Re: Pocket Wizard prices

When I was at PMA last week, Samsung took us to see an NBA basketball match at the Staples stadium in Los Angeles. We watched the LA Clippers narrowly beat Charlotte.

Anyway, next to us was a photographer using a Nikon D3 and he appeared to have a Pocket Wizard fitted. Every time pressed the shutter release, the whole basketball court was clearly flashed. We were half way up the one corner of the stadium in a private box, so he was maybe a hundred feet or more from the play. I guess he was a stadium pro and was linked into a permanently installed array of strobes situated around the court. He was allowed to flash the players during play and presumably they are used to it...
