Here’s a short little camera hack for those of you having trouble with re-charging the flash by adding an external battery. It might be a hack but it will work if you are shooting photos in long sessions.
If you’ve been shooting with a flash for a while, I’m sure you had some battery problem or another at least once. Like when one of four batteries goes bad and quickly discharges the other three. Or when it’s cold and the batteries don’t hold their charge so well anymore. Wouldn’t it be nice if you could have a more reliable source of power? One that virtually lasts for ever (well, not forever, but for a darn long time).
