  1. Ah mystery solved. Thanks.
  2. Love my Stingray Junior as well. I have a similar setup to yours (2x SRb's) BUT with a SD 633. Curious, why does your SRb screen's look different than usual? What's up with those boxes on the screen?
  3. I wish more technology today was this way rather than the usual "planned obsolescence" / short lifespan. You have a TWO YEAR old iPhone??? What are you, a neanderthal?
  4. Just installed it on my 633. Going to test it out today and see how it goes! This is going to be a godsend for this longterm documentary that I'm on now.
  5. Apparently mumbling is "a thing" now (sadly). "Mumblecore is a subgenre of independent film characterized by naturalistic acting and dialogue (often improvised), low-budget film production, an emphasis on dialogue over plot, and a focus on the personal relationships of people in their 20s and 30s." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mumblecore
  6. I don't know if they ever filmed it but according to AES, "Dr. Stockham of Soundstream makes the first 16-bit digital recording in the U.S. at the Santa Fe Opera." in 1976. It looks like "The Last Action Hero" was the first to use the Nagra D.
  7. Lectrosonics has a little write up about everything as well as links to what's going on.
  8. C1 is going to be phased out. As for A1 or B1, I guess it depends on what market you work in mostly? Here in Los Angeles, I seem to have better luck with the A1 lower range. The Sennheiser USA Frequency Finder, although not perfect, is a great way to somewhat check various zip codes of where you might often shoot to see what might be best for you. Then again, now that the 600mhz range is going bye bye, everything might shift around and who knows what will be the best for certain areas!
  9. Remote Audio does make a DC to USB cable although you'll have to also then hook up a usb micro cable to it.
  10. An 8060 generally works great indoors on wide shots or on shoots where there's two cams going "wide and tight" simultaneously. For close coverage I prefer my MKH-50 though.
  11. I'm a bit confused about how many transmitters per receiver (QRX300) you can have using ZHD. It seems that even though it's a "4 channel receiver" that you can only receive 1 transmitter per receiver but with the 200 series you can use 2? Edit: Seems like a new image showing the size of the ZMT3 has appeared on Zaxcom's site.
  12. I wonder how that 614-616mhz buffer is going to behave once things are implemented. Would be nice to keep my block 24 SRb as 2mhz *should* be fine for 2 mics (assuming no one else is using those channels). Since I already own the SRb, would be nice to keep it as a "backup" or at least for use on a show where I needed 2 extra channels of wireless since I already own the gear...
  13. If it is as bulletproof as they claim it is (especially with water), would be nice to have on hand to throw on a camera when needed or to use it in the rain without having to worry about it (especially at that price point).
  14. Oh no, not this whole song and dance again. Can we all just agree that both Lectrosonics and Zaxcom make excellent wireless products which both have their pro's and con's yet both sound great and help get the job done? Do your homework and buy whichever one suits your jobs best, then take the energy you'd normally be using to argue with strangers on the internet about this kind of stuff and try to find jobs that you can actually use your gear of choice on.
  15. If Betso made one of these wireless timecode boxes with a mono scratch mix, I'd instantly buy four of them. Don't the ERX/IFB system use 2.4ghz to broadcast (or Zaxnet rather)? My buddy has a few and the range seemed to be rather limited in comparison to my Lectrosonics IFB transmitter. Right now my solution for timecode and scratch track is to put a Betso box on the camera for timecode, and then I put an old Sennheiser G3 receiver for audio BUT I don't transmit to it via a G3 transmitter. Instead, I tune the G3 receiver to the same frequency as my Lectrosonics IFB transmitter (which is 250mw) and it sounds great believe it or not. Hell, it doesn't even give it justice to call it "scratch" because I've been on productions before where they've used it for their edits.
