  1. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    I didn't see the joke, my mistake, please accept my apologies. Regarding the video there are basically two set ups. One without the fur for both blimps and then they add the fur to the Cinela, which it's not fair for the Rycote. I just find them better than the rycote, call it personal preference if you like... but I'd say everyone here would say the same if they try both. All the best. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    We call death cat to furs here in Los Angeles, you can go to sleep knowing a new thing buddy. And no, they are not using any fur in some of the tests, and then they use the long one on others, have you seen a Cinela ever? Why this bullshit? Just help the guy of the post, one guy telling is not a good test but giving NO reasons and the other who doesn't know what is a dead cat (fur) and never seen a cinela giving useless points to the matter. Have a nice day. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    Please tell us, I couldn't see anything. And don't say deathcat because neither of them are using them. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    Here is a video where you can hear the difference between the best rycote and cinela, just impressive: https://youtu.be/rQ95l5cIexk I use Schoeps CMiT 5u, Schoeps CMC641, DPA 4017b, Sanken CS3, and before them I've had the Sennheiser MKH60, MKH50, some AT... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. DPA 4061 + MKH50 compatibility

    Someone told me that DPAs lavs and DPA mics match perfect in terms of phasing, that if you review the phase charts you will see how good the are together. I haven't check them yet but if that's true brand matters. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    Lighter, smaller, sounds better w/ personalized setup for different lavs, fixed antena but better built and stronger than 50 antenas of my smqv, better battery life than 2 rechargeable AAs for the smqv. It's just another tool, you keep one tool in your pocket that I will keep two Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. How to hide a Sennheiser ME 2 on talent

    Your sound is gonna be shit and you're gonna be remembered as the shitty sound mixer. Just tell them that's a piece of crap and you don't mix that. Just boom. Make them learn that sound is important and needs some budget. If he says he loves the ME2 you're just telling us how ignorant is that person... You Tell him how to do sound, not the other way around. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Large blimp vs smaller blimp

    Hello Mark I've had both and I'd rather go with the small one, but if you want the best just save for the Cinela and you will be happy forever. You will have a Blimp more expensive than your mic tho... Between those two the sound protection I'd say is the same but I've never done a A/B testing, so it's just better constructed, smaller, lighter, better deadcat... Not worth the upgrade in my opinion. Save for better mic or the Cinela. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    You can have 2 batteries and run the whole day... I just love it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Lectrosonics SMWB coming soon?

    SSM is wide band and smaller and sounds great and has the 6-7h battery... unless the new "SMQVs" are 100mW or 250m the SSM is a much better option. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Lectrosonics LT vs SMQV

    I've finally got 1 SRc A-band and 1 SSM (amazing transmiter), my only concern is the 50mW of the SSM and for that reason I'm testing the SMQV and SMV transmiters in a feature film, I have to admit I much prefer the SSM in all aspects, except that it has no option for more mW... I'll probably get another SSM since range is not a problem for the work I do. How much can I improve the range of my SSM using better antenas?
  12. DPA 4061 + MKH50 compatibility

    I use both all the time and never experienced that, but maybe I'm not experienced enough... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  14. Cantar Mini feature rundown at CineGear 2017

    It's the best quality for the half of the price of its predecessor, so yeah, it's not cheap but you're buying the BEST. My only concern it's the number of inputs. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. Cantar Mini feature rundown at CineGear 2017

    Jacques explained it to mee too at the Cinegear 2017, he was so helpful and informative. I love that brand and now they have a really affordable option with the same sound quality that his big brother. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
