Hello. do you have set white balance your camera in studio?

Very nice tutorial. I am curious as to whether you can use the Triton flash with shutter speeds above the camera’s normal sync speed. I shoot a lot of outdoor beach stuff here in Santa Cruz and my Nikon syncs up to 1/250 second—but many a time I’d like to shoot at 1/500th or even 1/1000th.  I use pocket wizards to trigger a White Lightning X2400 and a Voyager II power pack. I like the power I get from the X2400 but for a lot of running and jumping shots I’d like to be able to shoot at 1/500th or 1/1000th.  Any ideas?

Ben, I am using a Nikon D3 and D3s and have 5 of the old pocket wizards (Plus II)—sounds like I need to pony up and pay for at least 2 or 3 of the new PW’s. Just wanted to make sure that if I do get the new generation PWs that the Triton will work in the Hyper Flash Mode.  My understanding (based on Nikon’s Speed Lights) is that in Hyper Mode the head has to make a series of very short bursts since there is no time when the shutter is completely open.
