    I have been recording sound for almost 20 years. Mostly TV, doc & lifestyle.
  1. How to wire a hairy talent

    How much collar does the t shirt have? Can you get wardrobe to make a slit in the collar (in the back) and feed a mic around to the front?
  2. When Production doesn’t rent your kit

    I rent my harness for $300/day.
  3. Timecode and Varicam?

    Set your recorder to 23.98 Set your sync box to 29.97 (confirm that your sync box can be cross-jammed, Tentacles can not, for example) Jam sync box and set it up on camera as normal. I have a client who still uses these cameras and this method works. Do some testing if possible. Jason.
  4. Good source for batteries in Toronto?

    The Ikea batteries are great (so far) but you should get a better charger.
  5. Good source for batteries in Toronto?

    You can also try DV Shop. They stock Eneloop Pro AAs for a good price.
  6. Possible Betso TCX-2+ issue?

    The auto-on & auto-jam features really make external powering a non-issue for me. As long as the battery is good, at the top of the day (let's say you forgot to put a fresh one in) the receivers will take a jam and stay in sync for as long as the receiver battery has juice. That being said, one less thing to do is always welcome on a busy shoot.
  7. David Letterman new show

    I did a couple of seasons with a big bearded guy. Behind the beard, 1" below the collar of his t-shirt (hidden by the beard) worked perfectly everytime.
  8. New Season Antiques Roadshow what mics used?

    Sennheiser mke 104, I believe.
  9. camera link

    Focus the Focus Dingus, ya dingus. 😂
  10. Lithium batteries on board

    No quantity limit if under 100wh. 101-160wh, limited to 2 spares. Also, the rules say "with airline approval" So, obviously they can override the rules of they want to.
  11. MKH50, Sennheiser vs Rycote mount?

    I actually had a great experience with the stock Sennheiser mount that came with the 50. No unexpected handling noise issues at all.
  12. If shoes were clues, they'd be walking around barefoot.
  13. Call Lectro with the serial number. Or, if you're handy, it's probably labeled on one of circuit boards. Grab a screwdriver.
  14. Sony MDR 7506 coiled cable

    I like the 7506 cable as well. It spends most of the time tucked into my bag, but I can release some coil when I need it.
  15. Lav on a speaker usually works well enough. If it's just a podium mic, I try to split it before their mixer, or plant a lav on the podium mic itself.
