    The horse has left that barn

    Still angers me that the FCC did not require any payments to us for having to replace our equipment. I wish I could charge my clients a "FCC Fee" to help cover the cost

    Mercedes Metris OR Chevrolet Express 3/4?

    A camera man I work with has the Metris and its beautiful and very comfortable but yes it is expensive to maintain. If you end up getting the Metris get a 4 wheel alignment after you buy it with all of your gear loaded in to it and put some sand bags in drivers seat area to simulate yourself. He burned though an expensive set of tires in under 10,000 miles due to uneven wear since replacing the tires last year and getting it aligned with all his equipment in it he has had zero issues

    IFB on the cheap.

    Yes in congested areas best to use Freq Finder App and to see if the Comtek RX is locking to any Frequencies before you turn on TX. On the 216 Comtek a blinking red light means it is seeing signal and solid red means no signal detected. Last year I was shooting on the back deck of a house on a mountain outside of a town. I couldn't get more then 20 feet out of my Comtek and it was trying to lock to signal without TX on. I asked owners if they were aware of any cell towers or tv stations near by. They then told me about a few blocks away was a TV station and TV tower.

    you must have been on a dirty frequency with just the bag based TX I get great range. With the Base station and Mighty Mite Antenna I have gotten a couple hundred yards easily

    Lectrosonics SNA 600 Antenna

    I have been doing alot of antenna research the last few weeks and think this is the best choice for me here is my situation: I do mostly fast pace reality work with 4-6 wireless plus a zaxcom hop. I sometimes need to set up farther away from where we are shooting then I would like. I need something that is easy to transport and quick to set up to give me more range. I am in blocks 27 and 21 so I was thinking about buying two of one for each block to increase my range I like that they fold up and the price is also good. I would like some user feedback or suggestions on a better set up. Thanks
  13. Interesting new line of cameras from Sweden some friends are considering shooting something on it. Just sharing with the group http://www.ikonoskop.com/dii/

    Rates & other tips when traveling?

    If I have to travel and shoot the same day especially when flying I bill from when I get to the airport to depart till we are wrapped at hotel after shoot. I only live 10 mins from the airport if your far from airport I would bill from when you depart your house

    My MKH 50 stopped working. Sent to Sennheiser USA....

    You have to pay the Expedite fee for $50 or $75 I don't remember exact amount for them to look at it as soon as they get it if not it takes a few weeks. They are very durable though.

    Favorite CF Card reader with USB 3.0 interface?

    Had these reader for awhile too works great super fast and can dump both cards at once
  23. The people that hire me know they could save a $100-$200 a day sometimes hiring a less experienced mixer with no extra gear or back ups for some straight forward jobs but they don't because they don't want to risk there reputation over a few hundred bucks. I had a simple corporate interview job this week 5 interviews boom only to camera less then 6 hours. I still got $800/10 for gear and labor. The camera guy that hired me could have used his 416 into the camera directly and made another $800 or hired someone else for $500 all in for the day to make $300 extra but he didn't because he charges a good rate and in addition to providing good sound I was also able to help him set up and also helped keep the client out of his hair while he got set up. I am always his first call on jobs that have the budget for sound. Good sound mixers bring much more to the table then just great sound. Bring more to the table and people will pay you more

    There are certain folks I work for that I just never cut once we start rolling because of issues like this.The lack of proper set protocol is terrible though
