  1. Thought I'd bump this thread to ask if anyone has since made a small adapter for Sony to Sennheiser? (or the reverse) As would be very handy indeed for those of us who have a mix of Sennheiser/Sony wireless. (or in my case where I have nearly all Sony, but if I need extras then a few more Sennheiser G3 is easy enough to borrow/beg/steal/rent, while Sony UWP-D11 is kinda nearly non-existent if I needed a few more of them specifically)
  2. Guess you're stuck with COS11 then? Though you might want to take a look at Oscar SoundTech if you haven't already, if what you're looking around for is a lower priced alternative.
  3. I've got the exact some one myself from WMB, am happy with it.
  4. So you are telling me I should make my antennas thicker? ;-) But seriously, would it be an ok idea to put a layer of shrink wrap cable over them to make them more robust and last longer? As especially TX antennas can suffer a lot of abuse over their life span. Interesting point to keep in mind, as it then means if I've got a block I know I won't be using half of (such as blk27) then I could slightly optimize the antenna length by cutting it to the length to match the middle of the first half of that block.
  5. Unfortunately true, often nearly everyone on set knows what camera is being used..... does anyone ever look in my bag? Nope! That was only the one shoot I've done with an Alexa though, and many of the people were working on it for free, so it was a pretty low budget shoot.
  6. Yup, two very good reasons to use the MixPre name.
  7. With the addon accessory you can even get 10 inputs
  8. They do look quite different. A quick and easy way to tell the difference between the original Mini and the Mini Pro is look and see if it has built in ND filters or not. If none, then the original. But if it has built in ND filters then it is the Pro.
  9. Two is ideal but if you only have one Tentacle you can get by. Just put it on the camera and make sure you never ever turn off your F8 (as then it will lose TC). You'll need an external battery for the F8 to be able to run it all day long. This is exactly the approach I've been taking with my F4 and an Alexa lately.
  10. Well snap, I'm thinking about a pretty similar situation to you. Which dual receiver option and transmitters to go with. Probably will try and go with a secondhand Lectrosonics SRb with 2x Lectrosonics SMa (or SMQV or SMV. Or LT?? Or SSM?), but really trying to do my research to the max before laying out all this cash. So considering other options such as perhaps based around a Zaxcom QRX100 (maybe with 2x TRX900LA) instead.
  11. Already by random chance watched one of your videos yesterday while looking up NAB news!
  12. 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/
  13. Haha! But wait... That sounds like quite a nifty idea :-o
  14. This doesn't have a built in microphone, is the Tentacle Sync still the only tiny product like this out there with this feature? Even after the announcement of all these new timecode boxes.
  15. Ah bummer, I hope these new TC boxes don't lack this feature.
  16. Ah, thanks for reminding me of this. So if I get say just one Tentacle Sync plus one Nanolockit then I'll be missing out on the benefits of having Nanolockits. It would make more sense for all the TC boxes I have to be Nanolockit, or none of them. Ahhhh.... ha, let's throw yet one more into the mix just to make that decision even tougher! :-P Will be announced at NAB? Guess we'll find out very soon.
  17. Exactly! Use the 788T when it is justified, and have the MixPre6 for the smaller jobs (and also as a back up to your 788T in a worst case scenario when things go to sh*t). But it depends entirely on the mix of jobs you're doing, if a 633 fits 95% of what you're doing then absolutely go for that.
  18. Probably the biggest feature I like about the MP6 vs my Zoom F4
  19. Another quick question about the Tentacle Sync..... what reasons are there now to still get it vs UltraSync One vs Mozegear Qbit (battery life is the 1st obvious reason) vs Ambient NanoLockit? Yup! It sure turned out that way.
  20. Wow, being spoiled for choice. And that thing is TINY!
  21. Yeah as now the 788T / CL-8 + MixPre 6 is a tempting big/small combo you could choose. Then you have options to match bigger/smaller projects.
  22. These empty cities would be a great set to film in.
  23. This is probably the recent thread on this topic that people are referring to.
  24. Yup! But seems like it is very easy enough to reprogram them.
  25. Thanks for the tip about the BaoFeng UV5! Seems to have a little mini cult following in the HAM radio world. What about BaoFeng BF-888S? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2pcs-Walkie-Talkie-Radio-BaoFeng-BF-888S-5W-Portable-Ham-CB-Radio-Two-Way-Handheld-HF/32491670445.html
