitifully small when compared to your impressive and massive collection of external flashes.

You made my day!

Actually all modern flashes work quite similarly: one just needs the basic principle as all theses various systems are derived from this same idea that was invented several decades ago:

Well I have been wondering and now I know who to ask. I only have one little 430EXII but is it better to use regular or rechargeable batteries?

Thanks,
Andy

Thanks Sarah. I have been thinking about it. I used them before in my old p/s.
