  1. Hopefully together with a culture shift (I might be dreaming!) and Content Aware Fill then we might find more and more multi camera shoots allowing boom back into the frame as they know it will be able to be easily remove in a snap.
  2. Good luck! Bollywood is meant to be the 2nd biggest location in the world for filmmaking :-) Message @soundtrane for advice: https://jwsoundgroup.net/index.php?/profile/145-soundtrane/
  3. Some people might argue if you look at a small enough level all analogue signals are digital as well... 😉
  4. Going to make a wild guess today for when the "Scorpio Micro" will happen, am thinking: late 2020 or earlier it will ship! (fingers crossed) Sound Devices was impressive in pushing out heaps of MixPre recorders quickly. But if we ignore the M variants, as they're just "small" differences, then they had three: 3 / 6 / 10T. The last of them was the MixPre10T, which has a roughly year and half gap between the 10T shipping and when Scorpio will ship. Thus if we figure out a similar product development cycle for the next big release then this will come in late 2020, which is roughly a year and half from now. However hopefully the product development for a "Scorpio Micro" will be faster than making the Scorpio from scratch (which is totally different to the MixPre10T which came just before it!), so maaaaaybe we can see a Scorpio Micro at NAB 2020? 😉
  5. Maybe the Pre Amps are only used in 24 bit mode and not 32 bit mode?
  6. Welcome to the Lion's Den! :-P Ha Anywho.... beyond the resources people already mentioned (like Jay Rose's book), I recommend: https://www.amazon.com/Location-Sound-Bible-Record-Professional/dp/1615931201/ https://www.amazon.com/Sound-Effects-Bible-Create-Hollywood/dp/1932907483/ https://www.amazon.com/Dialogue-Editing-Motion-Pictures-Invisible/dp/0415828171/ https://www.amazon.com/Location-Audio-Simplified-Capturing-Audience-dp-1138129623/dp/1138129623/ Books are cheap and provide an education valued far more than what it cost you! But we're really spoiled in 2019, as we've got heaps which are FREE! Like YouTube, hundreds of hours of education here, a few youtube channels to subscribe to are: https://www.youtube.com/SoundSpeeding (yes... I might be a little biased with this suggestion! ha) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC0vDTntQjs8RD4F6XRlducA https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCiVcZ1ObuU7qh1NWMGFB4HQ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq1FV79pJLa8sxcbZ3tAYrg https://www.youtube.com/user/ThatWasSound https://www.youtube.com/indepthsounddesign https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCqtCwfDs0b8xhEl6WhwhmqA https://www.youtube.com/user/DavidFarmerSound/ https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC4Ia8iUOV9va_AkG-IIOfIg https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq297H7Ca98HlB5mVFHGSsQ https://www.youtube.com/user/audiogeekzine https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCMUHt6JzCMsdtvkaJpU3KXw https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCDBV1_28Q_NKF2SxnLO-3jg That will surely keep you very busy! 😉 Come on back after watching all these if you have any questions.... I may post a lot to this forum, however I still manage to read waaaaay more than I post here! But yet I still post dumb questions now and then.... we all have brain farts now and then, however showing an effort of at least trying counts for something!
  7. If you ever find yourself coming up short, then get yourself a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera! They're cheap as chips, and you'll be able to match it nicely enough with S16 footage. Good luck! You'll need tonnes of it.
  8. Nobody really knows yet, as nobody outside Zoom has got their hands on a demo unit to test. But the pre amps are the same as in the other Zoom F series, or in other words: they've very good. As for file size? 32bits is double the file size of a 16bit file, which is very very tiny. Unlike camera department recording raw, I don't think we've got anything serious to worry about here for data management of 32bit recordings. The biggest worry is post handling it, would never do this without getting the OK from post first as it is very nonstandard.
  9. I'm sure both the People's Republic of China and the Republic of China have opinions on if that is made in "China" or not!
  10. I'm guessing you've also been looking at the one on eBay 😉
  11. Did you make sure you were sending it at mic level and not the default line level from the Tentacle? How does it sound when you play back the Canon video clips? Do you have DaVinci Resolve?
  12. Thanks Klaus, that was really informative.
  13. I was quite impressed by their video advert I saw on Instagram yesterday.
  14. It is just a frequency. Like VHF vs UHF, they have inherent characteristics. But what matters much more is the details of how a particular system is implemented. And this is true worldwide, making it good choice for those who travel a lot as they know it will be legal wherever they end up.
  15. That is a really good and thorough reply Andrew. Got to know all the variables of the test before judging it.
  16. They're microDot connectors, already very commonly used by many in the industry, such as DPA.
  17. I wonder if Sony ever made a recorder with timecode, quite possibly one slipped by us. There is for instance that pro mixer (the Sony DMX-P01) which even has AES, so I bet if Sony had just carried that on into the future a bit longer then I'm sure Sony would have made one with timecode.
  18. Ah, so what is the 100 mode for then? The older 190?!
  19. Am pretty sure you could, but you'd need to set the SM TX to 100 mode compatibility. Not a setup I'd recommend, unless you're in a real pinch! At the very least buy a Lectro 200 series RX (which are dirt cheap on ebay!), so that you get diversity receivers and frequency agility.
  20. What makes four the "magic number"? For many people having one or two full size XLR inputs for a hardwired boom or two is sufficient, and the rest are wireless. Thus to have three is a comfortable number with a bit of an extra buffer spare. (especially if the extra channels still keep limiters as an option with them, rather than being removed for channels 4/5/6 like on the 633) For ambisonics though having 4 is the "magic number", but I'd be fine with having a "633 mk2" as my main machine and pulling out a Zoom F8n on the rare occasion I'm recording ambisonics.

    Which is the perfect example for using Cedar DNS2: live streaming
  22. Well, not just the "vision" of the parent company, but also if the parent company takes a hard line attitude to quality control with an active hands on approach of managing then that can make a massive difference to the end result.
  23. If you're cost conscious, which is likely if you're pairing them with a G3, then a Deity lav or Oscar SoundTech lav makes sense. http://www.oscarsoundtech.com/services.html
