    Hi,
    In the history of photography this method is known from earlies.(the horse with all four
    legs in the air).For a freelance photographer/amateur is too expensive one.

    What a neat setup. It is amazing what you can do if you have the desire and the resources.

    Here is an excellent YouTube video on shooting U.S. Football using two bodies. I am sure that the techniques shown here would be applicable to most participant sports which are shot from the sidelines.

    I have used his technique of one camera on a monopod and the other hand-held shooting soccer and it works quite well. However, I use the 70-200mm f/4L IS and 300mm f/4L IS lenses on 1.6x cameras as a "poor man's" version of this setup. However since I shoot most sports at apertures less than the maximum (unless I definitely want a shallow DOF), the f/4 lenses do quite well. Unfortunately, after two knee replacements and spinal fusion, I am not as agile as I once was.

    We'll have to start calling you "the bionic man"!

    Actually, I watched a partial knee replacement on you tube just a few days ago - I'm sure glad that the surgeons know what they're doing because I can't figure much of it out.

    Always curious as to why they wear "space helmets" during that kind of surgery.

    You should see me when I go through airport security. Luckily I am a ruddy-faced, blue-eyed guy. If my bionic parts were combined with racial profiling; I would never be allowed on a plane.

    As such, I always need to go through security early since I get thoroughly searched every time...
