Way to do this?

Is there a way to use two (preferrably hot shoe) flashes simultaneously so to take advantage of each units intermittent firing due to recycling times. The end result would be double the firing rate without worry of units over heating and recycling capabilities.

This can be done with the PocketWizard MultiMax (external link). There may be a less expensive way though, maybe someone else will chime in.

SpeedCycler - Perform sequential triggering for up to 4 cameras or 4 electronic flash units. Ideal for multi-angle camera shots, and reducing recycle time in fast paced photo shoots, by triggering the next flash in line, while the previous flash is charging. With 4 PocketWizard MultiMax transceivers connected to 4 cameras, the SpeedCycler mode can quadruple frames-per-second firing speed.

Light, composition, shooting technique matter to the end quality most. -Pekka
