    664 timecode question

    Yes. Sample/Timecode Accuracy ± 0.2 ppm (0.5 frames per 24 hours) Timecode and Sync Modes Supported: off, Rec Run, Free Run, 24h Run, External Frame Rates: 23.976, 24, 25, 29.97DF, 29.97ND, 30DF, 30ND Accuracy: Ambient generator, 0.5 frame in 24 hr Yes, we can jam to the internal clock. This mode is called 24Hr Run. You can either leave the 664 in 24Hr Run or change the TC mode back to Free Run. The generator will hold good code for 2 hours. After that it will shut down and you will get all 00s on power up if you are in Free Run.

    Sound tech falls on Tom Hanks "Mister Rodgers movie

    Correct, from what I read it was unpreventable/unpredictable. Article says he went out on balcony for a smoke and suffered heart attack that caused fall. I wish production will dedicate the film to him if they decide to proceed with filming.

    Boom Pole Quick Connect

    “Used” is what I took from this. Needs to be replaced/maintenanced if not functioning properly. I take issue with poorly cared for equipment. I cannot speak to ambient not sharing sharing their intellectual property. I don’t tend to share mine either.

    Boom Pole Quick Connect

    From what I see in the video, that mechanism could be opened by accident. Simply pushing it against an obstacle would release the slide. It seems to be similar to the Ambient QRT but without twist locking and being powder coated purple. One could machine the ambient QRT down further and make it a few ounces lighter.

    waterproofing and mounting a lectro bodypack?

    I fabricated the mic cage for this movie. Check out some clear wetsuit cement for an adhesive. Just test the waterproof bag. They are not equal. You could probably get away with just two freezer zipper bags, white cloth gaff and seal cement. Maybe duct tape instead of white gaff.

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    Thank you very much for chiming in here. I have been advocating for no display. I feel there are enough blinking or flashing LED lights on a camera already. Having display on an IOS APP would be OK for me. I guess there are still manual window hand cranks in cars just in case you drive off a dock like in the movies and have to roll your window down manually and swim out! Full disclosure; my Tacoma has hand crank windows.

    Camera Hops

    I think that will be OK. I will test and listen to one first. I will look into the AGC issue. Thanks for the input @James Bull!!!!
