I tried using Canon 580 EX II and 600 EX on 1d4/1dx but even at 1/4 power only there are 4 seconds to recycle power, even when using Quantum SC charger. Here are my questions:
1) Would using Quantum Turbo 3 vs SC make a difference for recycle time?
2) Would using Quantum Trio + Quantum Turbo 3 make a big difference from Canon 600 EX?
3) Can I get several shots per second at 1/4 power or 1/2 or full power with...... any kind of shoe mounted light?
I guess there is the question of how many shots too. and how much power is needed.... well at midday using full power of 580 EX II can make a difference, because of the focal length and distance from subject..... ISO 100, 135mm, 12 feet, 15 feet
And how many shots? that could be budgeted more, there are just some bursts needed at times when action is ideal (an alignment of colors, athletes, background, so I want those 3 shots per second with as much flash power as I can get)
Your input will go a long way.... these are the kind of questions that cost a lot to learn from one's missed shots and time going by....
And yes I could give up TTL if needed, but sometimes action happens so fast and distance to subject varies, so TTL would be nice.
Thanks for your input.
