  1. This could be me & my foldup cart...

    Thank you Nate, I would like to see what you did. I try to please everybody, but its impossible... So I like to see how my carts are adapted by users.

    These dual monitor brackets for the foldup seem to be breeding. Everyone's making them except me... Pete has just come up with another fine solution. Nice one.

    Thanks Kristian. Seems your not so bad at making things either.

    Hi Derek. The rear upright bars are 25 x 25 mm square tube with 3mm wall thickness. The socket on the top removable half shelf also has 3mm wall thickness and is strongly welded. You would need to be conservative in the amount of weight you put on it. I think the thing to watch is that excessive weight might bend the rear upright outwards. Thereby making the uprights too wide to fit the top half shelf back on. If you get my drift. In which case you might have to bend it back - either using the said top half shelf or a rubber hammer (lightly). Rob

    If the top half shelf gets in the road you can take it off - or move it.

    By the way - CJ has gone and bought his own Foldup - Must have liked it. If you need a bigger landing pad for your mixer bag. Top 2 folding shelves can be swapped.
  7. Which Schoeps mics for documentaries?

    People often take a breath before they talk. People often nod their head back & forth a bit when they want to but in. I'd be practicing your booming techniques & hopefully you will work with a shooter who understand fluidity of frame lines. A wider pattern will make it easier to cover a wider area without going off mic. A narrower pattern will generally give you more reach. Me - had 2 416's & 2 816"s till I fell in love with a Sanken CS3.
  8. I found myself doing this a fair few times over the course of my career, mostly with mobile camera people. Always used a line level Comtek, often out of the headphone output on the board, which was often not being used. Comtek frequency never bothered my wireless link to camera.
  9. Quick release wheels - 16" & 20" now available from RastOrder as an accessory. See http://www.rastorder.com.au/otherproduct.htm Axle bush thread length is 38mm & thickness is 18mm.
  10. RastOrder Cart: SU-01V

    The long and the short of it - SU cart & SU Compact cart.
  11. This could be me & my foldup cart...

    Stephen Cabana just bought Foldup 126. Still amazes me how many work-flow setups people do on this cart, Stephens shown me another. Oh and that's boom op CJ sitting at the cart, reading a script...
  12. RastOrder RMC Cart

    RastOrder News... The RMC cart is returning. It will largely be a title for variants, i.e. bottom module variant 1 & top module variant 3 etc. This seems to me a way to take on some personal design work flows for people. Please understand I am not really interested in re-inventing the wheel, or completely designing your workflow to suit some imaginary cart. There are plenty of good cart designs for sale out there. If you don't want one of mine. Or you can build one yourself. Below is a modified SU cart I built for a Video Assist operator. I call it RMC variant Bottom mod1/top mod 1... Thank you for your interest.
  13. Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    This is another example of slates used. I ran this one for a year on a current affairs program. We travelled extensively worldwide. (A bit like 60 minutes) This shot was taken somewhere in Los Angeles. Probably 70% of work was interviews, so I never had the Nagra hanging on my shoulder that often Slate was a bit heavy, however you can see I am not loaded down with radio mics & other stuff, just 10 D cells inside the Nagra 4.2. I never used it for documentary style shooting. Don't even remember where I bought it.
  14. Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    While I am at it here is an add for the "electronic" slate I used a lot then. It flashed the number and a light above the number and fed a burst of corresponding tone to the Nagra (or it activated the Nagra tone) simultaneously. Pity I threw it out!!! I also often used a single hand slate, particularly in remote unfriendly environments.
  15. Nagra Stories Sound-men won’t ever tell

    Here are some pictures of my IS Nagra, with its cover. I used this Nagra as my main & my backup machine for many years. A bit like how I felt on the day. It never gave me any trouble. I bought it second hand and it had already had a working life, probably just ran it in. It did not come with a cover so after a bit of deliberation I took it to a local canvas sewer. She worked out this simple solution. Rachel, this might give you some ideas. In those days I guess we were never loaded up that much with extra equipment, particularly in my main field of documentary. So the cover usually carried my small slate, a pen & notepad (for sound sheets). It could also carry 2 radio mic receivers, which was max that I used then. Hanging about with my IS Nagra
