->> Anyone use remotes for high jump? Thoughts on placement? I will be using PW plus II, will this be a problem with other shooters?

->> If you see anyone else using remotes just ask politly if he is using Pocket Wizards (tell him you also planing to do the same and just choose a channel he is not using) usally at a track meet remotes are few and far between , Basketball is another story...

->> Karl,

I can tell you that officials at the UIL State Meet are notorious for limiting what we do with remotes. Also, the athletes themselves can put a nix on remotes if they feel uncomfortable with them. My advice is to come early and chat it up with the officials at the high jump area. They will probably say no, but you might find a cool one. Other shooters and myself have been allowed to put remote cameras in the back of the discus cage, but not near the high jump. That would be a first. Look me up when you get there.

->> I have only done this twice - I don't shoot a lot of track - but both times I put my remote relatively close (out of the way, of course) to and in front of the bar, with a 28-75 zoomed to basically cover the whole bar, on a very low tripod.

->> The officials were ok with it. I ended up using a wide angle at 55mm on a table top tripod on the floor behind the bar. the first shots turned out great but as it got darker the shots looked pretty bad. It was on aperture priority at f/8 so i figured the meter could figure out how to keep the proper exposure. I guess i just need more practice, especially with pre-focusing.
