Thanks!

I'm looking at just renting the above mentioned version of the PW, any advice on using them? How many will I need 4? One for each body and one for each light?

You only need two MultiMax units for the cameras. The handheld trigger and the flash trigger units can be one of the Plus II units that you already have.

Setting up the MultiMax for synchronized shooting is a bit complicated so you would be better off downloading the MultiMax manual from the PW site (http://www.pocketwizar​d.com/HTML/manuals.asp (external link)) and reading pages 41 through 49. On page 47, they refer to a "one unit equalization" and a "two unit equalization". You want to the "two unit equalization".

One of the good things about buying 90% of my gear from a local pro-shop is he will rent/loan me anything. I'm headed out of town next week so when I get back I'll grab a pair of them from him and give it a try!

Thanks for the tip on the "two unit equalization", I'll read it in detail while I'm on vacation!

Thanks again for all the help!
