  1. Hi folks Just received a contract for a film I'm working on. There has been an agreed amount for daily equipment rental and consumables but there is no mention of this in the actual contract, only basic pay. Should it be in there? Thanks
  2. Hi Larry Haha thanks so much I will keep that in mind for future. I had a couple of online stores looking for 25 euro + cost to ship the two screws. But actually big shout out to Raycom who today just offered to send two completely free of charge, which is very kind. Cheers
  3. Hi Looking for new screws for my SMb clips. Found the thumb screws online which look great but only in the US. I'm in Ireland and trying to find somewhere to get them in Europe. Or even other generic screws that would be suitable. Anyone any ideas? Cheers
  4. Thanks for the info. I'm sticking with 606 anyway
  5. Sorry yes it's true that I asked about bands in Ireland but I've been getting such conflicting reports of which lectro blocks can be used here that I wanted to get some user experiences. Cheers
  6. Hi there Apologies if this has been asked before but I've found it difficult to find out definitively which Lectrosonics Blocks are suitable for Ireland. Anyone using them here? 606 must be ideal but I've also heard possibly 23 up to 26 being available Thanks
  7. Ah thanks both of you for the info. That clears it up. Cheers
  8. Why I can't find this information I have no idea and it's really frustrating me. I have some g3s which are GB band and work fine here in Ireland. I want to pick up another but it's E band and I'm trying to work out for sure if this is a safe band to use. Can anyone advise? Or link to somewhere that does? Am I being blind?! Thanks
  9. Thanks so much everyone for the replies. The collapsed length is certainly an issue I have been thinking about but for my budget I have been trying to stay around the €600 mark which is why I was looking at the Panamic 5811. I had pretty much decided on Panamic anyway and these comments have confirmed that. I'll just have to work out what I can afford to go with. The Mini 5807 certainly does sound like the ideal candidate. Thanks again
  10. Hi folks I'm investing in my first good quality boom pole but have no way to try before I buy unfortunately. I'm trying to limit myself to around €600 and have been looking at the Ambient QSX 5100 and the Panamic Maxi 5811. I'm trying to find sort of an all rounder to do for both drama and docs, although I know there'll have to be some compromise. Does anyone have experience with either of these poles? Do you prefer one brand over the other? I'd love to get some feedback before making a decision. There doesn't seem to be much 'in practice' information about
  11. Ah ok thanks so much for the info. I had been looking at those. Maybe worth a try considering what you say about the SWIT ones you've used and they won't break the bank
  12. Like these guys - https://www.google.ie/shopping/product/14554020303112627120?q=wasabi+battery&client=ms-android-huawei&sa=X&biw=360&bih=631&tbs=vw:l,ss:44&prmd=isvn&prds=num:1,epd:8443819684575379290,paur:ClkAsKraXx1jXldxt-a8iXFPPsroUN4_Ynfrg9LwIO3NhkLjsXez-WVazxT8Qi3vA24zotWdCL-7J1QdA01bIdEc82FNocct9ijs9xPPPCE3XcnPUlnZrUQBgBIZAFPVH716iNToIbbzCHpN3rhkwaUyGxp9lg,prmr:1,cs:1&ved=0ahUKEwjqlbq619HeAhXM-KQKHRBxAEYQgjYI_gE
  13. Hi folks Looking to get some NP-F batteries and charger for a 633. Have been looking at a SWIT 8770 set, the Sound Devices advertised XL-B2 (both similarly priced), or then the ones on Amazon such as - https://www.amazon.co.uk/Pack)Spare-CCD-TR516-CCD-TR555-CCD-TR3000-CCD-TR3300/dp/B014LY3W9G - which are all a lot cheaper. Does anyone have experience using these Amazon batteries with a 633? Any feedback on specific models? Just trying to gauge whether the SWIT/XL batteries are worth the extra expense. Cheers
