  1. More from Peter Jackson and The Hobbit

    48fps is doable with the current generation of D-Cinema projectors, which more and more theaters have converted to.
  2. Which Furman for a cart?

    Before settling on a Furman 1215, did look briefly into SurgeX's line. Looks pretty solid. http://www.surgex.com/products/sx1115rt.html
  3. Tonkarre Sound Cart

  4. BBG issues

    The B5D is great for interiors. If you need more wind protection, Scheops makes the W20 R1; http://posthorn.com/S_pops.html#w20r1
  5. How to silence a leather jacket

    You might not even have a problem with the jacket. I did a film 2 years ago where the main character wore a leather jacket. It was for two scenes, and both scenes he was wired. I didn't have an issue at all with leather noise, or the zipper.
  6. Schoeps CMC4 Question

    You probably won't need the pad, but the CUT1 filter I suggest you get in addition to the GVC Swivel.
  7. CMIT and the MKH50

    I had a KMR81, but had problems with gain very similar to what Tony has been experiencing with the CMIT. I sold it and got a CS3e and have been happy ever since.
  8. RastOrder SU Cart

    Another satisfied Rastorder SU user here! You won't regret it!
  9. First job - Bathroom recording

    White noise? Sounds like RF hits to me.
  10. Which microphones do you carry on your kit?

    The Film edition Oktava is the included low cut filter, which is a fairly recent addition to the Oktava line. They use to ship with a screw on -10dB pad.
  11. Sanken COS 11 cable noise

    Interesting suggestion Larry, I'll have to give that a shot. I always assumed that one of the reasons for putting a loop or two about an inch or two away from the head was to isolate the cable noise, in addition to giving the mic some strain relief.
  12. Sanken CS3e

    They can be had on the used market, you just have to wait for a while. I'm going through a similar situation with Block 25 411a receivers....
  13. Battery photos.

    Richard, I beleive I used 14 guage wire.
  14. My Macbook modified DC adapter doesn't work - now what?

    Might not be practical, but you might want to isolate the computer power from the rest of your equipment by using a second gel cell ( or whatever battery you use ) and run the computer off that. I've read posts from others using even hard drive recorders like the DV824 running into this.
  15. Battery photos.

    I built a Pelican battery last year and it's worked out very well so far. Pelican 1300 case, LifeLine 33AH AGM Battery, 15A DC Circuit Breaker, and two Speakon Connectors. I used foam shims to keep the battery from moving around inside the case. Pretty easy to put together, takes an afternoon to do.
