    I had the romote set up this sunday for the local Managua Derby. The Walter Ferretti vs. America. Ferretti trounced America 4 to 1. The first half everything worked ok. and I got this simultaneous image of goalie Dennis Espinoza diving for the ball.

    Then the second half got started. I forgot to turn on the remote and missed three other goals that would have looked pretty good on the remote with the 10mm lens.

    It goes to show that if you loose your concentration for just a second (the second that it took to turn off the remote transmiter), you might loose the shot. At least the stuff shot withthe 400mm came out pretty darn good.


    here are the pics.
