The tried-and-true method of shooting football is supertelephoto on a monopod and medium focal length lens around the neck for the quick-grab when the play lands in our lap. Often times we’ll have a third body with a wide angle lens–but no third hand to hold it with.
One solution I tried years ago was to make the third body a remote attached to my monopod, using my second handheld body as the trigger for the remote via a radio transmitter. However this setup proved to be far too heavy and awkward to be of much practical use, so I abandoned the idea.
A year or so ago I reviewed the Nikon Df and even with its shortcomings I said it would be very useful as a remote because of its compactness and light weight: http://www.upaa.org/blog/hello-old-new-friend-the-nikon-df/
When football season rolled around again I decided the Df might make the “remote on a monopod” idea workable and I’ve been much happier with the setup this time around.
Here’s my setup in action:

While many of our students at Radford University in Radford, Virginia were heading home or off to warm weather destinations for spring break, a group of 12 undergraduate students, two high school students, and three faculty braved bone-rattling temperatures and shivery Arctic winds in Barrow, Alaska—the northernmost city in the United States—to conduct scientific research. As multimedia producer for RU, I received funding to document the trip, less than two months before takeoff, with a mission to send videos and photos of this experiential research learning opportunity back to the university daily to post on a website (www.radford.edu/alaska) dedicated to the trip.
