    URX100 reception

    That might be it, just the different housing alone on the urx with all that camera spray. If I get a chance to run my double antenna test I will also play with articulating arm’ing the urx away from the camera a bit.

    URX100 reception

    None - my test was on 2x sony fs7’s with cabled returns for testing purposes. I know many unmentionable rf factors could be at play in any given situation so who knows. I also - again know this is not what it was designed for - did a side by side with a qrx200 at my recorder. I recorded both tuned to same freq. I was toying with using urx’s in a pinch for extra talent receivers. The urx worked better than i expected in that test maybe 80-90%, audible digital artifacts that i heard were very slight and could be usable in a recording emergency? This urx product is very versatile in that respec
  3. that lock release has been an issue for me several times and i cant pin it to particular brand. I myself would never touch that slider but i know its standard practice for DIT to write protect. It gets loose and before you know it just inserting the card goes into write protect rendering the card useless unfortunately...unless there is a fix?
  4. This is amazing. I think the tap were ahead of their time

    URX100 reception

    understood. i failed to mention this last comparison was at relatively closer ranges. but getting close is all i care as its usually in the case of 2nd/3rd cam stuff etc. i will give it a shot with a modded audio cable and add an antenna and see how it works

    URX100 reception

    I am noticing lots of digital artifacts i the audio signal with URX's and my camera link vs rx200 at the same distance. wondering if there is anything to help improve reception? from a technical standpoint, curious if i can put a wire whip antenna attached to ground on the 1/8" connector (that connector is also carrying audio signal to the 1/8 input) to help put the 2nd antenna in the air similar to the standard antenna next to it, or will that not have any affect? -Ken
  7. Just wanted to report back on these antennas - i switched over to these replacing all my antennas and i love them. However sure enough i managed to figure out how to break them. Indeed like mentioned prior they are highly durable but not indestructible. Twice i have had some sort of impact on these antennas. although they dont show visual damage, the pin inside cracks and give the illusion the antenna is still functioning. Then one day you suddenly lose transmission/reception range and may think the device itself is failing. The way to verify is 1) the pin falls out (obvious) or 2) the pin is
  8. Great input thanks!
  9. I am finding myself more and more in situations where people want to wire themselves (maybe these current times have something do do with it??) the soundguys solutions zmt clips are great when i deploy them to talent because i can deal with how stiff they are and i like the grip factor on clothing once placed. The downside is the plastic breaks at the base of these clips and I’ve replaced 4 in the last year. Talent cannot seem to deal with self applying these clips because of how super stiff they are. I am looking at the clips linked below, curious if anyone has user feedback? The
  10. funny you said that - client suggested a headset mic just ordered a rental to go with the hidden lav and dual transmitters. glad to hear sounds like it worked out
  11. Curious if anyone has done as i am not sure how much time i will have to experiment. Its for a 360 tour in a noisy environment and i will have to rig up and go. Considering double lav, one traditional hidden at chest and one hidden in top foam of shield and allowing prod to go with best of the 2. Anyone with any personal experience and pitfalls i should watch for?
  12. I had my nova repaired, received it back, all was good for about 2 weeks and now i have the same coincell battery problem again with the error shown below. anyone else experiencing this issue or is it isolated to my unit? Anyone ever have zaxcom do a replacement of equipment under warranty or will i have to send it back again and pray for a repair? I cant stand the thought of being without it. Worklife would be sweet if it werent hinging entirely on this battery. I am burning thru batteries staying powered on and “waiting on sound” while I frantically replug all my settings when i lose power.
  13. is this, for lack of better description, the "talking thru a paper towel tube" sound that happens even though both parties are talking directly into phone (not speaker phone) with full bars? that drives me nuts spending most of my time trying to figure out what someone is saying in all the low pass sounding mud that seems to phase in and out. my wife and i started using whats app to talk on the phone and the voice quality is night and day. at first i thought it was android vs apple devices, att vs verizon services. but a virtual voice box makes sense why this keeps happening and is accepted as
  14. This solution I have might not be for everybody - but it took me years to refine this return from camera thing and I've landed on what i feel to be the most reliable for me personally. I use a lectro sma with a dual mono 1/8 connector wired lectro line level. I have the sma set to mode 6 and i feed sennheiser iem’s from camera - 1x for me and rest for director client script etc. 90% of my jobs work very well this way, or i can switch to a transmitter from my rig as needed. Sound quality is scary good. The lectro sma seems to be the one solution the handles all the various headphone output type
  15. Just wanted to report back, replacing lyre suspension with the classic ring/rubber band rycote combo did the trick for handling noise with this mic for my purposes
