Northfield | MN | USA | Posted: 9:48 AM on 08.03.06
->> Mark,

I love the shot, but I really like number 4 in your gallery. I think the motion all around the rider really makes that a special image, looks very commercial. I guess what I am saying is that I think it ads to how crazy the sport is with that motion blur around the rider.

Anyway, thought I'd tell ya so you don't throw that one out later on but maybe use it as your lead image other than the other shot.

Awesome photos,

later,

Robb Long

->> Karl, they actually have a range of 1600 ft, but you still need a receiver hooked up to the camera. I'm guessing that rather than put it on the hotshoe Mark taped the receiver to the bike to make it more secure and safer.

Eagle River | AK | USA | Posted: 1:02 PM on 08.03.06
->> Awesome image. I suppose that after Mark broke his super clamp, the shot he has that is shaky is him shooting one handed with his legs wrapped around the handle bars.

I know that Mark is shooting Nikon, but I think it is time for a switch to Canon...This shot is screaming for full frame from a 5D or 1Ds.

Awesome job Mark...

->> Not sure if they used a pcket wizard or not, but another option would be the interval timer the D200 has. You can set the camera to fire at a certain number of times and intervals.

That wouldn't give them as much control as the PW, but it would work. However, they did it the result was sweet.

I believe Josh Merwin was the first guy to do a remote on motoX, at the 2003 Winter X Games:
