    Sony A7s II & ninja flame recorder - timecode isue

    Thank you all for your advise. Ive decide to go with tentacle and their smart Y-cable cable solution (thank you Claus) for my exact set up: https://shop.tentaclesync.com/product/tentacle-microphone-y-adapter-cable-copy/ Not sure if you can monitor only one channel (scratch track) on this Sony camera? If not - thought luck. At least I'm covered with TC sync and Tentacle soft will do the syncing for me. Movegear looks cool as well, but tentacle is just amazingly easy in set up and use. The company's customer service is also first class.

    Sony A7s II & ninja flame recorder - timecode isue

    Thanks for you reply. Claus, the scrach track is for playback on set, watching dailies but mainly for editing and in case of a some disaster with my equipment - a fold back recording on the camera. with your custom cable - do you not get bleeds from the TC signal onto the production sound track? Also wonder if Tentacle sync software for syncing would work ok with such set up? Steve, yes its shocking that this camera dosn't even have the ability to jam it manually (then at least I could do it at the start of every day with 24h run mode and hope for constant offset between TC on my 633 and the camera) However, we all know that those cameras are here to stay and will only appear more often in hour work. Any other ideas and suggestions greatly appreciated. unfortunately, using a slate (which would be my responsibility) on a run and gun style show is asking for trouble i'm affraid..
  3. Hi there, I'm about to start a long running shoot for a documentary. The production've decided to go with 2 Sony A7s II with ninja flame recorder. I've researched both the net and the manuals of the camera/ninja and can't find a definite answer to my question - Is there a way to jam, input or output timecode from this camera set up? I'm using SD633, sending a scratch track mix to the camera using Senn G3. Time code wise - I was planning to buy Tentacle box and use it to jam my 633, then put it on the camera/recorder, as a TC generator. I could record TC on an audio track on camera, using tentacle, but then i cant feed the camera with my ref mix through Senn receiver. I would like to record a scratch track on the camera for many reasons though. Who has an experience with this set up and can recommend a solution? if there is one...or is it that you can't jam, feed or tale TC from sony and ninja? Thanks

    Lectrosonics SRb with Sennheiser SK2000 transmitter

    Thats exactly what I'm planning to do. I want to go Lectro way in the future but a year ago I've spent $1500 for the 2 seen 2000, which by the way have served me very very well. because of higher output power, their reach is way better than the ew100 and the bateries last 6-8 hours no problem. they work great as camera hop and IBF for the director. I dont want to get rid of the but I dont have an extra $3000 for new lectro. Buying just SR would allow me to add the lecrtro tx in the future and still use my senn for IBF or as spare systems. Would anyone else who has both Lestro SR and Senn 2000 SK tx ( G2 5000 SK plugin) care to do a short test and share the results? Thanks

    Lectrosonics SRb with Sennheiser SK2000 transmitter

    Thanks for the input Crussell. That doesnt sound to good. curious to find out weather anything changed in SRb rx in comparison to 401 in the way modulation mode works with other tx brands?

    Lectrosonics SRb with Sennheiser SK2000 transmitter

    Anyone used that set-up and care to share some thoughts?

    Lectrosonics SRb with Sennheiser SK2000 transmitter

    Thanks Larry. I work without the battery indicator now and don't find it a problem. Senn ew series have very good battery life. So what are those imperfections in the 2000 series emulation. Can anyone give specyfic examples? Is it the same for G2 500 SKp transmitter? Thanks
  8. I'm looking into whether anyone has any experience using the compatibility mode on Lectrosonics SRb receivers with the Sennheiser 2000 and G2500 (plug-on) transmitters. I've got 2 of the 2000 bodypack tx and one plug-on which i now use with the senn. ew g3 receivers, however i"m considering adding Lectro SRb receiver for better range and to go Lectro way in the future. The questions I hope to get the answers for are: 1. will these 2 particular combination work and what might be the shortcomings of pairing the 2 systems? 2.is there a sound quality loss when compared to using the original, dedicated receivers? 3. How easy is the operation of the SR in that set-up? Are all the information on the lcd, like RF strenth bar, bateries power? 4. How much more range can I gain compared to senn ew100 receivers? 5.Can I use an antena with the SR to receive signal from both G2 500 plug-on and sk2000 tx? Do you use one antena or need 2- one for each tx? Thanks Bartek

    Rycote Windshield Kit for sennheiser 8060

    THank you Rado. I take it you use it with conbox one, not the MZL conbox? Plenty for the MZF filter to fit in?

    Rycote Windshield Kit for sennheiser 8060

    thanks to all I know there's the Rycote MZL system 2 especially for 8060 but I dont want to pay extra over $100 for it. I think rycote system 1 could be too tight a squeeze but i'd like the mic to fit in the system#2: http://www.bhphotovi...ield_Kit_2.html So one question is: it possible to fit the 8060 in the $569 kit 2 with conbox 1 or is it only the MZL conbox that makes it possible to fit this mic in a kit 2 basket? also: I'd like to know if the non-MZL WS kit2 will fit the 8060 with the xlr module and MZF filter or just the xlr module? thanks

    Rycote Windshield Kit for sennheiser 8060

    I'm talking about the rycote new modular system. Says kit 2 fits mics up to 160mm while 8060 is 175 With the Xlr module but I've heard people using it anyway and not having any issues. Can anyone confirm? Thanks

    Rycote Windshield Kit for sennheiser 8060

    Hallo, Was wandering if the Rycote Windshield Kit #1 will fit sennheiser 8060? Does anyone use that combination or is kit 2 better for this mic. Just want to know how far I can go with minimizing the size of my boom without compromising quality Thanks

    recording a diver in a sea - placing a trx

    thank you all for your valuable input. I'm now sure not to attempt putting my tx down there and into a risk. also I feel wiser and more confident to explain to the producer (who says "it can def be done") why i'm not sending any of my equipment 15m down. I also spoke to the divers and they will try to get a special suit with the communication system for my to tap into. thanks again to you all
