  1. Let's see your lavaliere kit!

    exactly, they're makeup covers. never actually used them but somehow have a pile of them from years of using MKE-2's
  2. Let's see your lavaliere kit!

    I've got two lav kits that I travel with. The main one is in an Ikea toiletries bag http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80323058/ It houses extra capsules, moleskin, topstick, fur for wind protection, undercovers, overcovers, zip ties, velcro, alcohol swabs, belts pouches for transmitters, bobby pins, a lav bullet, some gaff tape, lav hardwire adapters, and my fly fishing tackle box with all the little lav doo dads. http://www.gandermountain.com/modperl/product/details.cgi?pdesc=Plano-Compact-Side-Side-Tackle-Box-1070&i=441754 The other smaller bag is what I keep on me at all times, it has extra topstick, transpore, bobby pins, pre cut fur for wind protection, alcohol swabs, and I use a lav belt pouch to store it all in. it fits in the exterior pouch on my Orca sound bag.
  3. Substitute for Denecke TC Tooolbox

    Movie Slate can output timecode via the headphone jack on the iphone but it's not as simple and elegant as the TC Toolbox app was.
  4. Zuca Boom op cart

    I'm modding a Zuca bag/ cart myself so I started a facebook group where other people using Zuca products for sound can share ideas and figure out what works and what doesn't. All are welcome. I personally can't wait to have a design for myself that's worthy of sharing in the gallery of sound carts one day. https://www.facebook.com/groups/1595929987382210/
  5. Lectro PDR, not Lectro PMR

    I see it can accept timecode on the 5 pin lemo, does it also output the device's time code? I read the manual and it really only talks about jamming but if outputs as well, I can use it as a sync box in a pinch too. Would make it a great all around problem solver.
  6. Headphone Switcher

    I have one of these in my bag for switching between two cameras' returns. It's high quality and has held up for some time now. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/748807-REG
  7. Line Audio Omnis

    Check out some of the back episodes of the Tonebenders Podcast. One of those guys has some and loves them. http://tonebenderspodcast.com/ I use the CM-3's on toms all the time and love them but it's not exactly a field scenario.
  8. MK41 mics into an M10?

    You're probably going to need an additional box in either case. The M-10 can't provide phantom power so you'll need a MixPre as Chris said. And the DR-100 blows through batteries with two phantom powered mics so you'll need some sort of powering setup.
  9. What's your favorite on-camera mic?

    I like the ME64 too. Especially if they're mostly on wide lenses on a doc.
  10. Windows 10

    If you're interested, Sonic Talk was able to sit down with Pete Brown from Microsoft to talk audio and Midi on Win10:

  13. Any Lectro rumors?

    Oh fun, let's start some! I'll go first: All those April Fools pranks were real products in development.
  14. Sennheiser MKE2's

    MKE-2s have steel strands in them making them quite strong but when they get kinked, they tend to keep that shape. Much like a paperclip, I've found you can just grab them with both hands and bend them back. They mostly go back straight.
  15. lav bullet

    Got a false positive on a swab of my audio bag last year going through Pre. Things got interesting... Long story short, I was reassembling the bag after the TSA agent tore out each and every cable and component and inspected them individually one at a time. And I was almost as thoroughly searched myself...
