I know dpa qualifies the 4098  as film mic and sells it to us but I really like the 4080 for all the reason mentioned above.

And if a  lot of us can not live with the low cut I am sure if DPA makes a flat 4080 it would be a very popular mic...

Rado and I are together on this. The 4098 was not billed as a film production mic until people in the field saw it's usefulness for plant mics, particularly in cars. It was originally billed as a lectern microphone that would also be feeding loudspeakers. They are certainly a useful tool to have on the set, and I have used them successfully as car plants, but I much prefer the sound quality characteristics of the shorter, more open, 4080 for this use.

Been talking to dpa about the 4080...

Vincent Antonini said "stay tuned" today...

 

 

Rado,

 While you have the attention of DPA how about getting them to make some "clear" button hole tubes for the 4060 slim and also a vampire clip for it. Not just the concealer but a vampire type clip like the one for the regular 4060.

I can not ask anybody to make a vampire clip. I don't use them and am against people using them. 

I am sorry. Vampire clips in my humble opinion should never be used on a human being...

+1 Don't use them on people either but they can be handy for some car interiors and other soft furnishings.

Oh... er... ah... you stick them in the clothes, not the person.

 

That tends to make a difference in the level of acceptance.

Unless the person tries to de-lav her/himself and gets injured...

It is a personal choice of mine and a lot of the talent I worked with.

I will probably get murdered if I put one on a car interior!!!

Some headliners can take it, some can't. I guess those in Vegas less so. Still, a quick and inconspicuous way of mounting when you can, especially on materials that don't work well with tape.

I use clips most of the time. Tape is unexeptable  in a car.

But we are drafting away from the subject...
