  1. Transmitter SMA Connector

    Hi Larry Thanks for the clarification. The BEST connector for the job and nothing else in the market that comes close.
  2. Transmitter SMA Connector

    Thanks Mike, but I am looking for the type of connector that Lectro uses for their Transmitter antennas. The centre pin is solder and there is a compression rubber grommet that locks the cable in place.
  3. SRb + PSC Rf Multi SMA?

    From my experience the Src seems to have a more sensitive Rf front end than the 411 when I use it with the RF multi Maybe Larry has some info about this?
  4. Transmitter SMA Connector

    Sorry but that makes absolutely no sense....
  5. Transmitter SMA Connector

    Does anyone here know the make of the SMA Connector that Lectro uses for their transmitter antennas?
  6. Success with Non Approved Series 6 Media

    Like I said dailies are CF. All sorted there. 64 Gb are kind of in between for me. Maybe get 4 days on it. Would be nice to get a whole week and do the dump to back up hard drive at the end of the week. And it seems that the list of approved media hasn't changed or expanded for a long time - some of what is on it is no longer available.
  7. Success with Non Approved Series 6 Media

    Thanks Chris I mate has confirmed that the Lexar 128 Gb 600x SD card works. I bought the 633x and that most definitely does not work ; freeze and locks out that drive
  8. Success with Non Approved Series 6 Media

    I've been looking at getting 128/256 Gb SD cards to use in my 688 and 633 to use as the back up media. The approved SanDisk 128 appears to be no longer available. Is anyone successfully running larger capacity Non Approved SD cards?
  9. sound devices 633 inputs 4-6

    +1 At the risk of being controversial I think the 788 sounds better than the 6xx. But the 6xx is lighter and more power efficient.
  10. sound devices 633 inputs 4-6

    Yes Phil, mic pres would be nice and solve the problem. The size is convenient so I guess that is what drove not having them. Limiting at the transmitter isn't suitable as I don't like the sound of that. It was an issue on one series ; the post dept specifically asked for the ISO levels to be higher. And then you risked clipping. Also, not super happy about ISO levels not being consist across all the tracks. Sorry if I offended any one with my "more professional" comment. Of course SD make professional gear, just don't really understand the thinking behind what was done at the design stage.
  11. sound devices 633 inputs 4-6

    Yep, Im on peak metering. Been that way since before I got my first 442. And yes the "solution" is to under record the ISO tracks. Back to my initial post, I would have preferred to pay more for each unit and have hardware limiters on 4-6/7-12, so that all tracks are equal. I can understand that maybe other users don't see this being that important.
  12. sound devices 633 inputs 4-6

    I have noticed this on both my 633 and 688. Kind of makes those inputs unusable. I would have preferred to pay a bit more to buy and a more professional unit.
  13. Sound Devices 633 Mixer/Recorder Timecode Drift

    Good point Rado. The F5/F55 is better than some in keeping sync. The current fashion is to "go off speed" for transitional elements and this throws the F5 timecode out, with reference to the sound recorder. I now have a Lockit on the camera as a general bit of kit; it saves on the aggravation to the cameraperson and myself that otherwise is needed with the need to rejam after each trip off sync speed.
  14. To confirm the firmware needs to be 6.5.1 or higher to input LTC on the BNC, even though the 6.5 manual says that will take LTC. Had this very issue a few weeks ago - had the camera ops telling me timecode is your (sound) problem so please sort it out!
  15. F5/55 are computers with a lens on the front. As mentioned going off speed drops out the audio and timecode, sometimes the camera needs "rebooting" or power cycling is some functions don't reappear. That's why I consider the audio on the camera is an editorial scratch track with production sound being recorded separately. That way I can concentrate on recording sound not on getting my sound to the camera.
