  1. Looking for a strong A2 who may be relied on to operate a 633, lav, boom for a shoot with football player at the stadium for a cbs gig. Please call me if interested: 541-282-4874
  2. Thank you, Martin! I’m a pretty green solderer, but I have succeeded before, so I might try that. Do you think I need to replace the plug or just the joint- and if the plug, where does one buy it (is it something universal I can find at a radio shack, or might it require a trip to Gotham)? Need to use it tomorrow... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  3. Hello most esteemed colleagues. Been a while; grateful you're all still here! After years of seamless perfomance, my UCR 411A seems to have developed a power input problem. It works fine on 9v batts. It works intermittently (and mostly not at all) on the power input (from my bds), which is powering other UCR 411's fine. Anybody have experience with this issue? I'm wondering if it's typically the kind of fix where I'm better off just buying a new one, or a relatively simple fix. Has anyone found a solution without sending it in to Lectro? Finally, since I still
  4. OK. Been there done that- here’s what I experienced: Great people, friendly customs, not a lot of police presence felt. I had a Carnet, no permits, and was only questioned once on a public beach. Spent most of the week on private property, but 1 day in Dubai, and 1 day in the desert. I was respectful and conservative, but got my shots- scenics in both places; out the car window, on sticks, etc. no problems. Research (google) suggested hiring fixer (2k/day with car PLUS permit fees). Hiring a fixer seemed the safest bet, but it was too spendy for us. If I go back, I’ll fill out the permit
  5. Im also curious if anyone's had trouble with getting wireless mic's into the country...? I'll have a carnet. Thanks.
  6. Hi there, my most esteemed colleagues. It's been a while. Glad (and grateful) to be back. I'm heading to Dubai in two weeks to shoot some scenics - general city shots, then to Al Ayn to shoot desert life, and finally to a private club to shoot golf. Does anyone have experience travelling there? I'm curious about how stringent customs might be (I'lll have 12 cases with a carnet), whether anyone can recommend a good co. to provide shooting permits and transpo/fixer for 2 days of broll shooting, whether a visa is required (i've found "yes' and "no" on the web.). It'll just be me
  7. Any issues with batteries? I'm thinking I'll bring 6 gold mount batts...?
  8. ... thanks Jack! Will do . Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I figured. Thanks again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Thanks Jack. Big help. Did you travel usual ENG multi cases lights and etc? Also, I expect your gear felt like it was fairly safe in general? (I.e. Not like shenanigans at baggage or hotels in some countries where things can go missing)? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Hi. I'm scheduled to travel to Cuba in a few weeks, and I'm wondering if anyone on this fine board has any experience or knowledge about getting into/out of Cuba with a lot of gear. Thank you! John Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  15. Hello Gang. I've got a job in London in a couple weeks (will be shooting for four days). Need to bring lots of gear. People that hired me have not thought about visa requirements. I WILL get a carnet. Anybody know if I'll need a work visa? I'm working on a show for a famous golfer that will eventually air on cbs, but this isn't exactly a cbs gig... Though the final product will be for us tv. Has anyone been to England recently and did you travel with/without a work visa? Thanks!
  16. I started a thread like this on China travel, and got some great help. Thank you! I am also curious about Vietnam. I'm traveling to Vietnam soon with a tourist visa. Does anyone have experience shooting in Vietnam with a tourist visa? We are travelling into DaNang. We will fly either from Shanghai to DaNang, or from HongKong to DaNang. Trying to predict whether a full audio kit will be allowed, or if I'll have to pare way down (I need the full kit for my work in China right before this, but if customs in Vietnam is bad, I'll have to tough it out on smaller, less pro looking gear
  17. That's good news, MGough. Thanks. Do you have an American Passport? The overland route from Hong Kong to Shenzhen wouldn't let me in with my audio gear- spent two days trying. I'm hoping Shanghai will be kinder to me. Do you know any good fixers in Shanghai? John
  18. Woah. 25%. Not sure my client can handle that.... Where did you fly into and out of, Nick? Thanks you two! John
  19. Thanks Jack, Do you have a contact for your fixer? What city did you land in? Was your entry via ground or air? Did you travel into the interior of the country via air? John
  20. Hello esteemed colleagues. Need help with international travel - best routes through China/Viet Nam. My Problem: I have travelled from JFK to Hong Kong, then taken a car across the land border/ground customs to Shenzhen, but I always have trouble at that particular crossing. The last couple years, I've been stuck at customs at Shenzhen for a couple days. Last year, they wouldn't let me bring in any of my sound equipment. They said they were worried that I might be a journalist saying bad things about the govt. I'm not - it's a golf thing.... I had a
  21. I'm in need of a strong A2, for a shoot in the Palo Alto area on Sunday, 1/31. Some familiarity with the Sound Devices 633 would be a bonus. If you are interested, or know someone that you can recommend, please pm or email me - john@johncole.co Thanks!
  22. Hey, There may be an "I" in "interesting munchables", but there is no "I" in Team, which is why I quit asking for money a long time ago- though I will be late, and smell a bit like the floor of last night's bar, and my kids will be joining me. ...but they'll do the cooking! Can we have a ride? with love, and in joyful hope that you pick me, aspiring inert newbie ps - ...where do we get that wine and beer? Might be good to secure that right away....
