  1. Why not? The hammam where we filmed was fully in action, steam bath, fog, humidity, pools, hot and cold rooms... If they want the steam in the sauna it has to be on... I just would run a test with the lavs before and than decide whats possible...
  2. I made a shot in an hammam this year... No lavs, as the guy was sometimes in the water. I used my 744t and an MS Boom Gefell M310/Neumann KM120. We have been with our camera and soundequipment 2hours before start to give the time for acclimatization. Everything was working without problems. Only downside was the poor sound of the location... I you have the chance make a test with your wireless and you will know if its working...
  3. I realy like the Dpa 4017 (very neutral), Neumann kmr is a bit better then mkh 416 as is the mkh 8060, with the cmit i have mixed experiences ( the one i rented from a friend seemed to be more a nice weather mic), so there is a big choice - just take some mic stands, rent the mics you are interested in and put them close to each other and listen what you likes best...
  4. I use it ( for Headphones and Boxes) and like it, i use it in a semiprofessional small editing room and it works quite well...
  5. I use RRC branded ones, they work since 3years without problems...
  6. if i can get close to the talking head specialy for classic sit down interviews i dont use shotguns anymore, as distance you loose the length of the tube, and the tube of a mkh416 is rather long, a hyper or cardioid gets the membran closer to the soundsource, all shotguns that i tried do strange things to the sound in reflective indoors, its part of their construction... i use often Gefell M310 ( more open sounding) or Sennheiser 8050 (very good directivity, i like the sound less, but nothing that can‘t be fixed by eq)
  7. One more Tentacle Fan here, i like the controll possibilties with the bluetooth app and that you can have a wireless sync workflow, the build in mic is super if you deal with DSLR to have a scratch track, battery life is very good and i never had a problem with jamming, the newer tentacle e has a locker for the cable... only downside for me is that there is no genlock.
  8. Welcome Ira, as someone how from time to time is confronted with making recordings from classical orchestras, choirs or festival music for cinema and tv i think its good to have you here...
  9. mmh, i have experience with their figure 8, its a little bit better then the emesser but not at all comparable with km 120 or schoeps ccm 8, the sound is miles away, the kortwich fig. 8 is made of two back to back electret cardioid elements from the cheaper sennheiser lines. For cardioid / omni or hyper mics i would look at a used neumann km 140 , 130 or 150 or at the microtech gefell m300/m310, better sound for not much more money...
  10. Good choice - very natural and reliable mic, just was shooting with it in a hamam, a very humid and reflectiv space, worked like a charme... bought mine from mes germany two years ago
  11. here in germany its a common standard, from practical side for documentary shots its unbeatable, no mic swapping, gathering ambience and dialog at the same time and the advantage that you have a dedicated mic mid are big pluses. anyway if you want to deliver xy for whatever reason you can matrix while recording in nearly every modern recorder, but then you loose the easy control of the center signal in post.
  12. mine is working fine since years with an neumann cable. you can use any 7pin cable, just solder an 7pin xlr at the mic suspension side. i like the soundstage of this mic alot, in comparison to sennheiser 418, the at bp4027 and sanken css5.
  13. i would try and compare the other options before buying- neumann rsm 191 ca 1500€ used, Audio-technica bp4027 1000€ new, to name some good alternatives...
  14. you may find a used sennheiser mkh 416 for around 400€ - 500€ with a little bit of research, this mic is very reliable. if you want to buy new i would buy a sennheiser 8060, its a more modern design, lighter, shorter and has a better sound of axis and indoors, here in germany its 1000€, i think that is a very reasonable price for a high quality robust and professional tool...
  15. if you like mkh40 you should try a 8040 before you buy, i find the mkh 8040/8050 for dialog/filmmaking more practical behause there are so small
