  1. Hot and Humid - loose, wicking T shirt (Patagonia Capilene is my jam), loose pants if it’s buggy, swampy, high grass. I only use bug spray when absolutely necessary. Comfortable shoes (you know your feet ) and extra change of socks helps for super swamp days. And always, always look for shade and stay there if possible. Favorite hat if you can’t be in the shade.
  2. Thanks Dave! It never occurred to me to see if they can make custom length. Going to reach out.
  3. Any suggestions on a case to hold a 63” Ambient carbon boom pole (collapsed length)? Not into the PVC DIY thing, and the Usual Suspects dont seem to have anything to hold a pole that size. It doesn't have to be a hard case for air travel. This is close...and a top contender. https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00D2WIJVA/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_DOuUBb3T5W8M0 I’ve used a smaller version of this one for years and it’s great...but not sure i want the unnecessary extra length. Right now it’s lives in a DIY cardboard tube (Painted black and a little Gaff for strength ), clearly disrespectful for a pole of its stature. Just curious what anyone else is doing?
  4. This. I always try and get away from the wireless scratch track on the camera and instead push a MKH60 or 416 on camera for a scratch and I always have a TC lock it as well. Cam Op’s Always seem to like the Comtek feed (from belt pack ) over having headphones attached to camera and monitoring. But...it does seem like DP wants into your sandbox too...not cool.
  5. Yeah, totally agree...we all have our own style. It’s just I could spend all day fighting the DPA or just grab a different mic and be done. (That sound though!! So awesome! ) Seriously I was so excited to get the DPA’s, I picked up 2 (Slim & 4060) as a test to see if I wanted 8-10 to be in full time rotation. Nope. I’ve bought many many lav’s over the years and I can’t remember any cable changes in my Sanken or Countryman. Seems like if DPA changed the cables they would use it in their marketing..”hey guys remember those hard/ stiff cables we had for years...well we finally have an awesome cable now!” Appreciate your $$ But hey, live and learn. Never stop learning. “Older DPA's has that stiff cable; new ones are very soft and not so much glossy feeling as the older ones.” Excately....mine are BOTH glossy...
  6. Well....I recently picked up two of my first DPA lavs to add to my collection, a 4061 Slim and 4060. I was literally blown away at the sound they reproduce. Just wow. I use them mainly in the “concealers,” and I have yet to deploy the button mount on the slim. I use Sanken Cos-11d’s, and Countryman B3’/ B6’ lavalieres extensively and have been happy, but that DPA sound. Wow. However...the cable material on the DPA is terrible in my opinion. It’s a very STIFF cable, not like the softer/ supple material used in the Sanken or the Countryman. What I’ve noticed is -at least in my eyes, NOT ears is that I can see the cable whenever it’s hidden. It’s like it just doesn’t Flex right, so any movement and I’ll see a little “cable bump” come and go... It’s like I always want to use my DPA’s but every time I put it on...it comes off in 5 min because I just can’t stand to see the cable. Wardrobe is a slim T Shirt, forget the DPA, button down...we’ll see. Polo shirt...maybe. Does the cable “soften” up over time? No idea. Whenever It works, DAYUM that sound is AMAZING and I love it. Just my opinion...
  7. Really...these guys are the ones asking for these low ball rates? I used to love watching their snowboarding vids..great stuff. But those rates are shit. Walk away is all you can do.
  8. Mine came with the Sony convert adapter...1/8”-1/4”.
  9. Seriously...the sound is so clean, deep bass, crisp highs. I can’t believe I never heard of them before seeing this thread. Also there’s something so familiar and comforting about it being made out of a Pelican. Maybe it’s that we use them day in and out....I do have to add that one of the most underrated features is no ANNOYING start up / pairing tone or music. It’s just on or off. Like it should be. Definitely a great addition to my kit!
  10. Don’t forget the “Softies” for the HN-7506’s!...my headphones of choice for most of my shoots - construction/build/renovation world.
  11. Appreciate the clear Nail Polish tip. Going to give it try on m B3’s & B6’s...
  12. Just picked up a DemerBox! They have some deals on “scratch and dent” models...I mean it’s a Pelican...how “scratch and dent” could it be...hit them up!
  13. Whoa, Love this DemerBox! Got to get one. Thanks for putting it on my radar. Music is life when I’m on the road!
  14. I 2nd TOPSTICK, easy to cut -or even rip. And very affordable. I like the Rycote stickies, but only whenever I use the Rycote OverCovers. Ialways have a few Concealers pre “sticky” then just peel the back off and go. And you can even re- stick more Topstick on top of itself in a pinch and its ready to go.
  15. Just a quick chime about the Qbit XL. Been using them for a few weeks, zero problems on F55, C300 and Fs7 Cameras. From freezing temps in the Pocono Mountains, to high humidity of indoor water parks the XL played nice. Also used the Denecke TS-C slate as well and all was rock solid. Battery life was pretty much 30hr, I could have used the Hirose to D tap to power, but battery life did not disappoint. 1/4-20 mounting hole is a nice touch. Purchased two to replace, my three Denecke SB3’s, will probably keep one SB3 just in case. I really like the way it jams In/ Out on a single BNC connection. The LED’s are super bright and would be nice to have a lower light setting, but I just mount it with LED’s facing camera body and can fully “see” what it’s doing w ambient light reflecting.
