    Deity Connect.

    If the sound quality is good this might be rather nice for a light (well, and affordable obviously) 2 channel ENG camera hop.

    Sanken Cs-M1 new mike

    Still no more opinions/comments on this mic? Can't seem to find anything new on Google or Youtube either.
  3. Hey, There are some lav hiding accessories out there, but most I think are for end-address mics like DPAs and Sankens. I've been using DPAs and in have found the DPA concealers brilliant for most TV/reality situations. However, one of my DPAs broke (I've yet to confirm if it's the MicroDot connector or, somehow, the capsule) and for a backup I turned to the Lectrosonics M152/5P which I hadn't really bothered to try out that much even. Lo and behold, it sounded ok. Now I'm wondering if anyone knows of any nice mounting solutions for them, since the side-address grill gives less flexibility when taping them. Rycote Overcovers work in some situations for instance, but unlike an end-address mic you can't really do it the other way around, meaning taping to the clothing and having the fur against skin to minimize rubbing sound. Hush Lavs and cutting a hole to the side? Something else? Input appreciated.

    NAB 2018 Products update

    The Rode Ambisonic mic comes with a full mount + shield kit. A bit cheaper than the Ambeo, I'll be waiting how they stack up to each other (and how well the windshield does) but for what you get this + a MixPre6 should be an amazingly affordable and compact dedicated set-up for surround ambiances etc.

    Experience in Russia

    Never been but as I live in the neighborhood I've heard things... The main one being that customs is super-strict with your gear, apparently you're to catalogue (with pictures? Not sure) pretty much every separate item, possibly down to individual batteries, lav hiders etc. to avoid trouble.
  6. I've only been to Vietnam as a tourist, but some googling around would suggest that shooting in Vietnam requires permits, which according to the sites advertizing production and fixer services aren't hard to get. On a hunch, I probably wouldn't bring anything bigger than a Zoom unless I or a production person had procured the necessary permits.
  7. I'm so, so sorry. Maybe we ought to let this thread die already.
  8. Maybe I'll just hang a metal plate on my chest whenever near a body of water and ask the spirit of the amazing Steve to protect me.
  9. In case it doesn't work I'll also bring one of those dangerous animals handling outfits for extra protection and chlamydia antibiotics for bribery.
  10. Good to know, thanks Nate! I would imagine the show itself has some bouncing around different locales, don't have the details but I'm imagining food/travel/lifestyle. Apparently two days off per week, so I should even have a chance to activate tourist mode and get mauled by a koal, then subsequently eaten by a huntsman spider!
  11. It's starting to look like I might be doing a gig Down Under. I've already checked that most of my wireless is in the new permitted frequency range. However, in here in Finland we're required to get a license to use our gear from the Comms Authority. Is there a similar thing you need to do in AU? Cheers, Karri

    Hardwired Lavs

    DPA mics are great (right up there with Sankens) and have a system of interchangeable connectors, including an XLR one. However, for the price of one DPA mic and one adapter you could probably have the whole 4 hardwired OST's...

    Lectrosonics L-series

    Cheers. I already sent a mail with the serial numbers and a general question if they know of any improvements devices with those serial n/o's should have.

    Lectrosonics L-series

    I just got 3 sets of LR/LMb. I've been using the green Varta 2600 mAh rechargeables but while they fit fine in the LMb, they seem to be too big for the LR, I can't close the battery door reliably. I already ordered battery eliminators for them, but just in case can someone recommend rechargeable AA's that properly fit inside the LR's?

    Sennheiser Frequency Mod

    The 800 band Sennys also have another 2 MHz wide free slot in the upper range. Someone doing Sennheiser maintenance can do a firmware update to your Sennys that only leaves the allowed frequencies selectable, making them totally legal.
