  1. We are using over 5 months now, Timecode Systems Ultrasync ONE. No problems so far, we have damage one cable (at BNC termination, not DIN). I am charging them every two days; 20 hours of operation / 10hr continuously and still has battery lifetime for 3-4 hours. Size is small. I like the silicone case with velcro. Is there a 90 degrees of DIN connector?

    Best Lavs?

    Capturing a motorbike from distance during dialogue will sound the same with XX.XXX equipment and X.XXX equipment. In terms of good quality gear: Currently I am first assistant sound* for a big budget tv drama in Greece. We are using Wisycom, Sonosax, Sanken, Sennheiser, Rycote etc; all the well knowning manufacturers. I like the combo between Wisycom - Sanken - Sonosax. Sometimes we win the battle of good audio, sometimes we lose the battle. TV Drama take place in 1900 - 1920 year, so the challenge is big of not capturing modern background noise. Generally I am a big fan of Sennheiser MKH 70, Sennheiser MKH 50, DPA 4071, Sanken COS11D in terms of microphone. I have been impressed with the headroom and sound quality of Sonosax SX-R4+. What I am missing from Wisycom, is the ability of change settings from distance (let's say bluetooth ability), because if we need to change battery or gain or frequency to the transmitter, clothes is not an easy to deal with it (bonus: make friends at wardrobe dept.). *Good film sound starts from a good first assistant sound; make sure you get one. BTW I have no clue if I am good or medium or bad first assistant sound lol
  3. Something like this will help? https://ursastraps.com/product/backstraps/
  4. Does your microphone has been wired for Lectrosonics and need to be re-wired for Wisycom? I am not sure if Lectrosonics and Wisycom shares the same wiring scheme. Check it out.
  5. Agree, Wisycom manuals isn't helpful at all.
  6. Story takes place around 1905-1909. Live-physical location at Museum of the City of Athens. We can't touch anything from museum, only some paintings (modern era); so that doors with glass behind gave my nightmares. It's the most interesting project I started as assistant sound - boom op after many years. PS. This is going to be a television drama series, 30 episodes. We are shooting 5 pages per day so far. Thanks to Allen Lee Williams III for the black jacket recommendation.
  7. That's a good test for Deity products under Sonosax mic preamps I really like the sound from R4+
  8. I have found to use it mostly at male actors. Works well, but not everytime. Although, I can vouch for that accessory. Most of times you need to be fast, so a great addition to your kit and cheap.

    Schoeps CMD

    Nothing has been changed in electronics since then. Also, I am not sure if Schoeps is positive to develop this product further; so I am not holding my breath.
  15. I don't understand, sorry. Are you searching a line input device?
  16. So sad Rest in peace, Mr. Malcom
  17. I have been impressed with the new one from Rycote.
