  1. I am starting a production next week for the first time using the Venice. I have no intention of feeding audio to it but I find some of the comments from Robert interesting. This is something we will test for this week during our camera sync sound test. Has anybody tested for this since Roberts original post? Any off speed shots will be done with a third body, the Alexa Mini. We are going to leave a Denecke JB-1 mounted to each of the two Venice cameras. Anything we forgot? Bill 
  2. I wasn't sure if DPA did the serial numbering in sequencial order or not. With yours starting at 226 are you experiencing any cap issues? As mentioned they are covered under warranty.
  3. I have been informed by DPA that they are aware of the problem and have dealt with the production issue. All defective mics will be covered under warranty and replaced with newer ones. Contact your local dealer or DPA dirrectly for warranty details.
  4. Interesting because all mine start with H128. Would that not indicate that mine are from a later batch? So does that mean it is a batch problem?
  5. Well that is good to hear. Yes DPA is aware of the issue and they are replacing the defective ones with newer versions. If you dont mind could you post or PM me with the serial numbers of yours. Thanks Bill
  6. Is anyone finding that the caps on the 6060's come off a little to easily. I don't notice it as much on the beige ones but particularly on the black ones. I'm not sure if it is something to do with the exact tolerances on the cap machining and the thickness of the paint on the black ones or if it is just a batch problem. If it is a batch problem then the serial # would be an easy way of tracking. At these prices maybe an extra set of caps can be sent to the current owners until a recall can be performed. Bo Brink maybe you could way in on this. Bill
  7. I've been coming here since May of 2006 and yes there is a lot of information on the net but JW has to be the "go to" for any information regarding sound. I can not tell you how many times I have recomended this site to fellow sound recordist or any one interested in staring out. Thank you Jeff for making this possible for so many of us and thank you for all you continue to do in your retirement off site for the sound comunity.
  8. Here is a post I made in another thread. Today we have given the CS-M1 a really good run. I did a scene where we swung the on camera with the Sanken and then the off camera with the MKH 50. The CS-M1 has much more gain to it and deffinetly opens up the room more. Not in a bad way but it does have more top end to it than the 50. For sure it has more reach than a 50. In cases where I may have been tempted to reach for the wire to add a little fill on the actor starting deep and coming to camera I can let the Sanken reach for it. A very well respected mixer I know often refers to the fact that "perspective is now almost a thing of the past, well with the CS-M1 I'm now more tempted to play it. We then did the on camera again with the Sanken and the off camera with a CMIT 5U deffinetly a better match. So maybe The Sanken is more like a Schoeps. The biggest down fall is the indoor foam sock that comes with the Sanken. It is useless for any kind of quick swing or even a light swing across a room. You definietly want to beef that up. I'm using it with the Rycote INV-Lite 19. Maybe not the best mount for it but it's all my local dealer had at the time to fit it. It may be contributing to the wind noise due to the two metal rods. I know you can get a rubber dam to slide over the rods but black gaffer tape is a lot cheaper and does the same thing. I was very impressed with it out side as well. I used it in a WS 2 and found it to have a very natural sound. As many people have said before there is no "one" mic for all occasions the new Sanken CS-M1 is a great little mic and just one more tool in the drawer. You have to make the choice as to which mic works best for the scene and that particular actor.
  9. Sorry to hijack the recent conversation but just wanted to let people know. I have been using the CS-M1 with the Zax ZMT 3.5 Phantom 2 and have had digial intermodulation or interference. I'm told you can have cables made to get rid of this but they need to be block specific. I'm not getting it with any of my othr mics (Sennheiser, Schoeps) just the Sanken. Is anybody using the A10's and are you getting the same results? Bill
  10. Could it be? The Dual Tumblweeds? DPA announces their new mic and Lectro announces they join forces with DPA to concour the European RF market. Hmm.
  11. Does anybody know what the current software version is for the GR-2? Thanks
  12. Is this for any new units made by manufactures in the US regardles of domestic or foreign sale? Are you still able to sell 75khz trx's outside of the US? BIll
  13. Sorry to hi-jack this thread. So with all this talk of optical printing, who thinks "MOS" means Missing Optical Stripe and not what we have all come to learn over the years? Bill
  14. That's an awesome idea. I love people who think outside of the box with off the shelf items. Bill
  15. I wonder if the sound team that do these could chime in on what the setup is? I feel like I need to take a trip to London to learn how to do car rigs.
