There are 3 great videos from Sportshooter's Donald Miralle over on SS.

I've just watched them and there are some really great tips and hints.

I've heard 300ft in open air for a standard PW. I'm sure it's on their website.

The Special Features are great. Although I don't shoot American Football, there is a great tutorial from Robert Hanashiro

THANK YOU, DARREN! Not only a great series but it pointed out a solution to a problem I've had with setup on a remote for boxing where I couldn't get my eye to the viewfinder from the lift! Canon right angle finder which I will order from B&H today!

And more great little videos from the features link!

Well, thanks again ... I have ordered the finder! I didn't know they had one. The little ZigView gadget is overkill for me right now and with Live View coming on the 1DMIII even more so, but the right angle viewer will be so quick and easy that I may not need Live View for this.

I'm in favour of anything that avoids getting neck cramp or a face full of mat!

Well, my problem is hardly those ... it is for setup for this "Eye-in-the-Sky"® camera.
