  1. Time Code to Red Epic W

    Once for a TVC I only got informed finally about the camera they're using during the drive down to the shoot (it was an out of town shoot). The director (who was in the car with me) told me it was an Arri Mini. Once I arrive, I wander over to the camera crew and I think "that is a funny looking Arri Mini!!" In fact it looks suspiciously like a RED Epic.... ! ha
  2. Tentacle sync e + nomad at 29.97

    For a casual observer like myself, this really puts me off considering Zaxcom (which I have been considering) to get into in the future. You'd think surely it is a high priority for Zaxcom to improve compatibility across the board?!
  3. Zoom F8n.

    Yup, it is July:
  4. Zoom F8n.

    Pity they don't have an Android app either. I did a shoot a few weeks back with the F8, and the app is cool indeed, just felt like they could do so so much more with it! (such as why not playback over bluetooth?!)
  5. Tentacle sync e + nomad at 29.97

    Likely all Tentacle needs to do to make this "work" is introduce an option in their app to turn on/off the "auto detect frame rate" feature. Then all of us can have it switched on, but Zaxcom users can use the app to switch it off!
  6. Zoom F8n.

    Where did they say they won't? There are more things they'll change than just what they've said so far. Maybe they'll change that. (fingers crossed)
  7. Naked Audio

    Maybe it means audio files without any video? Who knows!
  8. Things I found Helpful

    I use these too! Good tip about using a bit of cloth and meths to clean the shoe first so that it sticks better.
  9. Social skills of the Sound Mixer

    I like this phrase!
  10. Social skills of the Sound Mixer

    Yeah, I was asking for something to be displayed from the camera today and the AC (& DP) was telling me it wasn't possible at all. Which is odd, as the last few days I'd been working on another different production with the same camera and they could?! On one hand it is nice to get a few extra minutes of sleep, on the other side it is darn annoying spending the whole day running a bit behind.
  11. Audix SCX1-HC vs AKG C480B+CK63

    Today I was booming an actress with a CK63 from above when I got an air explosion when she exhaled, which surprised me as unexpected from that mic position. But later on today there was a close up of a fly swatting, & I got that sound of the fly swatter whooshing by perfectly clearly without any wind problems. Curious.
  12. Now Sound Devices has bought the company, they're taking it a step further than just being another's distributor. Even tighter integration is surely on the cards. https://www.newsshooter.com/2018/04/16/sound-devices-goes-wireless/
  13. Cantar X3 Mini

    Eh... whoops, is what happens when you're running on 5hrs/night sleep. Sorry! But Derek read my mind!
  14. Audix SCX1-HC vs AKG C480B+CK63

    I started using an AKG CK63 today, & is it just me or is it quite sensitive to wind noise? (When you're swinging between actors) As it seems more sensitive to this than any other hyper I've used (& I've used half a dozen or so before).
  15. Sound Devices Wireless (rebranded Audio Ltd)

    Very sorry about the double post! Awkward. Was sharing it from my phone and it seems there was a glitch.
  16. Sound Devices Wireless (rebranded Audio Ltd)

    Agreed, I too think they're one of the best. Maybe even "the best"? At least is my favourite. But they're not infalliable, seems they got it wrong this time.

  18. Social skills of the Sound Mixer

    Tips on how you have quietly delivered but memorable moments?
  19. Cantar X3 Mini

    Nope, haven't heard any more about this. But I see Sound Devices is also going for tighter integration (with their own branded wireless), it is the direction the market is going in: https://www.newsshooter.com/2018/04/16/sound-devices-goes-wireless/
  20. The Deity will retail at $369 USD or $429 in a kit with a Rycote Lyre shock handle. Their launch video from yesterday: Curtis Judd reviewed it: TubeShooterMag also reviewed it: http://tubeshooter.co.uk/2017/01/01/aputure-unleash-chinese-deity-on-the-world/ Other coverage: http://www.redsharknews.com/audio/item/4251-aputure-takes-aim-at-prestigious-rivals-with-new-shotgun-mic http://thehouseofvideo.com/2017/01/11/Is-the-new-Aputure-Deity-shotgun-mic-a-Rode-killer/
  21. NAB 2018 Products update

    How would no inputs and six outputs work exactly?
  22. So... Nothing new from SD at NAB, I guess.

    The upside to being at NAB is brands get a tonne of coverage of items that they announced already and are showing at NAB For instance sites like No Film School has tonnes of articles up from NAB of products which is all "old news" to me, but they wouldn't have otherwise covered if not for NAB focusing in the attention.
  23. NEW SMWB and SMDWB Lectrosonic units Announced..

    Oh yeah, the non-specialist websites can be a bit slow on the uptake. But thought some might like to see this extra coverage of it anyway.
