  1. Even though I never got to meet Eric face to face I considered him not only a incredible wealth of knowledge for all things sound but a friend. I was lucky enough to have been able to chat with Eric every weekend for the last several years. I would recomend people watch the podcast posted here from Joseph Boyle and inspired by Rachel Cameron about Eric. He will be missed. "And you do What"?
  2. Here is what Fremantle is planning in Australia to come out of the covid pandemic. I was on a Fremantle show when we were ordered to shut down. I'm not sure what they mean by dividing the studio space into quadrants. Does that mean different stages? No way you can shoot with three crews on one stage and get it locked up. We used 4 large stages on our show. So does that mean one crew per stage? I don't think many shows could triple the crew size. Also no mention of how to handle the use of puting wires on actors. https://deadline.com/2020/04/neighbours-resumes-production-australia-c
  3. I would love to have a mid week chat along with our regular weekend one. Nothing but time these days.
  4. John. You never cease to amaze me with your wealth of knowledge.
  5. I just finished 76 days with the Venice and never had a problem with the TC. I used the Denecke JB1 and camera left it plugged in at all times. We even left it on the steadicam. My only beef with the Venice is that it never really gets quiet. The fan will shut down when you roll but never off completely.
  6. Looks like a beautiful day for tumbleweeds this Tuesday in Rio Rancho. I can't wait.
  7. Robert, I use a late model 2011 Mac Book Pro for on set play back and when I go to, System Preferences /Sound. At the top of the pop up window under "Input" it gives me the option to switch the 1/8th jack from a output to a input using the tab "use audio port for". I can then use a line level input. Is that option gone on newer models? If so that's drag.
  8. I am having a running battle with the 1st AC and how noisy the Preston motor is. He says it is within spec and I say I'm not sure what spec is but I'm telling you it's noisy when we swing any where near the camera. It's not a case of it belongs to him and it is part of his kit rental because it comes from the rental house. We have changed the A camera motor with the B cam one and there is a marginal difference. I will contact the rental house on Monday and have this discussion with them. I guess I'm really just venting and wondering if anybody else has had this problem and what your solution w
  9. I couldn't agree more with you Jon. Gordon sorry if this thread has gone in a different direction but since you asked what features we would like. As others have mentioned a SM tyle TX the size of maybe a SMQV with 48V that has variable out put voltage 50,100, 250MW to act as a stand alone radio boom would be amazing! The only reasn I say the size of a SMQV is to take advantage of the dual AA more run time VS a single MP50. Keep the single screw in SMA and the the 5 pin Lemo. I currently use the Ambient UMP II with a SMQV and I know my boom ops would love to cut down on the size and weight. I
  10. I agree with Jon. I too love my SM's and the ability to change the output W on the TX's. In the studio I always run at 50mw to conserve battery life and keep them cool, but on those crazy location days it is nice to have the ability to kick thiings up if needed. I run SMV's, SSM's for talent and SMQV's for my radio booms and car plants. These days I'm lucky to get a SSM on some of the wardrobe and actors have become very tech savy to the fact that smaller TX's are available. You can't make all the people happy all the time I know but if you could i
  11. that did it Jack. I unplugged the battery then reconnected and all is well now.In the heat of the moment I never thought to look under the male velcro camera had put on the back. Thanks!
  12. HI Jack, Yes it's plugged into power now. I can not access the menu screen or turn it off.
  13. So we came back from lunch and I went to jam the JB1 and pushed the button to get to the menu screen. Now it is frozen and no matter how long I hold the button It won't turn off. Any suggestions? Thanks
  14. 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
  15. 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.
