  1. If it is right for the project, then why not charge more which is appropriate for the shoot's needs? After all, DoP's often will use camera packages which are more expensive than their daily rate, and lighting packages which also cost more than their daily rate. So from that perspective it isn't unreasonable for us to also charge more for rental than our labour rate, if they're requesting tens and tens of thousands of dollars worth of gear.
  2. David Letterman new show

    Ha, thank you for saving me the trouble of posting it :-P been busy lately
  3. Lectro SRc field reports?

    Ah, this is fantastic news! Thanks
  4. Lectro SRc field reports?

    So would people who always enter in their own frequencies (rather than using the built in scanner) then never experience these troubles others have been experiencing with the SRc?
  5. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    I disagree, the future is a fusion of more and more tech together (just look at our smartphones! Combining dozens of functions that were independent of each other not that many years ago. Or within our own industry, the fusion of recorders are mixers rather than always buying separate pieces of hardware). And companies which have a broad range of talents will do this better.
  6. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    Are you hinting a bigger one is coming? ;-) I agree, this is the biggest risk of this announcement (that I feel is otherwise good news for the overall industry? But not their competitors perhaps!). There is a danger companies will make a "standardization" play better with their own products than the competitors. Perhaps Sound Devices could hand over the rights for Superslot to an independent body? That would go a long way to cementing Superslot as an industry standard.
  7. Sound Devices & Audio Ltd

    Well, now Sound Devices has bought them out, the odds have got even higher!
  8. TentacleSync E review

    That did sound a little odd to me, and I suspect something else is in play, did you know not all TC cables are bidirectional? That would be my first guess. (edit: although, now I scroll up I see you mentioned you're using with a F8 & URSA Mini, which both use BNC. And I can't recall any BNC to 3.5mm which are not bidirectional. As I'm guessing you are using this: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1327596-REG/tentacle_sync_c08_cable_tentacle_to.html or https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1327595-REG/tentacle_sync_c06_cable_tentacle_to.html) btw, the F8 will hold it rock solid all day long (unless you turn it off! But with my external battery I can easily run one all day long, or at least well past lunch anyway. And is just a good habit to jam again at lunch)
  9. Ursa Pro Mini AES not working

    You probably already know this, but BMD host their own forums with lots of active users: https://forum.blackmagicdesign.com/viewforum.php?f=2 If you don't get any luck with replies here, you should try posting there as well, as I'm sure you're likely to get a BMD specialist who can help you out. There is also bmcuser which is a busy forum for Blackmagic Design shooters (run by the same group as dvxuser and reduser): http://www.bmcuser.com/forumdisplay.php?5-General-Discussion Sorry I can't be of any more help, I have shot with the URSA Mini 4.6K a few times but never used their AES input.
  10. Soundbag as Hand Luggage

    I've been flying locally in NZ, and to Australia, with my sound bag as my hand luggage and a camera backpack (with inside it wireless/mics/batteries/etc) as my carry on, so far so good! Keeping my fingers crossed.
  11. Neural Networks for Audio: how they work

    As an AI nerd and Go fanatic, when that happened I saw that as the pinnacle of human achievement of the year! Exciting times. Was reached much sooner than people predicted, everyone still thought that was years away (or maybe perhaps even decades away).
  12. Is a new Sound Devices MixPre-10T coming soon?

    I know the MixPre10T has the capability to mirror from the SD slot to a USB drive at the end of the day. But can you do the reverse and instead at wrap copy the day's files from the USB drive to a fresh SD card?
  13. Portabrace “Silent” audio bags.

    How do you like the CEDAR DNS2? What are you finding yourself using it for, are you managing to get an extra kit fee from producers for it?
  14. TentacleSync E review

    Or in other words, just following the instructions? Short hold to turn on then jam. Done.
  15. United States Frequencies

    Thus in Hawaii you'll be fine for now.
