  1. When not using my SRb in a camera slot (AKA all the time) I just Velcro it to the camera. The problem is, the upper part of the receiver has screw holes that act like bumpers, making it so you can't get solid surface contact against the camera/battery body. It's also annoying having to always be ripping off Velcro every time I do end up using it in a slot. So... I downloaded Google's SketchUp, grabbed my micrometer and designed a simple "sleeve" for my cam hop. Then I found a website that pairs 3d printer owners with dorks like me so that I don't have to buy a printer and deal with all the headaches (that being said...I'm gonna buy one!). Cost me $20 (Canadian!) and I picked a service that was close to my house to save on delivery charges. Surprisingly, it fits perfectly, it's lightweight and feels durable. Now, all that I can think about are more projects!
  2. Occasionally, I used a thin "bead" of snot tapel/butyl/Joe's Sticky Stuff along the length of the hush lav. Usually works well on loose tops with little to no collar hem. Hides well (not much wrinkle/indent/fabric bunching)
  3. Depends... I've had good luck planting a CUB for one side of the table and booming the other side. Planting a 2nd CUB would have been better but it wasn't an option.
  4. If you are handy - buy a couple of the Remote Audio (Inspired Energy) battery packs (49 or 98wh) and solder up a pigtail with all of the connections that you need. Not the prettiest, but definitely the least expensive option and lightweight.
  5. I haven't used the EK300 in a long time, but I did just use my regular G2's to feed some dinky-cams. They actually sounded perfectly fine (way too good as a scratch track, IMO) I believe you have to turn off the pilot tone on the transmitter to get the EK300 to hear the signal, maybe it's on?

  7. You need a special cable (padded) with a special connection (trrs) I believe.
  8. What!!?? He's amazing.
  9. I just did a shoot that was shot on 2 DSLRs. I sent a scratch track to CH1 and TC to CH2 of each camera. We also clapped a TC slate as we had a roving steadycam type camera thingy (DJI osmo maybe?) It didn't have audio or TC input ability. Post said everything synced perfectly from TC and the slate. The scratch track just gives a bit of redundancy if the primary system failed.
  10. Yes! I don't do narrative work. Doc, lifestyle, "reality" etc. My wires have to be perfect all of the time (OK, 95%) NOTHING will build your lav-hiding chops like working on a lifestyle construction/renovation show. No one has time for retakes, barely any control over wardrobe (if you're lucky, you have some control over the hosts wardrobe) no headspace for a boom, little control over BG noise or location, etc and most importantly - no one gives a damn. The only upside is the massive amount of over-shooting that happens, haha.
  11. Transcend has been great for me. https://www.amazon.ca/Transcend-Super-Multi-Card-Reader-TS-RDF8K/dp/B0056TYRMW
  12. SMQV Sanken COS-11 +21 I always start there, unless some obvious factor is in play (loud environment, etc)
  13. Hi Jon. I don't even remember this project, haha. I'll take a look at my notebooks and see if I can find the circuit. This isn't the circuit that I made, but maybe it's more appropriate for what you want. http://richardhess.com/notes/2009/03/07/phantom-powering-of-early-sennheiser-mics/
  14. I've been using Canare L-4E5C (I believe that's the model#) because it fits perfectly in the Hirose shell.
  15. NICE!!
