  1. Ursa Strap

    Been trying to get some waist straps but was it's told that Ursa cannot sell them in the US due to legal issues with Neopax. I have the chest straps and they work very well. Can anyone confirm and/or get a bead on where to get waist straps in the US?
  2. RF Venue 2.4 GHz CP Beam for Zaxnet

    Picking this up again. I'm on a football doc series and could definitely use more zaxnet range on game days. Is this still the best simple solution for now?
  3. Equipment wishes for 2017

    External mix8 support for the Maxx.
  4. Any good A2s in Charleston? Needed 8/18 and 8/25. Documentary series. Send along to me: azw@loopfilmworks.com
  5. DPA Lavaliers and water

    Will this cleaning technique work with a COS-11?
  6. Hey K-Tek: I bought two of the ERX holders with the velcro and 1/4-20 inserts. I have to say, they do not perform as well as I had hoped. 1. Velcro is soft side. Every camera I encounter has soft side on them - in general anything sticking to the camera (TC, IFB) needs to have HARD SIDE velcro on them. Can this be changed? It's unusable as-is this way. 2. The 1/4-20 insert moves around a lot. It is not "solid" - you can rotate the case, so when it is attached to the mount, it still moves back and forth. I think I need to tape it down or something.... Not what I had hoped for. Any suggestions on how to make this better? Avi
  7. Shoot changes dates. Stand down.
  8. I have to leave early on a documentary shoot and production would like to book a solid local mixer for an interview on 5/11. Not sure of there's any verite involved but my sense is that it is just an interview. Interview is critical to the production, they are very selective, as it involves a wrongful conviction case. Email me and I will put in touch with production. azw@loopfilmworks.com
  9. Single earphone

    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?
  10. Lectro Nano

  11. 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.
  12. Run Bag for extra TX

    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.
  13. Maxx+QRX235 QIFB zaxnet?

    +1. I use zaxnet through a qifb all the time from my Maxx. Route it as already stated.
  14. 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
