Another option nobody has mentioned. You said you're using the on camera Flash. I assume you're saying that the flash drains the batteries on the camera pretty quick? If the oncamera flash is sufficient for your purposes, what about just getting an adapter to run your camera off of AC power? You still have the flash recycle time but if you're not firing at full power I don't see that being much of an issue.

2 X of anything cheep... just use manual exposure and give ample time for recharge.
shoot RAW and do extensive exposure and color balance test first... use QP or Kodak chart...
if your exposures are good +-0.3 all color can be fine tuned in PS RAW process...
and stick with the same lens & camera for the project

Hi,

I need a flash that will take over 2000 continuous non-stop shots. I take pictures of books for research. I am a grad student in history.

Can someone please tell me the best and cheapest flash I need?

I've read your previous posts and inquiries so for this job just use your smart phone for photos
