  1. zaxcom zmt rf dropouts. preston interference, etc

    What's your distro / antenna situation? Can't say i've had issues with Prestons and Zaxcom's and I'm all wideband low. I have more problems with the noisy stages in Greenpoint. Haha!
  2. Ursa Strap

    You can buy the thigh straps in the US, but I don't think they can sell the ankle and waist straps in the US.
  3. Alexa Mini TC sync

    Bill, where did you get the swanky right angle lemo cable for the mini that points up?
  4. iPower 520 Mah Li-Poly for FREE

    I'll definitely take some if they're still available.
  5. Zaxcom recording wireless at work

    Glenn, what's extra awesome is that I was able to program in multiple Zaxnet frequencies on the ERX. So I had each transmitter broadcast a different Zaxnet frequency and then could cycle through each transmitter on the ERX to QC them individually. Very helpful.
  6. Zaxcom recording wireless at work

    Makes sense. I did something similar, although on a smaller scale, for the documentary Rats. We had to steal some shots in Vietnam so I used recording transmitters in record only mode and I wore a recording transmitter with a DPA lav in a baseball cap for ambience. Listened off an ERX in my pocket with earbuds when wiring people up and would occasionally walk by talent while filming to make sure the mic still sounded good. Worked great! In the final product, you can tell the switch between the A7S that we shot on in Vietnam vs the Arri Mini we used for the rest of the film, but the sound is consistent throughout the film. Good stuff and it totally saved my bacon. We were supposed to be able to bring our whole sound and camera package but that fell through, so we had to scramble. We were flying in from Cambodia, so not chance of getting other gear. Luckily all my wireless was Zaxcom, so I just snuck in a few transmitters and an ERX into my carry on and was able to get on with it. Production was incredibly happy and grateful.

    I know John has 2 RX12's so he was probably able to monitor most of it.

    John D'Aquino is a smart dude. Kudos!
  9. New Zaxcom small transmitter - ZMT

    Excellent work, Gene!
  10. Show me your bag

    For your second QRX, get a 235 w/ QIFB. That way, you can jam your transmitters with Zaxnet, control gain and frequency from the QRX's and use ERX's. That's how I run my 633 bag.
  11. New Zaxcom small transmitter - ZMT

    4063 is what Zaxcom recommends, although I've also had good luck with 4060 slims.
  12. URSA Straps Review

    I've been wanting to try these. Happy to hear that they might be available in the states soon.
  13. QL-1 rig with Rx-12, Nomad, and Deva

    I know this is an older thread, but this is a very cool cart. Too big for my purposes, but very slick.
  14. DPA SLIM for ZAXCOM

    I'm also interested in this. I've had mixed experiences with the snorkel.
  15. DUGAN for the 633!! Firmware update 4.50!!

    It's definitely a bit of work to take apart. I have a Nomad, micplexer 2, and two QRX's ready to go in another bag and I plan on adding another QRX200 to the Nomad bag this year. Either that or sell the two QRX200's and micplexer and get an Rx12. The RX12 is pretty heavy, so I wouldn't bag it often, but it would make it super quick to change from nomad in a bag to Nomad on a cart. Since I run my wireless AES in my Nomad bag it would be one audio cable and a few serial cables to switch between bag and cart. Still deciding. As it stands now, I already have power cables and audio cables set up for two additional QRX's in my Nomad bag. So all Inhave to do is pull the QRX100's from my 633 bag and put them in my Nomad bag since I have separate cable setups in each bag. They're all held together with dual lock so it's not too bad moving them around, but I wouldn't wanna have to do it in a hurry. I'm with you, Rado. I prefer going AES and it really saves weight on cabling. Even still, this bag is between 7 and 8 lbs. I only have a bathroom scale, so can't get too precise.
