    Put me in there too. Would like a picture too. You'd say it perform better than the regular softie?

    Hi Jez, You are right, Nanning isn't in Yunnan but in Guangxi! For the info, I posted a link a couple of replies before yours. Going there tomorrow, I'm thrilled. Marc

    Gear rental China

    Hi Allen, everyone, The local fixer the production hired found a camera rental company that own and rent a 633, boom and wirelesses (brand not specified). I think it's around Guangzhou. I can ask for details if anyone is interested. Thanks you all for your inputs, much appreciated.

    Gear rental China

    Thanks for the links New Mexico, I am aware of the great power of Google, but I was hoping with my post to find something closer to Nanning. If you look at the map, it is quite a ride to rent gear from Beijing. I will check with the BJ rental place, but I find it very strange that there would be no gear available to rent in the region, and even more in Hong Kong.

    Gear rental China

    Hello everyone, I am looking for gear rental in China, some kind of back up in case mine does not make the trip or anything. Production asked for a plan B. I will be shooting in the region of Nanning, Yunnan, but can make a pick up in Guangzhou if needed. I would need a ENG bag with a recorder. I roll with the nomad and lectrosonics wireless, any gear close to this quality will do. Thanks for the tips.

    Merci Dominique, Thanks Jack, I already own SMQV but, being a Nomad owner, I want to make the switch to Zax wireless this summer for reasons you both must know. I also prefer life battery over seize. On Zaxcom's website, the LT is claimed to give up to 5 hours of running time, wich I found quite reasonable, being the fact that I get about 6-7 hours with my SMQV in real world situation (running most of the time at 100mW). Now things I must find out is: is the 5 hours run time of the LT is real and what range I can expect to get on 50mW with the QRX200 and LT2. I guess I will find out when I'll rent the things for a week or so when I'll get back to Montreal. By the way, Kelsey's clips looks great, I'll make sure to order a few in a couple of months!

    Hi everyone, A while ago I saw a couple of pictures of mixers/recorders all together for seize comparaison. I tought it was a nice thing to see and I would like to see the same for different types of TXs. I would especially like to see a picture of an SMQV and a TRXLA2 side by side, but for everyone's sake it would be nice to see other models ( Wisicom, Audio LTD, Sennheiser, Lectro new series... ) Any of you gentlemen is able to do that? Thanks, Marc

    My new bag....

    This is Amazing work Pascal, I am speechless. Congrats. On the business side of things, have you tried to mold your aluminum frame in order to make plastic casting? Could be a much cheaper and faster way to reproduce the thing and a plastic frame would be also lighter... Take it or leave it, it's just an idea BTW, what kind of power distro is connected under the battery shoe? Cheers!
