2009 Sea Otter Downhill

So I haven't posted in a while, been pretty crazy with being a dad. I've been working on refining the high speed "hypersync" with my pocket wizard multimax's, and it's been working fairly well. I can't wait for them to come out with the Nikon version of the Flex TT5 though, firing with the camera in one hand and a pocket wizard in the other is a little tiring. I find a good solution at the Sea Otter downhill though. I started shooting normally at 1/250th sync and I was really not happy with the amount of blur I was getting so I switched to the high speed and started shooting at 1/1000th. Then I realized that every shot was pretty much going to be the same so I put my camera on a tripod and just stood there pocket wizard in hand. I realized that if I had planned ahead I could of brought a lawnchair and and icy glass of lemonade. You can see the rest of the shots here

cant you get a trigger to plug into the Pwiz in the camera port? then take that button and tape it to the front of the camera? ive done this when using remotes and it works well. then you can take that pocket wizard and velcro it to the bottom of your camera.
