Last couple of weeks the big display from Hot Wheels has caught a lot of attention. In order to give my editors a few options, I used a total of 4 cameras to capture different vantage points and angles of the big stunt that only lasted a few moments.

PocketWizard Remote Cameras

I used four cameras, a 8mm fisheye and 16-35mm remote, plus a 24-70 and a 70-200 handheld (held one up with the other). It worked pretty well, triggering the remotes with PocketWizard MultiMax units. I had hoped to have my remotes closer, but was not allowed. The event as a whole was made for television, so the best views were dedicated to TV, and a wide lead by the first car made things a bit underwhelming for the tight visual.
