Me too Glenn, I'm sure that we'd think up some cool great stuff to do! I've been in that position for Sean's double ribbon cut routine and it is just tough to convey it photographically. Really wide and you lose the excitement, much tighter and you just have a cool plane shot. Somewhere in the 24-70 there is just the right focal length.
Jim / Glenn,
How about this setup for that shot?
Camera 1 - mounted to a spike mounted ball head in the ground. Fisheye or 10mm lens. Right in the centre of the poles, manually focussed. Pocketwizard receiver used to fire camera.
Camera 2 - 24-70 lens, with a Pocketwizard transceiver fitted to fire camera 1.
Camera 3 - Gopro mounted to the top of 1 of the poles, looking towards the rope.
Camera 4 - Gopro worn by 1 of the pole holders. Have this guy on opposite pole to to the pole mounted gopro.
