  1. Does anyone know; if a monitor only has HD/SDI input, will it be able to receive a 3G SDI signal? I may be purchasing a used Marshall dual monitor that has only HD/SDI but most likely it'll be plugged to the output of a teradek bolt receiver. Cheers! pablo
  2. After some research and reaching out to the previous sound guy on the show I confirmed that the only way to do what the director is asking for is getting a transmitter plugged to the direct outs of my 664 set to IFB mode for each of the talent tracks. We only have 3 cast members on this show, so it's doable but probably not worth it... Thanks for the input everyone.
  3. Looked into icoms. Interesting but not something I would invest on just for this show. Thanks for the tip.
  4. Glen. That's the point of the setup. It's not a fiction shoot and they are aware that they won't led be heard even when off camera.
  5. That's what I thought. Thanks Larry. Any ideas on how I could accomplish such a setup without compromising the audio quality of the main program?
  6. I have a director who would like to listen into the individual transmitters of the talent without having to go through my feed. He mentioned that in the last he has used an R1a to do this. My question is: if I set my talent transmitters to IFB mode so that he could tune in with an R1a, would the quality of the audio that I would be receiving be affected? Pablo
  7. I just finished this upgrade to my bag and wanted to share. I've had this design for a while but had not gotten around getting it done. It's a 3D printed bracket (or dashboard). I copied the idea a while ago from Pascal's original aluminum bracket. This one is very light and cost me CAD$120 to print (about 12 hours). I used PLA plastic fillament, but will probably go for nylon next time as I already have ideas to improve the design.
  8. http://3diosound.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=33&products_id=47 Maybe this would work better. You'd have to negotiate mounting it on the camera...
  9. Thanks John. Great find. But at $41 per connector and $17 per meter of cable, a 4 xlr snake seems not too bad after all...
  10. Thanks John. Indeed, that's for now the solution... But so many connectors!
  11. True Glen. The cinela is on the list. But still big for what I need.
  12. Peter, like Glen said, it's a cinela Leo, but it's there because I was trying to 3D draw one to adapt it to the SPS200 but it proved easier said than done. I currently have it on a Rycote kit 4, but I'm looking for a smaller footprint. The mic is not extremely sensitive to wind, so I figured the cinela cage with decent fur would suffice. I have a project coming soon that requires me to be far from the mic and that's why I'm looking to make an extension. With the right tools and parts it should be quite easy. But the trick is finding the right parts... The link you shared is for a bigger connector. Once I find the part I'll share it here.
  13. Thank you Craig. I did look into Lemo under the same assumption, but no luck.
  14. Hello, I want to make an extension cable for my SPS 200 mic and was wondering if anyone knew the reference number for this connector. It looks like a regular 10 pin hirose connector but instead of being push/pull, it has a locking thread. I'm having a hard time finding it on the hirose website and contacted TSL (soundfield) a few days ago, but haven't received a reply. Thanks, Pablo
  15. Dominique! Contact me, I've been using the db25 connectors for a while and they are great. They're very easy to make and to find in Montreal, I can show you how to do it or we can do it together.
  16. There's also a hidden pouch in the front.
  17. Thanks. Indeed, the idea is to get rid of all the extra material on regular mass produced bags. The back flap is there to leave access for a cl6 to be attached. This again was "inspired" by Pascal's design. The Velcro that covers the entire flap is so that it stays in place while not in use. The pouches are designed with Mollie attachments. It's a system used by the military on they're tactic gear. There's a wide variety of pouches available so the idea is to be able to move them around as needed.
  18. Jack. The bag cost me $800 Canadian. It's definitely not cheap, but I believe it's worth it for me. I think kortwich bags will run about the same.
  19. I just picked up my new bag. Custom made by protogear (local Montreal prototyping company). Inspired by Pascal's Kortwich bag, but added a Mollie system to attach different pouches.
  20. Just finished these for a friend. Switchcraft connectors are super hard to make but are much more solid than Rean.
  21. Indeed. I'm working on an NP35 battery setup. Only problem is that I'd need 2 batteries to get the same rating as an NP-1, which makes it too big. I may make a compartment at the bottom for the battery. I used KODRA which is basically the same as cordura. Lined it with some soft fabric to give it the Herschel look.
  22. 633 mini bag. Made it myself. This is a first prototype.
  23. I made this bag for a friend and thought I'd share here. The 607 is ok, but still looking for a better solution. Pablo
