    Hey

    I am a paparazzi photographer (dont judge!) and need to upgrade my battery power source for my flash. I am currently using a Canon 430 Ex II.

    Which battery packs would you suggest for this type of flash use?

    I look forward to reading your suggestions!

    Thanks
    Nic

    The 430EX is not compatible with external battery packs.

    The 580EX, on the other hand, has a socket to accept an external power supply. Canon makes one, but another popular option is the Quantum Turbo.
