    Working hard, everyday.
    Proud father to triplets!
  1. A cameraman friend of mine was asking me for a recommendation on a quality single earphone for him to use while shooting - for monitoring. He does mostly verite doc work. Anyone got a recommendation?
  3. In the verite doc world I get the camera all the time. At the the start of any day I hook up the timecode and any hops, I set the levels, and it all happens pretty quickly.
  4. I use lens pouches for both extra transmitters and extra lavs. Those can go on either the waist belt of the harness or attach to the drawstring of a parachute bag by clc. The parachute bag is an excellent run bag - lots of sections, top loading.
  5. +1. I use zaxnet through a qifb all the time from my Maxx. Route it as already stated.
  6. Be advised - an ERX feeding an Amira will experience intermittent link status on the ERX if the camera's Bluetooth is on. To the Bluetooth off, use the side setup menu, not the one in the eyepiece. azw
  7. And then there's this:
  8. I'm interested, but am I mistaken or does the application require OSHA certifications and "800 MPIPH hours?" How could one possibly get all that done in the next 5 days?
  9. Shooting on this? I have the cable.
  10. The only person I've ever seen DOUBLE BOOM while wearing a bag is Theresa Radke. That's right, a boom in each hand, getting sound from opposite sides of a room on a feature doc job. azw
  11. Yes I basically got a free transmitter. No they did not ask for the unit. It was dead as far as I knew. I notified the producer right when it happened (talent dropped it in the potty) and then put the cost of a new one on my Invoice. No questions asked.
  12. Same thing happened to me with a zax tx. I took the batteries out, dried it out and threw it In my bag. Production paid for a new one. A few weeks later I took the old one out and put new batteries in. It fired up! I then sent it off to zaxcom for a checkup. Got It back and I use it all day the time now, no issues.
  13. I had an issue like this, but worse. Pitch shift and all. TC stuff. Send it back to Zax - they replaced my DSP board. azw
  14. Tascam HD-P2. Can chase Timecode.
  15. To me, all of that has nothing to do with being a filmmaker, and that's the problem. How about writing a script? :
