Much like a cardboard box with no top can be cut at the corners and then be made to fold in on the bottom (assuming for a moment the box ...

Re: Connecting Two Cameras to One Remote

I saw a little something that may also apply here. It is called the Camera Axe. It allows triggering multiple cameras and flashes. The device also allows a variety of triggering devices such as sound or light. The fellow who makes it also makes a variety of triggers. This is the link to the splitter...
