  1. There are lots of good bag options out there. I really like this one. Plano Website "Weekend Series" 3500 Put a PortaBrace sticker over the Plano and your good to go!
  2. Just a quick search, trying to help. Something kinda like this? check out this search of smallrig : plate & baseplate I have something like this setup for my 2 channel snake/camhop quick disconnect.
  3. Best stuff I found for removing old gaff tape residue is WD-40. I went through all the usual suspects and an experienced set dresser suggested WD-40. My only worry is that it might discolor or dissolve the actual slate acrylic. Please test accordingly. Good luck!
  4. I advocate for better working conditions, I know we are on the same team.
  5. I used to love Subway. First the sneaker rubber in the bread. Then came the no tuna in the tuna. Lest we forget Jared... Subway can't catch a break, lol.
  6. Hey Andrew, Any chance at getting a new thread started? This item has been announced, released, delayed and released again. All in one thread. 4 topics in one! Or we could all just keep posting off topic questions and see how far it goes?
  7. Yo, you gotta take off the sticker. There is one more screw underneath the sticker.
  8. I run the Nano Lockit with the ACN turned off. With ACN turned on and actively jamming the battery life is significantly compromised (10hrs). I got mine when they came out and I might be looking at sending them back for new batteries sooner than later.
  9. Bouke on the code, Neil on the design/concept, Allen on the case/chassis, I’m on the cables. Display does the beta test. Anyone else wanna make a prototype? I suggest adding in a way to check frames and sync.
  10. I was just making a trrs cable, it needs to be padded down to mic level
  11. The time has come. For a new thread about anything to do with this particular item.
  12. I am just glad I am not the only one who doesn't fully comprehend this issue or have an easily comprehensible explanation. This is however, an intriguing discussion.
  13. Ah yes, I saw 23.976 and 29.97 and went from there. Off-speed has always been out of sync and MOS for me. I learned something.
  14. Anybody know someone who can handle a short low budget fri, sat, sun. Rates $600 inc gear. Indie. Mixer cancelled, shooting tomorrow. I told her probably not. Just want to ask as a courtesy. Thanks, D
  15. Needs to be left on the camera all day. Continuously jamming camera. Think of it this way, three cars driving down the road or 1 car towing 2 cars. Older ambient stuff is capable of cross-jam, newer units are not. What they are doing is exactly why you are having your problem.
  16. Rewire it. Look for a hair wire. Clean the capsule. Lastly. Just don’t touch it. Lol.
  17. Cross jam. Yes. Some T/C boxes won’t do it. Check with manufacturer.
  18. Check your TC devices, do you have a way to check sync? Can you plug your TC devices into another device and check sync? 6 frames sounds like faulty gear but not sure. I use an old Ambient slate and it works great. 2.2.3 External TC framerate identification Press BLUE button to display the Generator framerate and next to it the external TC framerate. A single bar to left of the framerate indicates the eventual error in the following ways: 0 1/4 1/2 1 1-1/4 1-1/2 1-3/4 2> if external TC frames error ext fps slate fps 2.2.4 EXT TC error check Bar full left indicates an error of 0 frames or less the 1⁄4 frames . 4 bars from left 1 fps error. Full right indicates 2 or more frames error. 2.2.5 Framerate identification The ACD slate display shows the various framerates in the following way: Display 24 25 23 29 2d 30 3d Framerate 24 25 23.98 29.97 29.97 Drop Frame 30 30 Drop Frame
  19. U need to turn off your caps lock.
  20. Henri and Philip have mic dropped this thread. B6>Cos-11and Wired>Wireless IMHO. It all works and only we can tell the difference blindfolded. Piano's have tons of harmonics, throw allot of mic's at it. ORTF on a moveable Cstand or mic stand is awesome. Try to get in there for rehearsal and experiment with distances from the piano, you will notice big differences. Bring a tape measure and document distances from source. I can't recall the exact distances from memory but they are there, its calculus.
  21. Throw two DPA 4061’s hardwired in there somewhere and your covered.
  22. The more money you spend the better it will sound. Figure out how good you need it to sound and spend that much money.
  23. I say pay a couple more bucks for more reliability from the RFExplorer. Buy both and return one to Amazon. It took me a minute to get down the setting to what I like and can use easily.
