  1. With that DB-37 connection on the back which outputs all six audio channels as well as provides power for the unit, I wonder who would be able to make a cable for that and for how much $$$. Seems like it would be great to be able to use this is in the bag with the standard connectors on the side, but then be able to grab it and quickly plug in the DB-37 cable to a cart / hook up the antenna connections and have it be a cart rig too.
  2. I believe it was the 1999 "Sawtooth" PowerMac G4 was one of the first computers that had an option both for a Zip drive and DVD-ram drive. I remember CompUSA showing off the DVD capable drives by playing Top Gun on DVD on one of those original Apple Cinema Display (LCD) screens hooked up via this magical new connector called "DVI". High tech stuff!
  3. A comprehensive video on the inauguration's entire sound setup. Seriously, I've reached that point where I truly believe the internet has damn near everything you'd imagine (and then some).
  4. I was very impressed by the film as well (albeit warning for the squeamish, it is EXTREMELY violent in the realistic sense). Desmond Doss' medal of honor citation is a pretty crazy recap of the hell they went through over there.
  5. Ah mystery solved. Thanks.
  6. 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?
  7. 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?
  8. 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.
  9. 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
  10. 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.
  11. Lectrosonics has a little write up about everything as well as links to what's going on.
  12. 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!
  13. Remote Audio does make a DC to USB cable although you'll have to also then hook up a usb micro cable to it.
  14. 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.
  15. 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.
