  1. I use this exact plano case, its the perfect size...fits in my Orca OR-68 bag for the rest of the lav accessories
  2. Overall, a good article I think. I know it's a bit taboo here to discuss camera peeps doing their own sound, but on some gigs it is simply a budget reality. When my camera friends ask me how to up their sound game when they can't afford me (or when the circumstances dictate), the only thing that comes to mind that you touched upon is the sound recorder vs camera issue: a third option is to purchase an interface to do the heavy-lifting. The SD MixPre-D is a great example of such a device, where you get the granularity of pro audio controls, but not the added step of sync in post. They are great value for the $. For those who believe that helping camera people do their own sound is cutting off our noses to spite our faces, I've found it pays off over time. Those camera people, when successful, will more and more acquire gigs where they now understand their own sound limitation better, and will hire me for those gigs. If they never get better paying gigs in the end, my advice cost me nothing in the end anyways.
  3. I don't use a venue...I'm trying to import scan data from my RF Explorer (windows 10). I'm using Wireless Designer with the latest firmware. I'm sure I'm missing something obvious, but I can't seem to see my imported scan results from RF Explorer. I suspect my export settings aren't correct in RF Explorer (perhaps WD needs a specific csv field separator?). As you can see in the WD screenshot, the start/end frequency is showing as "0". Or is it another setting? Thanks!
  4. Depending on the mixer, the "modified" mzf (newer version that works better with the 8060, as a result of Cinela feedback I think) may have a gentler slope than on your mixer.
  5. Wow Larry thanks so much for the great info
  6. Anyone else use the Remote Audio LifeBox? I have a 20c for my cart (it has a built in charger). Bought during COVID, I haven't put it to set use yet, but during tests I'm getting really wonky results. When not charging, the voltage indicator will visibly reduce every 10 seconds or so, even with no current. I'm assuming I have a lemon battery, but now wish I had bought PSC. Anyone else have issues with the Remote Audio LifeBox batteries?
  7. 8060 is more versatile. But I would buy the 50 first for mostly scripted work... I think you can 'cheat' your shotgun mics a bit more often with a less expensive mic (in a pinch...it's not ideal) but there is no faking your clean indoor dialogue. If i was doing more doc work, I'd buy the 8060 first. But as Karlsson said, going into any job with only 1 mic is a problem (and unprofessional IMHO).
  8. Ya I was thinking along the lines of a smart battery cup with a wire to an adaptor inside the slot
  9. Hello everyone! Has anyone created any kind of adapter for the audioroot/remoteaudio smart battery to be used in the internal NP-1 slot of the SL-6? The guy in the video below MacGyvered a solution (@ 09:36), but I was looking something less invasive (or negating a warranty). Thanks!
  10. Not directly... But it is a noted feature of my day rate. If camera department asks me to carry so much as a sharpie in it though, it all gets billed 😉
  11. Ram ProMaster 1500, low roof. I'm 5'8 (on my tippy toes), so the low roof works as I can stand up straight, which is important as I get older. Any taller, and the low roof model wouldn't work. My 6'4" boom op has to stoop alot, but he's young 😁 Pros: square shaped van, so more square footage than many of the others well thought out wiring, holes, etc for customization by the owner...basically, built to be modified need a divider for security and safety...getting the right divider is picky, and not cheap Cons: Only 2 people in the cab, but you can buy a double seat for the passenger so it could seat three, but you have to pay extra ProMasters are light on extras...no cruise control backup camera is waaaay up...you see wide, but not much detail
  12. Has anyone found a configuration for the COSI that can fit a DPA4017b? I currently have the COSI-XL-8060 (long enough for the 8060 + MZ filter). I'd love to be able to just switch out mic plug holders into the same COSI for the 4017b, but I think the 4017 might be one inch too long to pull it off. Looking for experiences and ideas, because I absolutely love my COSI.
  13. Thanks everyone, problem fixed...on the camera, the inputs for timecode are lemo, and can serve multiple purposes. They have to be designated as timecode, but menu item to do this is not in the timecode menu lol.
