    Unusual lav hiding gear

    I love the RM-11 and I use it constantly. I just wish that they would get replace the raised printing with a nice smooth surface.

    MixPre Series Firmware v2.20 May 24, 2018 - Link

    I built a mute box for my Comtek feed with a blinking LED to indicate that the output was muted. Definitely saved a few hurt feelings.

    Atheisticmystic thanks the vets !!!

    Interesting logic. Shall we address your role in Christian atrocities throughout history? Slavery & racism in America? Salem Witch Trials?

    Rechargeable battery management on location

    Honestly...I get through most days without needing to change batteries. 90WH V-LOCK Nomad + 2 dual receivers NIMH AA 4 talent wires (2 batteries each) G2 hop tx G2 cam rx G2 IEM Betso sync boxes Slate The v-lock usually gets me though most days The talent transmitters might need a change near the end of the day (50mw Wisycom) Everything else breezes thorough a whole day.

    Rain protection sound bag

    I use the K-Tek with a VersaFlex harness. I can't confirm if it works with any others.

    Rain protection sound bag

    I fully endorse the K-Tek KSRB2. It's a good balance between versatility, accessibility and protection.

    Survey: Wireless receivers integration in the Cantar family.

    Integrated wideband receivers with emulators for all of the typical wireless systems would be great! Maybe a royalty deal with the wireless companies for providing emulator support.

    Resistors for TA5F Lectro wiring

    1/8 watt is what they supply with their ta5f kits. Definitely easier to fit in the connector.

    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?

    When Production doesn’t rent your kit

    I rent my harness for $300/day.

    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.

    Good source for batteries in Toronto?

    The Ikea batteries are great (so far) but you should get a better charger.
