  • e46 M3 rig shot

    I was never able to do a rig shot of my own car since the 20D doesn't have any kind of wireless remote trigger. I suppose I could have used the timer but that's to cumbersome.

    But found out that I can use my CyberSyncs with a N3 cable from FlashZebra. Well the cable came in last week and had a chance to test it out over the weekend. It works though it seems like you have to "reset" the trigger by toggling a switch thats inline on the cable.

          Nice work. Movin' along. Agree with Marshall. Tint your windows....and mine too!
          Throw a little light. If it doesn't come back, it probably fell off...

          Tamron 17-50mm f2.8 Lovin' it. I could glue it to my camera and be happy.
          Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 It's the older model w/o the AF motor and it focuses FAST. It's just like the 17-50, only longer.

            It's probably the same to what you are thinking. Used two avenger suction cups to attach the pole/boom to the car on one end with the camera attached at the other end. Used the cybersyncs as a remote wireless trigger for the camera. The remote wireless trigger is what helped alot to take the picture

              Quickly chose a place down the street where I live to do this test run of the cybersyncs
              But definitely keep in mind the darker background

              Oh and I don't do tint! I prefer the clear look lol.

                      Nice shots, and a good explanation of the setup.

                      How about a rig shot to make it real for some of us?
                      Without others thinking you are good, it doesn't matter how good you think you are.

                              The setup:



                              with camera and cybersync in pouch
