  1. I have a couple lectrosonics ARG 50 cables that i would like to cut and reterminate in half lengths. Has anyone seen these bulky BNC connectors or have any idea how to install them

    Cantaress announced at NAB

    Anymore news on this? The initial press release came out a while ago and there's no new info on the Aaton site?

    Boom Stand

    This is brilliant! Back into the workshop for me!
  4. I think the Amazon has a pretty loud background noise. Put that same camera in an otherwise quiet room, add in hot temp and humidity and and you may as well be standing next to an A380
  5. I'm dealing with this problem at the moment. We're shooting in +40 C with humidity and the red cameras have what we call "Chernobyl" melt downs regularly. The Tilta backs are terrible, though we do seem to have some control over them. Are you sure camera department arent telling fibs? We've had both our lead actress and the DOP complain about them. I've sent samples to sound post to keep them in the loop. That's about all you can do. Cover your self and hope next time production won't bother with those silly little toy cameras.

    Story boards and shotlists?

    Are shot lists still a thing? I mainly do scripted drama and am constantly amazed about how much is made up on the spot. This is despite weeks of pre production and location recces.. we arrive to shoot and coverage is improvised on the day. I'm young enough to have grown up this way, but have fond memories of film school where the whole film was shotlisted and everyone had all the information to be able to get on with it. I'd love to know if this happens everywhere or just where I work.

    PSC RF Multi SR Six Pack

    I've done that through the supplier, it was a major pain for me, as I'd already had cables made up. The other problem was that the unit has been made wider, so it didn't fit in the bag that I had just had custom made!

    PSC RF Multi SR Six Pack

    I just received my six pack, and the new version does not have the db37 connector on the bottom. The only audio outputs are the side ta3's. This is not reflected on the psc website .

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    I don't think anyone would have the need to power these externally from the camera and have them power up/down as the camera does. Infact, this would be a bad thing to do. The nano's have such an excellent battery life that there's never a need to do this, and doing so would actually make problems more likely. They get turned on at the start of the day and do their thing all day without worrying about battery or wether its on or not. That's what's so great about them. Thanks Klaus for your prompt and thorough reply. Much appreciated!

    NEW: Ambient | NanoLockit

    I agree, this is annoying. I've contacted ambient about it. Let's see what they say
