  1. nice stuff. i'm also interested knowing your technique on how you installed these clamps without drilling an hole in the pelicase. thanks for sharing
  2. I like them very much. quarter turn is great. send me a message if you wanna try mine (internally cabled tho)
  3. So it finally came. 1st impressions, it feels nice , not that big as some people said it would be. a bit heavy but the kind of heavy that makes you, as the owner, secure. it's not a big deal for the talent, I hope I wont get into divas, but im mostly on doc gigs.. it's well built with rounded corners it will make concealing a bit more easy I presume.... It is supplied with 4 antennas (lemo 1 pin) at different frequencies. the menuing is clear, the OLED screen is comfortable, much more visible and readable than the old MTP40, the navigation is pleasant and well done. I haven't had a chance to test it in the field yet but I will make further observations once my next corporate shoot is over (will have my trusty lectros around just to be sure because new stuff is always scary but i feel confident) I am right now testing the battery life with nimh IKEA LADDA rechargeable batteries. You can swap the battery time display between percentage or time remaining, for now I have tested with time remaining and am monitoring to see how accurate it is. I had a bit of trouble opening the battery compartment, but once you get the hang of it it's ok. definitely need to brief your boom op or asisstant before shooting so they can practice on it because you can loose a fair amount of time sorting this out the 1st time. wich is a good thing on the other side, talents will not be able to mess with it easily. once the battery door unlocked you can see a usb c port, and a mini sd card port. my next test will be to do a continuous recording with TC and the RF power at 100 mW to see how long it takes the nimh battery to drain, and if the audio file is safe when it shuts down du to loss of power. if you have any questions i will try to reply to them.
  4. I have a cinela Pianissimo with a mkh8060 and a schoeps figure 8 side mic. it is working great the thing to consider is the cable with 5pin out already, as this is not interchangeable easily I would try send a mail to cinela directly
  5. AEITECH is the official reseller for France, I think also DCA audiovisuel could help you out, They are nice people, you surely know them already. In switzerland, SLG broadcast is the reseller but I doubt that it helps you out given the fact that switzerland is not in EU... (I got my MCR 54 from them and waiting some MTP60, nice company) Bonne chance
  6. +1 for the sugru. It has lots of nice uses and tired cable reinforcements are one of those. it might be a bit thick, but I dont see how to avoid thick results for your problem. It's always useful anyways to have some for your everyday needs. highly recommended.
  7. Some units are now in the hands of colleagues. Anyone here got lucky and can share 1st impressions ? also I saw a picture of this PHA 60 :
  8. yes saw that as well, it looks promising, especially as a plant mic. Should be available in spring 2022 But like you said it's 100% aimed at the music / live scene... Curious to hear and see how it goes for us on set. as soon as the rental companies near me got some, i'll definitely try them to see how it performs
  9. anyone got their hands on these ? If so, Please share your first impressions !
  10. me too, tentacle units has proven their reliability countless times.
  11. thanks. but that's not what I asked. What I asked is if there is any plans in the future to use the remote features without a duo RX.
  12. Thanks a lot for your answer. It looks very promising indeed. I'm almost sold to the idea. Almost. I can see those units replacing my good ol' trusty sennheiser g3's as camera hops and thus free some frequencies in the 500 mhz spectrum, . (and move on to a very crowded 2.4 ghz spectrum... But the "auto switch" channel feature looks nice, must see on real work conditions with teradeks and other devices spraying RF on this particular spectrum) Another question is about the control of those devices wirelessly : If I understood correctly, you can only trigger "rec" button wirelessly (what about power management , put to sleep, boot on ?) via the connect duo RX... Any hints about a future app or remote feature that would not need a duo RX ? I have to say that I respect the innovation and affordability of your products. Really cool for those who are starting out and want to build a kit.
  13. Promising... very cool features for sure. would be cool paired with my sonosax M2D2 mic preamp for instance. I'm almost about to pull the trigger on a timecode kit set... ...I just want some "honest reviews" before going with it. Some people talked about The Signal / Noise ratio on the older connect system... (wich has been fixed with a FW update IIRC) The other concern is about the latency. I wanna be sure it's a consistent 19 ms , but I had some chat with another PSM who told me that it was not consistent, making the use as a camera hop a bit complicated. something with the digital transmission protocol used. Would love to know more about that issue before buying. Those are concerns That I only heard, so be cautious with these rumors and do not take it as a fact.
