    I am a professional photographer with a developing interest in video and therefore an equal need to learn as much about location sound recording as possible. I need all the information I can find in order to learn how to use my Sound Devices kit!

  1. Speedy Recovery

    Get well soon Jeff
  2. Multiple operator monitors

    The Blackmagic is on a Summer discount as well right now. Just in case you are looking at it there is one form Aputure which is just a monitor unlike the BM but the Aputure suffers from some latency which you may find unacceptable and isn't nearly as good a monitor as the BM 4K
  3. http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-39038406 I watched SS-GB and didn't have any problem understanding what was said and the speakers for my TV are rubbish. I am with Christian in that I think some of it is a generational thing. I also think that a lot of people don't actually listen with any concentration, they just "expect to hear".

    Best wishes for today Jeff.
  5. jws slow loading on MBP and iphone

    I have the same loading problems in the UK on my iPad sometimes it doesn't actually load and I have to refresh in order for it to load at all. Doesn't stop me loving the site though
  6. Pelican case dividers VS. Portabrace dividers

    Sorry. Yes mine was a 1610. Apologies for the error
  7. Pelican case dividers VS. Portabrace dividers

    I ordered a set of the Trekpak stuff for my 1620 for my camera gear. I ordered an extra full length divider and it still wasn't enough to make a full working set. I had to order yet another full length in order to get a full working set. Bear in mind one of my lenses is almost the full length of the case so it's not like I had a ton of small lenses that required a lot of little dividers. I was pretty angry that the supplied set is clearly not enough. To cap it off if you live in the UK they will charge you more to send it than it does to buy the stuff. Ridiculous. It's good stuff but it really isn't worth the money in my opinion.

    I am sorry for your loss Jeff

  11. Twelco 4x4 TW LP44 Field Mixer

    This eBay link is actually the manufacturer I'm almost certain. I did some research on the dvxuser forum when I was thinking of buying one and found out that he was the maker. Apparently he will take an offer so the price isn't binding. I didn't buy one in the end so I have no experience of them. Just thought I would mention it. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/TW-LP4-w-NP1-Li-ion-battery-ENG-EFP-Location-Field-Portable-Sound-Audio-Mixer-/261957510224?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3cfde26450
  12. Happy Birthday Jeff

    Happy birthday Jeff
  13. RIP Doug Sax

    That's sad. I actually have The Sheffield Track Record that he is holding in the picture in the first link. Astonishing sound....terrible music thereby proving J Gordon Holt's thesis that the better the sound was recorded the worse the record would be which is so often true with music aimed at audiophiles. Rest in peace Mr Sax.

  15. Sarah Jones 1 Year Today
