If you don't mind, how much did the Quantum B. pack and flash cost you? Being on the conservative side, I mostly cap my ISO at 400 on both 40D and 50D (wish I can afford a 5D mk2/mk3 (soon). Until I get the B. pack, I will try to bump my ISO up to 800 also maybe drop my F stop from 4 to 2.8.
I was at Wedgewood again last night, btw. It was a great time as the B&G, the Bridal party and both Families were awesome individuals.
Thanks for always helping my Bryan!!!!
Sorry I never got back to you about Wedgewood. Honestly, I dont have any secrets about the place, so I am sure you did great.
I bought the quantum Turbo 3, and its expensive. The flash was $645, the battery pack was $624. Expensive setup, but I think I am liking it so far. Im still on the fence.

Quantums fry non-quantum flashes very often.
I use combo of bare and bounced multiple flashes to light both bride and catching group separately, higher ISO 800-1600 and a fairly wide aperture f/2.8 or larger, get plenty of frames always exposed the same.
Ive heard of quantum packs frying flashes as well, but I think you can do it as long as you are constantly aware of the situation. Dont fire it too much, swap out flashes to let it cool down, and keep an eye on how hot it is getting.
