  1. Any experiences with Lectrosonics VHF IFB?

    If none of the usual suspects have them to rent or demo you could try reaching out directly to lectrosonics. Your regional sales rep for Lectrosonics should be able to help out.
  2. Sony MDR 7506 coiled cable

    I wonder how well it works in reverse?
  3. Lavalier outer jacket repair

    You can also find 3:1 or 4:1 heatshrink to get it over the connector or mic end and then shrink it down. Try heatshrink.com
  4. Ursa Strap

    Thanks Glen. That’s great to know. It is certainly easier to buy locally.
  5. SD688/CL12 Maximum Allowed Power Consumption Warning!

    My understanding is that the headphone ports on the cl-12 are completely separate from any of the electronics and are just pass throughs back to front. They shouldn't affect any power consumption on the cl-12.
  6. SD688/CL12 Maximum Allowed Power Consumption Warning!

    I used the 688/CL-12 recently on a series and never used the additional USB power. The only thing I noticed is the LED lights don't get as bright as I would like mostly when outside and I believe they get brighter when plugged in to USB power. I never had any problems during the run with it. I've thought about using the USB power though for the brighter LEDs.
  7. Folding Bag Cart v1.0

    It's probably a part from backstage. I'll see if I can find it in their catalog
  8. I did the same as Jon. Sold it as soon as I heard it was probably going away. There is a lot of 600mhz gear for sale now and it all sells for less than something similar in a lower block. Start selling now and if you buy used gear it helps offset some of the pain.
  9. Which Schoeps mics for documentaries?

    Cinela mounts and wind protection are extremely light. The Rycote WS4 windjammer weighs about twice that. For your mk4/41 you could look at using Rycotes newer baseball windscreen and get the fur for it. It has worked well for me and you can take it outside in light wind. Don't bother with the W5D. You won't be able to use that even in light wind.
  10. Boom op-less

    Never take less for yourself and your gear in order to get a boom op. It devalues what we do as mixers and makes it hard to make a living. Productions should be educated on what it takes to capture good production sound and that includes decent rates for mixers, boom operators and our gear. It's hard enough working without a utility on a lot of shows.
  11. 664 panic

    You can always tell the clients that they can just purchase your card if they don't want to transfer on location or get it back to you reasonably soon.
  12. Which Schoeps mics for documentaries?

    If you're having trouble booming the subject during a steadicam shot, you should work on your booming technique. Changing your microphone won't help if your mic placement is off. Boom operators used the 416 for years and even today on all types of moving shots. An Omni mic isn't going to help all that much since you will be picking up a lot more background noise.
  13. Transport options for SRc & transmitters

    I leave my receivers in the bag and carry the bag on. I have transported it in a pelican as well with receivers left in place in the bag. Lectro transmitters are pretty much indestructible but I won't leave them just laying in a pelican. I keep everything stored in zippered pouches for ease of use and organization. One note on the receiversis I either fold down the antennas or take them off during transport.
  14. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    Yes remove the resistor and wire the white wire to pin 5 for servo bias wiring. Shouldn't assume, early on I had issues getting lavs through b&h
  15. COS-11D SMQV transmitters gain issues

    And that's why I normally don't buy through B&H
