  1. Hey Arcminute, thanks for the reply. The battery solutions for the MP6 are actually my biggest hesitation. It seems that the Zoom F6 isn't as much of a battery hog and the L series battery sled is built in. From what I gather, the battery sled accessory for the MP6 is pretty fragile.
  2. Hey guys, I'm in video production and most of my work is solo. Lately I've been doing a lot of interviews featuring two people at once that require me to run two boom mics, one over each subject. The mics I'm using are a matched set of Sennheiser MKH 8040s. The issue I run into is that I'm spending countless hours in post lowering the decibels of the person who's not speaking and then raising them up when they speak, lowering the first person's decibels back down, and so on and so forth in order to eliminate the echo I'm getting from the person's mic who's not speaking. I know that
  3. All of my wireless kits are Sony branded and each unit covers channels 30-36 & 38-41 (566 to 608 & 614 to 638 MHz). Unlike other brands, Sony did not (at least to my knowledge) offer any kind of trade in program for TXs or RXs that were in the range that are no longer legal as of last year. Because of this, I'm currently stuck with three sets of UWP-D11 transmitters and receivers as well as one URX-P03D two cannel receiver and one UTX-P03 plug-on transmitter. That's $2,830 worth of useless wireless systems sitting in my office that have essentially no future. I'
  4. I wish another company would make wireless mics that can interact with Sony's electronic hot shoe mounts on their cameras the way the UWP-D11 systems do. If a company like Deity could pull that off, it would be extremely intriguing.
  5. I'm sticking with the 8050/8040 mics because I am already set up with two 8060s and want to use the same mounts, capsules, accessories, etc.
  6. Hey guys (and gals). I work solo for 90% of my work and have been shooting a lot of interviews (exteriors) with Sennheiser MKH 8060s mounted to boom poles which are sitting on stands. Both of my 8060s are equipped with MZF 8000 modules. I also use Sanken COS-11D lavs as backups sent wirelessly to my Sony UWP-D11 wireless kits. A lot of my interviews are two person interviews, so I've been using two booms and two lavs like this, one set for each person, and it's worked great. Lately I've been having to shoot a lot of my work indoors, so obviously I need to move away from the gun mic
