  1. The NEW Standard in Broadcast Wireless Has Been Set :D

    2700$ for a kit, that does sound pro..
  2. German rates?

    Ah didn't know that is the case in Germany. In the Netherlands you have to have a VAT number if you invoice. Exception is if you pay for something upfront, like parking fees or other travel expenses.
  3. German rates?

    Yeah, I am assuming that is the case if one is invoicing already.
  4. German rates?

    No VAT involved if you invoice to a company in another EU country.
  5. Sennheiser AVX any good?

    The avx system is NOT in the 2.4 ghz range. It's in 1.8 ghz I believe.
  6. I have the same problem this week with iPad and MacBook (safari, chrome). At the moment iPhone works, hence this post. Will check if emptying cache will work.
  7. Zoom F8

    I don't use the limiters, they are post input. Headroom is great, no problems. More problems with my transmitters overloading because the doc is about Syrian refugees, lots of screaming Arab all of the sudden dont know what went wrong with your gig, was is it unstable drift or an constant 2/3 seconds offset? When the zoom drifts after power sycle it can go easily to 20/30 seconds.

    Hi Glenn, to alaborate more about my workflow; yes we sync the cameras continually with tc because they are C300s, thus useless regarding stand alone TC. The moments I had to sacrifice the tentacle sync I have constantly attached to the f8 for an extra camera I had no problems whatsoever with tc, as long as the f8 stays on (it will run for more than a day on a np1 by the way). This is in line with other users, and zoom is aware of this flaw and are acknowledging it, no way to correct this with firmware because it is of the lack of an internal battery to keep the tc. For another shooting we did a workflow test with an alexa and the f8, especially for tc (without tc boxes, just the build ins). Yet again, the f8 was completely capable to hold tc, just like the alexa, for about the day we did the test. Mixing is shit, unless you like mixing on an iPad/iPhone. My projects with the f8 are one man boom(mix) shoots, so I provide a basic mix for scratch and director. Isos for post. This is actually what I am doing as well when I am working with 688 or 633 for that matter (alone). Can't really mix and boom properly anyways.
  9. Zoom F8

    What are you talking about? There is plenty of real world usage out of this. Including myself. Search Facebook for some groups. Don't have some pics myself but plenty of them there. since beginning of this year I do a documentary shooting with one of them, as stated above. When starting in February it was freezing cold here in Istanbul, and a couple of weeks ago it was quite exotic on the island of Malta when shooting with it. I guess I shot about 30 days so far with it on this project. It's not mine, it's the production company's so it gets a lot of "abuse" since it's not owned by a individual if you catch my trill. All working flawlessly, post not complaining about timecode or sound quality and personally I am very fond of the device, finally a good solid low budget solution with TC, metadata pfl etc. sometimes it felt a bit crazy to gear all up with a dozen of lectrosonics, sd 668, and the likes and the DOP shows up with a 4000 dollar dslr kit... With a zoom f8 as centerpiece you got a decent low budget kit with very little compromise, if at all.
  10. Zoom F8

    I'm shooting a doc right now with a f8 from the production company. When I continuously jam both the cameras and the f8 with Tentaclesync it stays perfectly in sync. On one occasion there was an extra camera and I put the TS from my bag to one of them and my F8 stayed in sync, till you power it down. There is no internal battery to keep the tc going so that's why. I'm talking about 2 days of 12 hours total, I kept the zoom on for 3/4 hours and rejamed after power down/ up.
  11. Zaxcom and AudioLTD digital wireless - the future

    what about post? Does 32 gives them enough room to play with before hitting a ceiling? If I take a photo with my mirror less camera on medium and high jpg, it looks the same. But if I try to do some fiddling in Photoshop I obviously have a bit more room with the higher jpg setting. Doesn't it work the same with kHz thus there is still an use for 96khz in music production, though it will master to 41 or 48 anyways. Just wonder what 32 gives in that respect.
  12. Double booming, but not what you think.

    How you guys get away in general with boom on stand? I find that I have to position the mic too far away for my taste to get a good compromise for off axis handling. If I know the interview will last less than an hour I will boom it by hand. Most interviews break anyway if they are longer.
  13. Zoom looses tc if you power it down. When powered it's constant enough to be the source. What I've read here on the board is that the mini is drifting though. Meaning a constant sync with a cable is basically the only option if you don't have lockits.
  14. Which blimp to get?

    I have the Reinhardt one, like it. You are right about handling noise though. I do like the foam only concept of it. What did you change about the mount?
