Checking Pocket Wizard Range In The Chugach Range

July 9, 2008 | • Workshop


Pocket Wizards have an amazing range.  And they have been tested now in an amazing range… the Chugach range here in Alaska.  We just finished the Alaska OneLight.  I’m beat.  More later.

Cheers, Zack

    Genius. Next get a shuttle astronaut to take one to the space station and shoot him looking out the window back at earth. Bet that shot would get you a Pulitzer…

    I drive a truck for a living and used to run from Indiana to Anchorage a few times a yr. If you drive up that way, you need to stop by Bairds Landing in BC. There is a small Provincial park there with a hot spring swimming hole. In the winter the steam from the Springs coats the surrounding trees in ice, making the whole area resemble the rock formations in some caves.

    Got to like the PW…nice view too.

    Hey Ed … Zack IS uber famous already …

    Zack – good to see the range for the range. How many feet would you say that was? Do PW’s actually do work at the top end of 1600 feet?

    Nice image.

    I look forward to the day of having radio flash control, but for now must stick with using the IR on my Canon flashes. One of these days.

  • Asther said on July 30, 2008

    Wow… amazing shot and amazing finds! Which model of PW do u own? I’m looking at getting one too but since it’s not available in my country, I don’t hv a chance to test it personally before purchasing. So hv to make do with researches on the internet.
