  1. So that you don't have to dig under three layers of costume to adjust gain between takes. So it takes a fee seconds instead of a minute. I wish I had this possibility in the last 40 days of shooting I just had ; but not on the wisy I was using.

    Now you got me very interested ! Thanks for the links and pictures.

    Yeah, I should learn how to make my PCB : you can do it with a laser printer and a few chemical stuff easily found in Europe but not where I am now.

    Hi, Here is my DIY BDS. It has 5 switches which are wired like this : 1) Master switch : activate all the other switches + voltage/current display + back usb output (to charge tablet/phone for wingman) 2) one Hirose for recorder 3) two Hirose for wireless mic and IFB 4) One hirose + one DC jack for video monitors and other stuff 5) One USB output (for a small light or a fan : I live in west Africa) It has 2 inputs : -1 hirose -1 dc jack I am mainly using modded Talentcell battery, so I can use and charge the battery at the same time. The voltage is regulated at 12V. Each output is protected by a fuse so as the master. Each USB is capable of delivering 5V/3A. Each switch has a led to see if it’s on or off. The case has been (badly…) 3D printed in PETG. It works very well. A little big but works well ! The power consumption display is really usefulll ! Side notes Power consumption tests of the recorders I have, with all channels activated (mic level for all and one with phantom power) with nothing plugged in : 1) Zoom F4 : 0,25A 2) SD 702T : 0,72A 3) SD Mixer-10T : 0,65A
  5. If you don't need the blimp then don't buy it. I you need it later, then buy it later... The weight of the blimp really matters at the end of a boompole. On a tripod for fx recording, that's not really an issue.
  6. That sounds like a good idea. But it would need a switch with 3 positions, wouldn't it?
  7. Hi, Sorry for the late answer, I missed the notification. Indeed, it is a powered mic capsule ; it is the stock mic I got with the Sony UWP-D11 pack. I don't want to care about another battery to change/charge so I don't want to a battery powered box. A dynamic mic would be a good option, but I like to use what I already have : those several stock UWP mics. So that leaves the capacitor thing ; I just do not know enough about electronics to calculate this. If you know a bit about it, I'm all ears... Thanks.
  8. I just got it so I haven't tested it yet in a shoot situation but I am pretty sure it is not that great for mixing : the faders are very small and the 0 position is like at 1/3 from the top. My next shoot will be more mixing for director and reference sound. The post will be using isos ; so not a big problem for me at the moment. Other than the size of the faders, the others controls are great. It is responsive, stable, plug and play. It's also very light and small.
  9. Hi, The SD MixPre-10t is a great machine, but I missed a mic to talk with the boomop. As the inputs 9-10 can provide pip, I built a small talkback box. I used one of the stock microphone I got with sony uwp d-11 (I am using Sanken cos-11), a switch I got from an old cheap solder iron and a 3d printer. It is pluged on inupt 9. It works well, I haven't tried it in a live situation yet. It is then sent on output 2 with the boom to the boomop. On the downside : - you can't send input 9 or 10 in prefader mode (as there's no fader for it), so I have to route it on the right channel. It means I can't send anything else on the right channel and my mix has to be on the left channel only (booms + lavs ; usually, I send booms on left, and lavs on right). It is not a big issue as post will be done with isos most probably but still, I would love to have the possibility to send inputs 9 and 10 prefade. -there's a "pop" when pressing and releasing the switch. I guess a capacitor could help but my electronic knowledge is not good enough to work on this without the fear to break something in the mixpre. Hoping it could inspire some people...
  10. Hi, What wheels did you use ?
  11. What's your feedback on the 10t ? I'm thinking a lot about getting one ;
  12. The best Leatherman for me : strong, only what I need, and nothing to loose (like those with several screwdriver heads you can add to the body). And yes the pliers function is awesome : https://www.leatherman.com/crunch-1.html
  13. Thanks for the ideas.
  14. Hi Mark, The tension on the antenna when I close the rain protection of the bag is my only concern about this antenna. It doesn't seem to be a huge tension, but still it is there… So I understand the choice of multi strand cable : more flexible. On the other hand, I love the fact that my antenna are straight and always are. When cutting the antennas, my pliers doesn't do a clean cut and the little"imperfection" it leaves is perfect to hold the antenna in the solder "bubble". I thought about using a dremel though. Thanks for the link at B&H. I'll need to find something else though, as I am in west Africa.
