    Rechargables? Is the rf rate a hindrance to you? Thanks

    So far no. You can adjust the aperture / shutter speed / ISO so that less power is used from the flash for each shot.

    Try keeping a lookout in BnS section for second hand SD-8A which is usable on SB-900.

    1) use external battery pack
    2) go for 2700mAh batteries
    3) depends on how u use ur flash e.g. bounce off ceilings use more battery
