  1. Hi, feel free to contact Danilo Romancino in my name, he is Italy based. +39 349 7464140 danilo.romancino@gmail.com He's very good, excellent English, with experience of working with me and international crews both in Italy, UK and Europe. He is very nice and professional, with exstensive experience in documentaries and reality tv. Because of the above, in the years he became a regular sound person in Italy for British, American and Irish crews. I can recommend him to the fullest extent. Best
  2. You are right. The only audio in sync is the one on the camera, so better not touch it.
  3. unfortunately, as the 688 came out there won't be an upgrade for the 664. I have the latest firmware. thanks though
  4. thanks Rado and Mark. All of us are running at 24 ND. Can't delay o/p as i'm on a 664 but offset is consistent and the AE is on it.
  5. hey all. Currently shooting on an f55 at 24 fps. jamming from a 664 (on 24hr run) via an acl 203 lockit. camera tc settings are: ext preset, free run and external source pops as soon as the lockit is connected. post says that my separately recorded sound is ahead of 1 frame on every clip. am I missing anything here? Thanks.

    SR9VBP lasting

    Just wondering how long would an SRb stay on, if powered with two 9V rechargeables, rather than two alkalines, through a Lectro SR9VBP adapter. The unit's output is set to the max, divmode set to switch. Thanks
  7. Ask to film at the front of the plane as it's further away from the turbines. You will be lucky if you end up on one of those MD/DC9 or 10. Best wishes
  8. Dear friends, How do Lectro block 21 and 24 work in Toronto? What blocks work best? Anticipated thanks Libero

    comtek 169

    Thanks, That's understood but I am asking if the non-popularity is because of the frequencies it's on and where. Or is it a matter that everyone just has 216's and it's easier to hire extra ones from friends? Looking to hear from people's experiences who are also willing to share their location please. Thanks!

    comtek 169

    Hi all, Just considering buying a comtek 169 ifb system and am not familiar with the different systems, I heard 169 is not the most popular one, can somebody shed some light please?
  11. George MacMillan is your man, he's got top gear and he's so scottish that you wouldn't understand what he says :-) And he's a great dude. weegiboy@yahoo.com
  12. Hi Mike, I'm asking how huge the difference is and hoping that someone can share their views. Have worked a few times with a B20 but I have no access to neither of the two at the moment. You seem to have experience of both and I would be grateful if you could spend a few words about it. Thanks in advance, meantime thanks John and Derek. Libero
  13. Hey all, Does the W20 windscreen affect the sound substantially more than the B20 and double layered B20S? Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks Libero
  14. hey all, wondering if anybody can send me a link to the latest sound rates cards relevant to the NY area? Nothing's on Local 52's website :-/ Thanks! Libero
  15. So, after a lot of thinking I decided to go for just a custom modified remote audio MDR 7506 headphones with talkback mike. I want to split the TA5 connector in 2 minijacks, one for a Lectro IFB system for my monitoring and the other for the tb mike to talk to the mixer through a skanky G2 system that I have. The final question is now the following: There are 2 versions of MDR 7506 talkback headphones that remote audio does, one with a dynamic mike and another with an electret. I would go for the electret, but does anyone have any thoughts on that?
  16. I would be listening from the boom straight from the box though
  17. I bumped into this fancy boom box system by remote audio, that has a talkback mic too. http://www.remoteaud...able_system_v2/ I was wondering if anyone could give me some impressions about it, hopefully both on wired and wireless use.
  18. Thanks all for your suggestions. I had a look around about the MM1 and it seems to me that mixers either use it on the actual signal path of the boom going to tape (that would require me adjusting the gain on behalf of the mixer from time to time) or just as personal hp gain on a dedicated line for me coming out of the mixer. Being often wireless (both on the mic and hp's), I would need to add bulk with a rx on the belt. I bumped into this fancy boom box system by remote audio, that has a talkback mic too. http://www.remoteaud...able_system_v2/ I was wondering if anyone ever used it, wireless or not. Thanks again!
  19. Hello, I am a boom operator and I decided to invest on a good monitoring system for myself. I need something with good freq range and excellent dynamic and I was thinking on investing on a Lectro IFB T4 Tx and a Lectro R1a receiver. I use Sony 7506 headphones. I would really love to hear suggestions from someone who has previously boomed or even just supervised with this monitoring setup. Thanks! Libero
  20. Izen, is this the one you are talking about? http://www.pro-sound.com/Merchant2/merchant.mvc?Screen=PROD&Store_Code=PSS&Product_Code=SSCHW20&Category_Code= what suspension does it go with?
  21. not sure what do you mean?
  22. Shall I buy a Rycote or Cinela ballgag for my CCM41?

    CCM41 roll off

    working with a 788 so rolloff pretty accurate. Shockmount is a lyre. How much do you cut off?

    CCM41 roll off

    Has anyone EVER used a CCM41 withOUT rolling the bass off? If no, how much did you have to cut out? Mic is at its 3rd week of usage from purchase and the need for an LP just came now, it got so sensitive all of a sudden. L
