Yes, simple technical description:

I shoot using 4 cameras, prefocused, on tripods, activatef simultaneously remotely. What one camera misses the other whould get.

Yes (patience) and thanks.

Being and getting into position is more important than many may believe.

I did a double take for 28mm -- I see this adapted to a GH5. Still must've been pretty close though.
