    Best to use Quantum flashes. No need to worry about overheating.

    You will experience it when your type of shoot or style pushes it to that. And you need a battery pack to push it to that levels.

    Its seldom a problem for most wedding and portrait shooters.

    Some event shooters have this problem. I got thermal shutdown a few times - red carpet, fashion runway, award presentations, etc where you sometimes bang at 1/4 to 1/2 power every second average for like 30 minutes non stop it had to shutdown to protect itself, even with updated firmware. Solution is to have another flash on the belt that enables quick change. Then change the flash batteries (finger scorching hot), open the battery door and it will cool faster.
