    long shotgun on a dslr

    All of the above being said the new Sanken CS-M1 is perfect for DSLR mounting. There is a cold shoe mount for it also. It has the reach you need, is short enough not to be seen in the shot and sounds amazing. Main issue is that it requires 48vp for power

    K-Tek Boom Pole and Local Radio Station pickup

    You'll have to call Ktek and give them the specs on your pole, compressed length, extended length, number of sections, etc. Each pole requires a specific cable kit based on it's size. If your pole has a bottom XLR it's a "CC" kit, if it's a side of the pole exit it's a "CCR" kit. If you've never replaced the internal coil cable before be aware that it can be a bit daunting. OTOH you can send the pole back to Ktek and they will do it for you. Call them and speak to Karen. Here's the link to the cable kits.

    Which cable are you looking for, the internal coil or the pole to mixer jumper?

    That is not the internal pole cable. The internal pole cable is 3 wire but heavier conductors than the old pole cable.

    K-Tek Boom Pole and Local Radio Station pickup

    KTEK has a new coil cable that is being used on all their poles that addresses that issue. I had been telling them about the issues of the old thin conductor coil cable for years and they developed the new cable with heavier conductors, a matte finish outer jacket and slightly smaller coils. I have used the new cable and it's a vast improvement. As an FYI, they will be closed from Dec 21 through Jan 2 for the holiday week.

    Zaxcom ZMT3-Flex.

    Microdot connectors limit your choice of lavs that's for sure. Now who's going to be the first to offer a reverse (TA, Lemo, 3.5mm TRS to microdot) adapter?

    Zaxcom and DPA6060

    As a 6060 update, according to DPA the 6060 won't be available until the end of January 2019 due to production issues at the factory.

    Sennheiser MKH60: Any reports of counterfeits?

    416's yes, 60's no.

    DPA 4018C vs Sennheiser MKH50

    I would suggest that you check out the new Sanken CS-M1, an amazing new super cardioid entry from Sanken that seems to be replacing the MKH 50 with a lot of mixers. At 4" long and a street price of $895 it is something you should seriously listen to.

    ta5f line hookup (servo and non servo)

    For the TA5F it is. The TA 3 could also represent an XLRF and the wiring is the same. Note that the ground pin 1 is jumped to 3 in the TA3 are tied together making this an unbalanced connection. Follow Lectro's wiring and you'll be fine.

    ta5f line hookup (servo and non servo)

    Aside from the line level audio going to Pin 5 instead of Pin 3 for mic level there is no difference.
  12. You can hear & understand all the dialog without any problems. That's all that matters to the audience. It's all a creative decision.

    Getting back in the game... Need pole reviews.

    Take a serious look at the Ambient line of poles. One of the best line of CF poles.
