View Full Version : FL50R - faster recycling possibilities?

I'm coming from Canon where I've been used to using the extra battery pack for the 580EX flashgun in order to give me faster flash recycling (and reduce the risk of batteries failing when I most need them). I see there is a high voltage power pack (FS-HV1) and also a flash power battery grip (FS-FP1) for the FL50 (and presumably FL50R.

I had hoped that I could put some AA's into the FS-FP1 to achieve faster recycling, but the blurb seems to indicate that the grip needs the high voltage pack as well.

It may be I need to go with the high voltage pack - but the grip seems of little use in this case. It does have the word "battery" in its title and price wise would suit me more.

Can anyone clarify? Thanks

(I'll only receive my E3 and FL50R tomorrow/next day - but I'd like to order whatever it is I need as soon as I can - especially as no one seems to know what I'm talking about!)
