  1. Ram mount makes some nice kit for tablets and phones. www.rammount.com I have no interest in the company, just a happy customer.
  2. Tales, that has been one of my issues with the Mini. I liked the sloped surface bag I built which was version 2 for me. I have been using my version 3 for a while and it is ok. Been thinking about building another one, taking some of the ideas from the Aaton cheese plate design. What you don't see in my version 3 bag is the Hydra system. It is under the cover closest to the body. Three receivers. Two are in use, the third one I am waiting on the Melody preamp to allow the third receiver to work on the AES input. Included is two RF preamps and a RF distribution system. Once I have a Melody in hand I plan on seeing it I can reduce the size of the bag and lighten it some more. The Hydra system I believe can be made smaller, which will help. My RF system is cobbled together from various pieces. My thoughts are to only use one side with RF bits and the other would just be the antenna on each wireless receiver. David
  3. LDF-5 1db loss per hundred feet at 600MHz. Great for fixed installations, but a bear on location!!
  4. Also look into lease purchase. Start with what you really need, then add. Look at older gear, still works saves a bit of dollars. What is surprising is what you end up using day in. Small mixer/recorder, boom, 1 or 2 wireless, has covered many jobs. Start there, rent the extras if you need them. Many of us have GAS, I am one of those persons. If I were just starting out, simple would be the direction I would take.
  5. This is so funny. I have been working for a client that produces political ads. Just a month ago I worked on one of their shoots. Their client is a doctor running for office. Two day shoot. The doctor does not wear any kind of face covering. I asked him at the beginning why no face covering (crew of course is wearing face coverings), he says it isn't necessary that they don't work. Folks this is a trauma surgeon for a major hospital. I bet if he showed in surgery with no mask heads would roll. Very cavalier about taking precautions. I am wearing a mask and face shield during this shoot.
  6. Well that's a bummer to hear Ritter is gone. Always did first rate work.
  7. One free kitten with Lectro purchase over 1000usd.
  8. Yep you need to turn in all of your Schoeps. Will send the address!!
  9. Thank you SG, been awhile since I took one apart the older TRX units simply pried apart. After this accident I did buy cases for my units.
  10. Todd if my memory serves, the cases pry open. I had to send my to Trew in Atlanta for repair. The production company paid, since the camera operator dropped the unit. David
  11. Was on an interview shoot with him after James Brown passed. Super nice fellow RIP
  12. I think it might be some form of a pod people.
  13. Philip even after a vaccine, the world will need to go through several cycles (read years) of further testing. Just like current flu vaccines, it is hit or miss some years. Hopefully over time people will build some resistance the Covid-19 and its offsprings.
  14. A hardy pat on the back for Glenn!
  15. Thanks for the reply, Nate. Yes they are cat like. Can curl into a small space or stretch out to push you off the bed. There is a neat lady in Sydney, that maintains a FB page called "Fans of Alice in Wooferland &Xanthie" Her hounds speak to the world in Greylisch. Definitely fun if you have a hound. Also check out Richard Skipworth in the UK. https://www.richskipworth.co.uk/ He is an illustrator that has Greyhounds and has produced several books all Greyhound owners need on their bookshelf. Here is a shot of our boy upside down and our little girl who thinks we humans are for her pleasure. David
  16. Tom for the cool factor, your Etek is the bomb.
  17. Most Greyhounds I have encountered over the years have been healthy. If they are making money, then they are taken care of. Before adoption took off in the world, historically hounds were put down in large numbers. The industry at its peak was breeding upwards a 100,000 dogs a year. With no adoption to speak of, most hounds were disposed of. These numbers only apply in the USA, I don't know about the rest of the world. So with more publicity about racing, I think the tracks and owners started doing a better job of caring for the dogs. In the twenty years my wife and I have been involved with Greyhounds we do the best we can to help. Thanks David
  18. After nearly 1000miles (1600km) yesterday we returned with 15 Greyhounds from a track in Florida. Up at 2am, then drove to a point just south of Valdosta, GA, met the hauler and returned to Nashville in one very long day. A few photos of those lucky Greyhounds.
  19. Heading to Valdosta Thursday to meet a Greyhound hauler and will be returning to Nashville with 15 Greyhounds. Plenty more if anyone is interested. Thanks David
  20. Thanks John, they really are a sweet breed. One of the standing jokes among Greyhound owners is, you have adopted a 45mph couch potato.
  21. I know this is not a pet related forum. Due to the Covid-19, the remaining tracks in Florida are now closing as opposed to must close by the end of 2020.What this means now, about 5000 Greyhounds are going to need homes immediately. The hope has been that the hounds would be release in smaller groups.My wife and I have been adopting and fostering retired racing Greyhounds for the past 20 years. We are taking several into our home to join our present two hounds.Anybody that has a Greyhound or used to have one knows what amazing animals they are.Please check Greyhound adoption groups in your area. The big one is Greyhound Pets of America with chapters in many towns.Thank you for considering adoption.David
  22. I built a bloop light for use with non-sync cameras, especially GP in cars. Quick simple.
