  1. Sorry, but what is S&Q.

    Not being a camera savvy person, I am not familiar with this term.

    Have worked with Sony Venice no issues regarding TC, but working soon with a FX9.

    My instincts would be to look for External Tc in, and Regen and connect a JB-1 or Tentacle Sync E to the TC in BNC.

    Of course with matching frame rate settings.

    My impression (based on booming for other mixers with their mics, so it's not as comprehensive as it would be if I owned them myself) is that the MiniCMIT can sometimes make actors sound congested, particularly female voices.  I've never had this happen with the CMIT5.

    I would love to hear if other people have noticed anything similar.

    We have been using both the CMIT and CMIT mini for several years and have never noticed that. In fact, no noticeable difference at all.

  3. I have had this happen as well. Only once in a 90 day season. 
    It was at the end of day, and removing and re inserting the battery

    worked, and I got to see what to do when it’s battery replacement time.

  4. I like the CUT 60 on MK141. matches closer to the CMIT with its permanent 70 Hz cut off.

    I was always noticing  more rumble when we switched to the 141. much closer in tone now.

    That's my 2 cents.

    We had couple of CUT 1s many years ago. Just weren't using them, so they were sold.

    Yes, portable recorders made a huge difference.  I think the device that made even more of a twist in the recording of dialog for motion pictures was the wireless mic pack.  I lived through that change, and don't ask me how I feel about Vegas and early Audio Ltd RF rigs if I have been drinking.  The introduction of these game changers was unique to the whole presentation of cinema dialog.  Don't ask me for better or worse.  You might not like my answer.  :)



    The last sentence. Oh yes…

  6. You could try using a 3/8 thread female to Panamic quick release adapter (picture attached), then the Panamic quick release stud.

    Audio Services in  Toronto would have the adapter, or maybe another of the usual suspects will have one ...

    This of course is not needed if you have a Panamic boom with its  stud attachment. no wiggle.

    The 8050 is thinner than the Schoeps (but indeed not the 50).


    With a ring of tape around the mike, the BD5 will fit perfectly.


    I did it several times in the past,

    Thanks, Henri. I was of course thinking of the 50. But your idea of the tape to match diameter is a good one. The B5D with its air space is really very good with the Schoeps mics for interior booming - really transparent, but the issues Daniel mentions would lead me towards a Cosi or Nano shield.

  8. Jeremy's suggestion is good. I have a CMS9 Sanken now discontinued but very similar to the CMS7 but with fixed XY matrix built in. It sounds very good and is extremely quiet. Heavy at the front end but on a stand with shock mount is fine. Excellent for loud or quiet ambiences.  Not great for booming, but who uses a stereo mic to follow dialogue. (A whole new can of worms there)
