  1. Viviana or Ursa?

    Whatever you are gonna buy, they will do the job.
  2. Wireless Mic and Recorder

    Hi, Maybe Hong Kong isn't a market for 134,290 HKD recorder. Same can be said for here (GR).
  3. Once happened to me with 633. Free Run, 1 hour the recorder was off.
  4. When Production doesn’t rent your kit

    Draw a line. Say to the production - it's ok to not rent my gear, but you have to rent A recorder, A wireless, A accessories bla bla (aka your "gear" from different provider). Because you are familiar with that kit, because you produce X quality with that gear and because the project require that gear. At the final stage, you can negotiate the price between your kit and X provider. Always bring your headphones.
  5. Wireless

    BTW, @login has bought WiSycom

  7. Alexa Mini TC sync

    I did a commercial yesterday with ARRI Alexa Mini. ARRI Alexa Mini Firmware: 5.2.17 Sound Devices 633 (latest firmware) Free Run 25 FPS At 08.00 morning we did a jam sync from 633 to Mini (REGEN). After 35 minutes running (with REGEN setting), timecode decided to started from, again. We decided to change from REGEN to PRESET (after jamming). The good thing about the new firmware (5.2.17) is: - From 100 FPS to 25 FPS there was no freezing (like older firmware). After FPS change, timecode was the same as 633. - Break 30 minutes; camera off. After break time, timecode was there like 633 (ok, good camera internal battery). Note: Project Frame Rate and Timecode Frame Rate must be the same (into camera).
  8. Today, I have experienced a nightmare in a cooking show. Wireless & Induction Kitchen Some sort info's: Wireless was Sennheiser G3 (626 MHz - 688 MHz) and G2 (780 MHz - 822 MHz). Lavaliers was DPA 4061. I know, 780 MHz - 822 MHz isn't very good here; but usable. The kitchen was without any extra furniture, so the whole system (below glass surface) was expsosed (not visible to camera of course). When the chef was turned on the kitchen for cooking; wireless went crazy, both of them. The sound was something like huge noise gate, plus extreme denoise, plus extreme compression. Like RF swallow into black hole (use your imagination). I did everything from my side; changing frequencies, changing lavaliers, changing everything with all combinations. Same story: No bueno. Booming was not possible; yes you thinked correctly, extremely wide shoot (master camera) plus exterior (45 meters away was passing a train every 4 minutes). So everyone went crazy because of "sound problem", the kitchen nightmare; not the train nightmare. I have asked a simple question, if we had that kitchen from previous season. Guess, the answer was "no". And the story goes crazy. Next time, cooking show, I will ask what type of kitchen will be. After "where", "when" (and why in my inner thoughts).
  9. Sound Devices MixPre-3 vs Zoom F4

    I would buy sooner or later the MixPre-3. One boom - Two wireless - EXT Timecode. 90% of my jobs is one - two wireless and one boom. For the needs of atmos bla bla I have three mic preamps / ORTF TRI (three CCM's or MKH 8040). Plus Wingman App if I need to go fancy and sexy (hehe). For 4 wireless and more needs; then I would consider the F8 or something else.
  10. Sony FS7

    You can't advertise the "ultimate docu camera" and you don't include timecode I/O. Just saying.
  11. Induction Kitchen Nightmare

    Hi Ilari, I tried a starquad cable from receiver to recorder; still no bueno. The problem was from transmission side (tx and lavalier). I wonder if I had a digital wireless, things was better; but I don't know.
  12. The "Best client/producer/agency quotes" thread

    Yes, Simon. I am not going to make "experiments" (last minute) with dialogue in an entire cooking show, because the editor it's lazy and without post audio.
  13. The "Best client/producer/agency quotes" thread

    Director wanted from me to record a slow motion audio. What can I answer to that? Tell me. Hahaha How many times, Christian. How many times...
  14. The "Best client/producer/agency quotes" thread

    - Can you record audio at 50 FPS and not in 25 FPS? Goosebumps
  15. New Sound Devices Products

    Me too. For a second...
  16. Show me your bag

    So, you have that bread, actually, David. Hehe
  17. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    Banks here has been failed before the "speculation" has been driven the people to wait in ATM's. Wrong example, but I understand what you mean.
  18. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    Let's not start here; again, this discussion. Please. We have already discussed this over two years.
  19. Ursa Pro Mini AES not working

    It's a miracle itself accepting audio, Blake.
  20. View From The Office:

    Breaking Bad? Hehe
  21. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    I was trying to translate that "move" from Sound Devices. It's a really smart strategic move. Leave the "wireless" story in the corner for one minute. Sound Devices they have two offices in EU. One in Berlin and one in UK. My first question: Does that mean UK office will provide service support? My second question: Does that mean UK office will become a distributor and the other partners will become resellers? This is a good news for UK market. Sound Devices they don't sell only 633 or 688, but also video products (which is a bigger market). In terms of wireless story: The guys at Sound Devices are not fools. Of course will continue to support other wireless brands. I am not expecting something new in professional territory for 2 or 3 years from now. They already have the new A10 line. Maybe, we will see a wireless system in prosumer territory; like MixPre-3 / MixPre-6 product line. The competition here is high; Sennheiser G4, Sony UWP-D etc.
  22. Sound Devices acquires Audio, wow!

    Maybe, this is the first time in history of production sound industry, someone buys other company in that scale. Let's see what the future will bring!
