  1. Maybe the power bar and the orange cord, and of course the rugged switch box was code in it's day...
  2. The tip should be sort of a flat concave shape, maybe it's just the angle of the photo.
  3. Hello "Dognut44" You will be happy with the performance of UH400/411A combo. Just don't let the Lectro limiters go too deep, if you know what I mean. Your recorder, or mixer may have more sophisticated limiters. Companding artifacts are not really evident with the Lectro Digital Hybrid scheme. The way movies are made now, wireless boom is almost always a necessity, so a good, dependable wireless link in both audio and RF terms will help you. If there are 2 cameras, the sound dept should have 3 people - how big is the Camera Dept? All the best, Jim Rillie
  4. Hi Joppe, I will be interested in an 8 bay version of the new design. Very nice looking.
  5. Sounds like it is n Record Run, to me, and of course, as Johnny says TC in and Jam.
  6. Thanks for keeping us up on this, Brian. Following...
  7. I feel your pain, Johnny, But that,s the way it is.Flatheads have been on my shitlist forever, but they work with effort. I will live with it, works for me. Phillips head just as much grief. Hex or Robertson are my favs. Canuck here.
  8. Hearing the mix for a boom op is not unusual. The boom op can hear how their mic (the boom mic) fits in the dailies. Ideally, both options should be available to the sound crew, whatever they would rather listen to.
  9. Looks in principle like the RF Venue Diversity Fin, at maybe a bit cheaper. I have found my Lectro passive fins outperform the Diversity Fin range-wise by a bit in the same situation. Not a scientific test or provable, just a feeling.
  10. Not my experience. Eneloop Pro and Ladda compare very favourably, and the Ladda covering doesn't seem to crack as much at the edges as the Eneloop Pro. I also always use slow charge on all rechargeables.
  11. I am using an Option 7 Comtek PR 216. When properly placed on the VA cart, works fine. Same feed Mono mix as the Bourgeosie get. Playback OK for the users.
  12. I have an 8 bay Joppe made (I believe v. 2). Same as the left one in the picture above, except 8 bay version. Suits my needs very well and portability is definitely very good. I am only in the first few weeks of use, but I find it perfect for my needs, and at a reasonable price. Certainly 8 of the standard 1 bay Lectro-provided chargers have at least as big a foot print, more you include the awkward powering options for several at once. My vote is the 8 bay, minimal size larger than a six-bay version. Charging NP 50s in the charger is always much less time than it takes to discharge the in-use battery, at least in SSMs, so charge current as it is now is good, and I am always wary of shortening the eventual life of a rechargeable battery by pushing the limits to get a fast charge. 'Nuff said.
  13. My 8 slot version is working very well. Excellent design and manufacture. Thanks , Joppe
  14. Cinela Osix 2 for us. Never going back.
