Alexander Ovechkin vs. PocketWizard

Some of us are old enough to remember the days when hockey players were not required to wear mouth guards and helmets. There were a lot of toothless guys on the ice who had no problems suiting up again and again to do battle with wooden sticks. Bones were broken, noses bloodied, and equipment got seriously abused.

That said, it’s nice to see PocketWizard gear can take any damage the NHL can dish out. Check out this segment from a Pittsburgh Penguins and Washington Capitals game, as posted on YouTube by the NHL. Alexander Ovechkin of the Capitals not only scores on Marc-Andre Fleury, but takes out the net cam, remotely fired with a PocketWizard MultiMAX.

Watch carefully, and you’ll see a technician remount the PocketWizard back on the camera. If anyone knows who the photographer is, give a shout. We’d love to credit him, as we do with all shooters who use PocketWizards.

Enjoy, sports fans!

John B. Holbrook’s Studio Set-up

John B. Holbrook, II has been building up his lighting equipment over the past year. He recently wrote two posts on his blog, Thru My Lens, about his use of the PocketWizard FlexTT5 and the PocketWizard MiniTT1.

His site features iPhone articles and lots of photography. Although we were unable to find an email address for him on his site, we like what he’s doing, and wish him all the best as he works out with his newly-equipped home-based photography studio. Here’s a screenshot below excerpted from his post entitled “Playing With Lighting & Remote Triggers In My Watch Photo Studio.”
