inciteimages on Remote Camera Triggering

inciteimagesWe genuinely get excited when we see someone posting a photography how-to column on their blog. Here’s one which is worth your time and careful study.

More and more photographers are coming to realize PocketWizard radio triggers can be used for more than just triggering off-camera lighting. If you want to make the most out of your shooting opportunities, why not throw an aging camera up in the rigging or down on the floor of the track, doubling or tripling your coverage with one click of the shutter?

The blog inciteimages explains how Nikon shooters can do just that by publishing a post entitled “How to remotely trigger a Nikon camera using a PocketWizard FlexTT5 and PocketWizard MiniTT1.” Fourteen steps are outlined in the uncredited story. Presumably written by Mark Watson, an Australian photographer, the piece goes into detail on how to get your Nikon bodies shooting in sync with PocketWizard MiniTT1 and FlexTT5 radio triggers.

Even if you don’t shoot Nikon, you can learn something in this informative piece. Enjoy.

Check out more of Watson’s work at his site.

    Thanks for the Kudos PocketWizard crew… and yes it is written by me ‘Mark Watson’. Might even blog a step by step on hypersyncing the Nikon SB900’s and SB800’s to get D4 shooting at 1/2000th sec with full power flash output. Anyone out there not already know how to do this????

    OK Since no one else responded.
    I’d like to see your step by step on hypersyncing the Nikon SB900′s and SB800′s to get D4 shooting at 1/2000th sec with full power flash output.

      Get the latest firmware.
      Get the software.
      Click on Advanced at the bottom of the PW Utility screen.
      Click on the HyperSync Tab .
      Set the auto set level to FAST.
      Click on Apply Changes.

      Set flash to full power manual.
      Start at normal X-sync and increase the speed until you see shutter incursion.

      The amount of HyperSync Shutter speed available to a particular camera depends on the mechanics of the camera, lens, and output of the flash. HyperSync is best used for studio-type flashes that have a lot of power.

      We are working on a HyperSync Webinar at the end of July.
