    my 580ex is good for 100-150 indoor shots, more if it's outdoor and fill flash. you'll probably want to carry an extra set.

    I just bought the Canon battery pack. I had a bookmark on my previous comp of a better unit for the 580EX but I can't remember what it was called. Some random wedding photographer designed his own, better and cheaper than the Canon. I can't justify spending $400+ on a Quantum Turbo that I'd rarely use.

    Oh well.
