    Bag work mainly.
  1. Hi Scott, hope you find a solution. I'm about to get one of these chargers and wondered what the appeoximate charge time for the 98Wh Batt is? Regards Steve.
  2. Me too. Maybe SD will have something at NAB?
  3. Thanks TJW. Does it ship with cover plates for empty slots? I plan on only using 2 initially. Cheers, Steve
  4. Thanks for the info. I guess I'm surprised that more of us aren't using it. Looks like a great setup to me. Very tidy bag there Anas! Regards, Steve.
  5. Around 1200 US. Usual places.
  6. Hi all, I am building a new bag/ kit and was wondering if anyone is using one of these? It looks like it fits somewhere between the SD 688/SL-6 and Zaxcom Micplexer 2. It will slot easily into the Orca OR-32 Bag I plan to buy too. Im planning on using it with Lectro SRc's Any experiences or opinions welcome! Thanks, Steve Ravich Sydney AU.
  7. Thanks Scott, we have 4 LT's at the ABC here in Sydney AU. The Shooters seem very happy with them. If you look on the right hand side(Pic 3) there is a small door with a USB port. Its meant for a Panasonic dongle that enables WiFi access to various functions and I think live pics. We are ordering some so i'll report back later. We have made our own mounts for the Camera mic and use Ambient V-Lock boxes for the SR receivers. The Tentacle Sync boxes fit nicely on those too. Having easy access to the menus via the monitor is really good but the positioning of all relevant inputs/outputs on the side is even better! Its also handy for keeping the sand off my 816 ;)) Cheers, Steve Ravich ABC TV Sydney AU
  8. I have been using the k-tek kswb1 waist belt with the OR30 bag for some time now. I have a 633, 3 lectro 411 and ancillary crap in the bag. This system works well for me. I always have a shoulder strap attached and occasionally use it for added support. Its quick and easy to attach and detach the OR 30. The only improvement I would like to see is a wider waist belt. Something along the lines of a kite/wind surfing waist harness. Regards Steve.
  9. Thanks Dave, looking forward to seeing it. I was also wondering if you have included loops on the belt to hang Accessory pouches etc? Thanks. Steve
  10. Hey Dave, I stopped using a harness many years ago and prefer wearing the bag around my waist. As the Stingray and orca bags are now rigid the new waistbelt, as modeled by yourself on FBook, would be all I need. Are K-Tek releasing these as part of the harness system or separately? Thanks, Steve, Sydney AU.
  11. Sorry, yes I did mean the SL-6. Thanks Steve
  12. Having read the draft 688 manual I can not find any reference to how the output of the CL-6 is assigned on the 688. Does it create an additional menu page(s) when connected? Thanks Steve
  13. Surely some of you have heard of DFI? 2 DFI'S equal an NFI... Steve
  14. I have just been dealing with Tech Trust Japan ( while looking into hiring Lectro gear for a shoot coming up soon. They were extremely helpful and seem to have a good range of gear. Jiro sent me this info regarding the licencing requirements there now. I thought the group would find it useful. "The RF radio law has changed recently, and we are in transition period now. The following 3 frequency bands are available in Japan now. 1) New Law *A band*: *470 MHz - 714 MHz. *Need a technical certificate and a license to use the equipment. 2)**Old Law *A band*: *779.125 MHz - 787.875 MHz* and *797.125 MHz - 805.875*. Need a technical certificate and a license to use the equipment. 3) *B band: **806.125 MHz - 809.75 MHz*. Need a technical certificate but *NO license* to use the equipment." Transmitter RF o/p limited to 10mW in al cases. As yet they do not have any "A Band" Lectro gear but I assume its coming soon. Licencing requirements should be done through your fixer and, Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications 総務省 Rikujyou-ka 3rd section 陸上3課 tel: 03-6238-1785 Regards Steve Ravich, Sound Recordist ABC TV Sydney AU.
  15. You can also try Sennheiser Japan. I Hired 2 Units from them in 2010. They were the small single AA Tx's with standard Senn Rx's. Steve
