Re: Anyone shooting events with two cameras? What about flash

I admittedly have not read all the comments so maybe this has already been said but what I do is put a transmitter on each camera and set them to the same wireless flash unit. typically I have my assistant hold up the flash or use a lightweight stand for the flash. That way I don’t have to carry a flash on either camera. I actually agree that a full sized on camera flash unit is awkward and I hate using them on camera.

Even if I don’t have an assistant or she’s elsewhere else, usually I can get someone to hold up the flash for a photo or two before finding another willing person. There are always a few shots where there’s no one to hold the flash for me so I either lay it down somewhere or hold it up myself with one hand and the camera with the other. Not ideal but better than hauling around two flash units all night.
