  1. If he wants a backup, I have a Deva 4 for sale. And the FireWire port works great! I'll even include a CF reader/writer.
  2. I have a Zaxcom Cameo mixer I'll make you a deal on. Outstanding routing options.
  3. Don't overthink it. Take Phil's advice and boom it. Determine upfront which will be the main camera, and the one that you follow, including his frame line. Just make sure you hear the person(s) the main camera is pointing at. Stick your microphone over that. Let the second camera, and production, know that since you can't wire people, wide and tight won't work. You will mandate the frame line of the second camera. Also let them know that the second camera can't go to the other end of the table and point at another conversation without another sound guy. Two cameras, 2 sound guys.
  4. Someone out there using a SD 688 with a loaded Lectrosonics Venue. Mulling over how best to wire the two together. I hate to use the six full-size XLR's in the event I need to plug a mic cable in or something that needs phantom power. Do you use the six TA3 inputs? This would put my 6 wireless tracks on tracks 11-16. Any post problem with this? Wish SD had routing options with these recorders…
  5. Thanks Ryan.
  6. Curious at what the new iPower 700’s run time is in a Lectro IFB. I have the 520s, and they're older. They are good for about 8 hrs. Will the new ones make it through a 12 hour day?
  7. Nothing like a good RF discussion to get Larry to dust off the keyboard. Thank you kind sir for your expertise and knowledge.
  8. Hey Cleve. Since you know this gentleman, request a version that has the connectors at the large end. That's how all of us use it. Just a thought. Please and thank you
  9. Question for those that know more about this than I do - Could you put a connector at the larger end of the Antenna? Looks like the trace runs from one end to the other. Scrape away the Epoxy (or whatever it is) and solder to the other end?
  10. Sorry Mike, after I read my post I should've been more descriptive. If you are shipping a pelican case full of lithium camera batteries, FedEx and UPS want you to do it via ground. Discussion about this at Super Bowl amongst the equipment guys at NFL, VER, etc. It may not have been implemented yet.
  11. FedEx and UPS are not allowing shipping of lithium batteries overnight. i.e. in an airplane. You have to ground ship them. Pretty soon we will all be going back to nickel metal hydride batteries
  12. I am old school and not a fan of wireless anything unless I have to. I use the Denecke time code boxes. A SB4 is on my list and it will soon replace my older Denecke boxes.
  13. A reboot of the separate mixer, recorder. I.e. a new cameo mixer, and deva update or nomad recorder. I'm not a fan of the control surface. Used to be... I would have the deva on the cart, and if I had to do a bag shot, I would unplug the deva from the cameo, and Away I go. The deva 24 looks massive and too "computery" for me. My 2 cents.
  14. Will the Betso's cross jam?
  15. I use a plate I got from the camera brothers. I think it's called a "Preston Plate". The side plate that mounts over the XLR is much nicer IMO. Picture below.
