  1. I've never really thought of wanting a wireless boom for bag work... I'm thinking extra weight to hold, extra batteries to monitor, extra frequency to coordinate, reminds me of an old saying "The most expensive radio mic is almost as good as a $10 lead" LOL
  2. Big day had by the boys..... Lochie (4)( Propeller tail ) and Smooch (3)( Poo eating weirdo).. The most gorgeous Lily (12 years old ) .... Loves almonds, apple skins and apple doughnuts ( the Japanese peeler/spiralizer gets lots of work ) scratches around the neck and having her hand held....
  3. I did a tour of Islay late last year, six distilleries in two days, whisky at breakfast was quite lovely! Stayed overnight IN Bowmore distillery, beautiful until the peat smoking was started up.....
  4. I have done a lot of recording in surgery over the last few years, my set up with cos-11 into lectro has never had problems from any high frequency medical equipment, including the cauterising systems. The smell does put me off meat for a while ( usually only lunch.... )
  5. If one of your group has a drone get through before them, there weird shaped batteries attract to much attention and get the agents a bit over zealous with ordinary VLocks.... from experience.....
  6. I like the term "Agency Bling" for IFB units....
  7. Have a great one Jeff! All the best!
  8. Does anyone know what the dimensions of the Lectro spring clip fastening set screws ( part number 28832 ) are? I've been searching but not finding... http://www.lectrosonics.com/US/Products/product/116-28832.html
  9. I think that the production folk who book the flight for you need to clarify and get an authorisation note from each airline.
  10. My favourite boom... takes a bit of getting used to, the angle can snooker you sometimes..
  11. I like the idea of a two bay version for my 633 bag.
  12. I worked on an international doco with the cam assist flying his drone ( great shots!) and as I couldn't do sound while it was up I helped him set up ( ahhhh, my inner nerdiness! ) He let me fly it as thanks, but boy did he generally pucker up when he thought I was heading straight for the mountain side!! We had problems getting his batteries through security occasionally due to their being odd shapes and sizes, so I made sure I got through ahead of him....
  13. I am very impressed with the Orca bag, great build and the internal frame makes it feel solid. I've teamed it up with the Stingray harness, best of both worlds IMHO
  14. Smooth work Mike.
  15. A man born with a golden voice.
  16. I am loving my Stingray harness mated with my Orca bag. When I want to wear the harness on its own I just connect the two upper carabenas on each side and it hangs in there, ready to reconnect the bag.
  17. Sounds like you have to develop a deep personal relationship with Zaxcom as you will be sending it home for maintenance. This is the main reason I have not ventured down the Zax road as sending things back from Australia is expensive of dollars and time.
  18. Only available for USA at the moment...... CURSES!!!
  19. Apart from the price of the Lectro RATPACK I have found them great. As far as the set screws go, nothing a drop off nail polish won't hold.

  21. View from my cart.. in a studio with closed doors and a messy camel...
