Anyone know if there is a way that I can trigger another body simultaneously with the gears I have?

Canon 5D Mk III
Canon 6D
Canon 60D

Canon 580ExII
Canon 430 ExII
Yongnou YN-560 IV
Yongnou YN-560 III (x3)

I also have 602: 2 TX + 4 RX

Thanks in advance!

Answering my own post.... toying with my gears to find out that YN-602 system work wonderfully to trigger multiple bodies.

You can do it with Pocket Wizards as well.

I shoot two bodies simultaneously for first kiss, one wide and one close up

I just use one camera per hand (although you need to grip it different in your left hand in order to hit the shutter), done, no accessories or peripherals needed

Wow ! ^ that's some talent Will! :)

Hmm, so I assume that if the YN's and the PW's do it .. the Cybersync's do it too?

it's actually pretty easy :P For the wide camera you don't really need to look, just pre-set the focus and shoot away, composition can be a bit off but can crop later

A wedding photographer I respect and admire does this as well, but he does it during the processional, holds wide angle in left hand prefocused on groom @ altar, while using right hand and other body to shoot bride walking down.. really difficult to do IMO, I've never gotten acceptable results in my practice scenarios (ie wife walking through kitchen, cat sitting on floor)
