    bluetooth sound box

    Wirecutter has researched hundreds of reasonably-priced portable Bluetooth speakers. But I don’t think anything is going to top the DemerBox for production use, that thing is impressive.

    Oscar Sound Tech-lavs Re-visited.

    I’m seeing $150 USD when terminated for Lectros, from Pro-Sound in New York.

    Oscar Sound Tech-lavs Re-visited.

    Hope it’s okay to resurrect this old thread – how are OST-801/OST-802 users finding the mic these days, when in use? Was considering Trams as my first lavs until now. Also, anyone know where to find audio samples of the mic online?
  4. Love the stories posted here. Amen to Philip’s response. The best film professor at the school I attended is, on paper, an industry has-been. But he’s anything but a burnout when it comes to his passion about filmmaking and teaching. He’s prolific at getting core concepts to stick in the minds of his students, to the point where it mattered little that our underfunded department’s equipment was older than many students. People made good work. Best of all, he really loves his students and his passion for film rubs off on everyone he’s taught. Perhaps the notion that “those who can’t do, teach” is true, but I think it’s completely irrelevant when there are people learning.

    Something is up with the HTTPS version of the site…

    I remember you use DonorBox to accept donations on your Weebly website – I also use it for nonprofit stuff, and fortuitously, they launched weekly and annual payment options earlier today, in addition to the monthly option they already had. Oh, and it turns out you have the annual option already enabled on your DonorBox page!

    Off topic, but I’ve been wondering – is there currently a way to set up recurring donations to you? Otherwise I just have an annual calendar reminder to donate $12.

    Paging @Jeff Wexler, in case he hasn’t seen this yet.

    Rechargeable Batteries for TX

    Ah, I understand. Thanks for clarifying.

    Rechargeable Batteries for TX

    What issues do you personally encounter, exactly? I’m aware of Rado’s critique about the shielding, but I’ve quite literally seen nothing but praise about these batteries on this forum. IKEA’s website displays availability, though it’s not as up-to-date as the info you get from calling IKEA at +1 (888) 888-4532.

    Rechargeable Batteries for TX

    What’s the next best thing to the IKEA LADDA 2450 batteries today? The sole IKEA store in my state doesn’t have them, and an IKEA USA rep tells me most of their Midwest stores (Illinois, Indiana, Ohio, Wisconsin) are no longer ordering stock. Wondering if there’s a similarly economical alternative, short of hiring someone on Craigslist in Los Angeles to ship some LADDAs.

    Zoom F8n.

    How would anyone get a return on investment on a Cantar then?

    Deity Microphones going Wireless

    If they’re going to stay a budget brand, I’d like to see them improve upon Sennheiser’s G3/G4 bodypacks. All-metal hardware, ability to connect different antennas, better dynamic range, and digital transmission. Oh, and timecode, since these budget systems usually end up as camera hops. At the same time, I’d like it to be as small as the G3/G4 (cough RodeLink cough), with its locking connectors, and its easy user experience. If I can dream, then I want some all Zaxcom-level benefits at a lower price.

    Haha, I dislike running websites myself for this reason. It’s a dark art.

    Good time to change control panel and FTP passwords at the web host as well. And while on the topic of HTTPS, I’d love it if this forum used it. I use Cloudflare for my websites and it’s free and easy to setup SSL/HTTPS security.
