  1. I have a white one and a black one. They are really slim, maybe like 1mm. Don't know about the portabrace velcro overs, but it might fit - however due tj it being made of silicone it has very strong grip/ causes a lot of friction, so it might be hard to squeeze into another bag if it's tight. Another thing I would like to add is, that the xlr side of the cover is wide, because it's meant for handhelds. That means that water could easily get inside form the top if you use an xlr cable (see picture).
  2. Sadly I'm having the same issue. I say sadly, because other than that the Nano Shield is really amazing but the resonance it creates is crazy and I had my client tell me that "I did cause a lot of handling noises". Now I'm a bit worried of using it again. The last thing I want is to lose a client... Edit: Apparently Rycote fixed/is fixing the problem and Timo will take care of this! Soooo I'll be happy and the clients also
  3. That's strange, I've never had a microdot adapter loosen. Although I've discovered old versions with lemo adapter have an o ring and new ones don't. Maybe it has something to do with this and you have old microdot lemo adapters that are missing the o ring?
  4. Interesting question, you should probably send rycote a message about that and report back
  5. Sorry for off-topic question, but what did happen? All I know is camera operator was killed by Alec Baldwin, sadly. Does it have to do with the strike?
  6. Not the case. I do have transmitters, but I can guarantee that's not the problem, because they weren't in use when I had issues. Didn't even have batteries.
  7. I'll definitely try that, I'm shooting abroad right now with company's equipment, but I'll have to figure out how to separate these things. Or how to monitor the SRc. I'm using a Mixpre 10T II in an Orca Bag, which technically has an rf insulated divider. I'm on Block A1.
  8. I for one have been having lots of troubles with my SRc and SSMs and have no idea why. Store where I bought it helped me troubleshoot, suggested the sna600a, so I got two and it didn't help. Settings are all correct (they checked). Smart tuning doesn't help, sometimes I get disturbances at 3m. Ridiculous. My G4 sadly have almost as much range, but have less disturbances at close range. Not sure I can recommend lectro yet... something seems very wrong with my system, or maybe its the SSM that apparently nobody uses? Any suggestions will be gratefully accepted!
  9. I use the slate mic on my Mixpre 10T II exactly for that.
  10. I couldn't find any either so I recently went with SRc because of the great deal Lectro is offering right now (5o year anniversary).
  11. I'm smaller than most here it seems, but my solution is sorting boxes where I keep everything tidy. Mics are in zip lock bags inside the bag for the transmitters.
  12. I'm interested in your solution. What kind of RF shield cloth did you use, and how?
  13. Recently somebody commented it and it made me think. Since I'm usually the only sound guy on set I never see others boom, except for the few times I had an operator - and those didn't do that. So what I often do is put the boom on my head and hold the rear side with one hand and use my head as a lever, so I have my front hand free. Doesn't cause coises from my clicking elbow or moving my hands, which is nice. So. Am I the only one? Because then it might be something cultural, having grown up in Guatemala where people carry stuff on their head lol
  14. I've had the same issue, but with the PDW xdcam. Not inky that but also I couldn't put my peak levels at above - 10dB on the cam or it would completely distort. Which wouldn't be a problem for me, but I've had complaints that the "audio is too quiet". Any ideas?
