    Sony UWP Wireless System

    I'm wondering if you can do a feed like this on DSLR's, do you know if that can be done? I was on a shoot not too long ago and someone posed the same question. The one only thing I was able to respond was you can on an ARRI ALEXA and a RED, but wasn't sure about DSLR's.

    Abisonic Microphones

    Thanks Philip, and thanks David, I'll review all the mics mentioned and my wallet before I make my mind.

    Abisonic Microphones

    I'm a little late in doing this, but I actually just finished updating to the 4.10 firmware of the Zoom F8. I didn't see the point to updating to that firmware since I wasn't intending on buying the Sennheiser Ambeo VR Mic, or any of that class. Seeing is how things are changing for me, I've had a change of heart. So my question is, what has everyone's experience been with this mic and is there a cheaper alternative that isn't a Rode mic?

    Hey Dalton, The Nanolokits are my next investments within the next 2 months. I'm hoping to at least get two, how do you like them so far?

    Viviana or Ursa?

    Constantin thanks for your comment so far I'm sold. I'm getting some Viviana straps next.

    Viviana or Ursa?

    Perfect answer, as it stands I already made my decision in buying Viviana for now. I will however get some URSA's as well later on down the road. But for now, we're gonna give Viviana's a try. That sounds great, I would love to hear your opinion and comparison of both. All I have to say is that NeoPax needs to up their game because the current straps get wet and slides off very easily. Plus they need at to least have an additional pouch for excess wires. David that's great to know I'll be sure to purchase some safety pins. Speaking of which URSA has these single pouches where you can hide them on talent. It requires using a safety pin on the waist of the back of the pants, this is especially great for male actors of larger frames. Probably something to consider I believe they run for 15 dollars US but I'm not certain, I know Gotham Sound has and Chicago very own Second City Sound has them.

    Viviana or Ursa?

    Earlier this afternoon I saw the Gotham sound presentation of the Viviana Straps. Like the URSA straps, they have come in beige and black, they are thin and don't heat up like my current Neo Packs. They also both contain a non allergenic polyurethane for extra grip so the pack stays in place and won't slide off from sweat. For the price of $36 US, it's a done deal for me, I also like that it contains a two additional pouches for the excess wires. Who's used these, and what does everyone think of them? Would you prefer these over the URSA's? If you haven't made a decision yet, please take look at Gotham Sound review video here.

    United States Frequencies

    Hello there S4Sound, I found this video a few days ago that contains all the info you need to know about frequency 600. This should give a better idea about what's going on in the States. It also has a pdf of the presentation itself I hope this helps.

    Mics on women

    Hey Ryan Peds, have you ever heard of hide-a-mic microphone concealers? They are really great for when you're using a COS-11 mic. They they come with a hook or a holder you can attach to a bra. They run you about 16 dollars US on eBay or Amazon. Here's a video I found on YouTube video for you to check out. Good luck on your next shoot!

    Ideas for equipment

    That's a pretty sweet deal! I remember that video, funny how it never occurred to me to take this approach. Thanks David I'll keep this in mind! Hey Ryan, This is true when I purchased my Zoom F8 I got through a company called Zzounds, they have a pay as you go plan interest free. Currently as it stands If am to get this next film the weekend of the 2nd-the 4th of February I would have finished paying it off. My hope is to finance a the wireless and some laves so that I can at least start getting better jobs without having to rent or borrow so much gear. Thanks for your advice!

    Ideas for equipment

    Hey anzel2002, Stories like this are fascinating to me, what kind of gear was it? What did you end up purchasing afterwords? Hey Vas, I remember exactly whose youtube channel I was watching but I remember hearing that corporate jobs can purchase certain items for you if you can accept them as payment. I haven't any luck getting these jobs, but on a good note I'm getting close to paying off my paying my audio recorder. My next step is to buy a new or used wireless system, options are Lectrosonics or Zaxcom.
