    Timecode in with Arri umc-4 and Red Epic

    Hey Jason, have not figured a solution yet... kindly the camera dept. have allowed me to leave my Ambient nano plugged into the sync port so I am constantly feeding it timecode. The only functionality they loose out on by not using the sync port is for the ability to remote start and stop. Luckily the DP is a friend of mine and a good man so he doesn’t mind doing it. I’ll let you know if we figure it out! cheers.

    Timecode in with Arri umc-4 and Red Epic

    Sorry I was sending this from my phone and it appears to have gone through many times!
  3. Hello guys, i was wondering if anyone has ever worked with this particular set up before. The Arri umc-4 is an external follow focus brain. Unfortunately it uses the sync input (where we normally plug in timecode) of the RED. The umc-4 has a regular timecode input (5 pin lemo), we can get timecode to read on the umc-4 but it doesn’t go through to the RED. Has anyone worked with this particular setup before? Thanks!

    DPA Slim or 4060/61?

    Hey Ryan, its not the 4060 that overloads. I think myself, Nevo and Constantin use Lectro smv and with that transmitter the 4060 is quite hot. With very loud shouting actors it's the transmitter that clips, not the mic, the 4061 being 10db less gives you more headroom to play with. I can't speak for other wireless systems. If you let us know what wireless system you're planning to use them with then we can advise.

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    Thank you. Not quite a tentacle but I guess there's a lot more inside the box. Hope it has some interesting projects coming up!

    DPA Slim or 4060/61?

    I also use smv and I have mainly 4060 but I have started to replace them with 4061 as the 4060 are a bit too hot with very loud actors so I'd recommend the 4061 if you're using Lectro.

    The next question will be how big is your hand! A picture would be very helpful if possible thanks.

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    Nice! Looking forward to getting some. Haven't seen them in the flesh yet so I'm curious to their size, are they bigger or smaller than you thought?

    DPA Slim or 4060/61?

    Yep I'd agree with Constantin, Slim is a useful tool but if I were you I'd start with a 4060/4061.

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    Hey Klaus, Like Edward I'm wondering how the nanos work with the tiny Lockit. Can I have a tiny Lockit attached to my recorder and wirelessly transmit to 2 nanos on 2 cameras. Will they constantly receive updated Timecode from the tiny Lockit? If so, I'm in :-) Thanks.

    Thanks Chris I just saw that. A lot to like about these little machines at the price point I think...

    Can it decode and record M/S stereo? Sorry I don't see it anywhere. Looks like a very handy machine!!

    Hey Whit, thanks for that reply. I've gone ahead and ordered a 688 and an Aliha cl-12, looking forward to not having to patch things around all the time at the back of my cart and not loosing a channel for my comms mic! Also looking forward to trying the Penny and Giles faders Also congrats on your new cart, I use a similar setup to you and your cart is very inspiring!
