Tyler Stableford hits the slopes with PocketWizard MiniTT1 and Profoto AcuteB 600

Join outdoor sports, climbing and adventure photographer Tyler Stableford at Buttermilk Mountain in Aspen, Colorado as he puts the PocketWizard FlexTT5 and MiniTT1 into HyperSync with three Profoto AcuteB 600 watt strobes in this behind the scenes YouTube video.

Shot in the same half-pipe used in ESPN’s Winter X Games, Tyler uses a Canon EOS 1D Mark III with a 16-35mm lens to capture athletes as they reach their apex altitude. Learn how, at 1/500th of second, Tyler can drop the ambient exposure by two or three stops. This overpowers all natural light, and allows him to freeze any action—including powder—for some breathtaking results.

  1. I think you have to change “Canon 1Ds Mark II” to “Canon 1Ds Mark III”…

  2. An exceptional demonstration of the power and value of the hypersync speeds available with the flex/mini combination & some truly stunning images.

    Some great inspiration, but, being short on snow in Australia, I’m now on the hunt for a mountain bike track to try out my trio of flexes.

  3. Okay, I need to read a bit more. Could not this have been done also with teh Multimax units?
    What does the TT5’s offer in addition with use with Studio Heads?

  4. Florian:

    Good question! The FlexTT5 and MiniTT1 can achieve Hypersync – a feature MultiMAX cannot. Read more here:


  5. Wow, impressive video, I thought that Canon could only sync at 1/125. I would love to be able to underexpose the b/ground like this.
