Last night I hauled a couple bees, lightstands, cables, you name it to the court before the game, to setup a cross lighting setup on one end of the court. Ended up not being able to find a place to mount everything, and let alone plug in everything. Talked with the athletic director, and he is willing to help find a place to mount them. I'm thinking it'll be too much work, so shoot, maybe I'll order another 580EXII. I have the super clamps, the brackets, the skyports, etc, and this would take up quite a bit less room and be much handier than dealing with lightstands & long extension cords. Aha, the trick here. How long will a set of AA's last in a 580EXII for basketball cross-lighting? The strobes will be about 20-30 feet from the corner of the court, and 10 feet above the ground. Does anybody have experience with doing this?
