  1. Thanks Millar for the feedback....Ok I will give it a shot and see what happens. I am hoping that the 216 Comtek Tx (with the BNC antenna) will help in the performance of the kit.
  2. Amazing article on House of Cards's on set workflow. Hope this inspires producers and directors alike to start working together (camera & sound!!!!) and use technology to create a better working enviroment for everyone on set. Kudos to HOC team and David Fincher for making this big jump! http://www.local695.com/Quarterly/summer-2015/7-3-house-of-cards/
  3. I like their 48v power solution design. Great for using it on the boom and probably very affordable. A much more compact alternative to the bulky Denecke.
  4. Pumping this thread to hear any real experiences with Comtek-216 Tx and Listen Tech 216mhz Rx. And/or Listen Tech Tx & Rx kit in comparison with the Comtek-216 kit. Thanks!
  5. Hello All! A client of mine from Montreal has a shoot coming up in NYC (Brooklyn) that i cannot do and just wanted to put the word out. Very simple interview (about 3 hours) 2 C300 cabled to camera and backup recording. Let me know asap and I will send out the details. Thanks and hope everybody is having a busy summer!
  6. Here's is a quick solution for the lack of locking connector on the Tentacle (some shrink tubing and extra elastic band provided by them)....so far I am very happy with the product. Still waiting on the IOS app!!
  7. I just had the same problem with my 201. Sent it to lectro and for $120 I got a brand new front panel. In my opinion totally worth it Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Wow, inspiring!...while we should focus on finding ways to diminish the use of plastic around the world (the root of this problem) this is definitely something that needs to get done. Technology could be a great tool if used appropriately.
  9. For all the above reasons, i have decided early in my career to stick with documentary, corporate work as much as i can. Of course, i am still pretty new to the game and i am not yet in a position where i can just do that, but when i can, i choose not to deal with huge crews. After all, like one of my mentors says, you can't change 60 years of history. Seems like DPs have been the kings since the early days and is not about to change anytime soon...
  10. Thanks Chris!...I just got a medium size a couple of days ago. I'm really happy with it, even though is not as compact as I would like. Great product at a great price, I highly recommend it. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. @ Christopher...Thanks for the quick response! and I will definitely take your advice. But just curious to know since the 416 is 250mm, same as body length of the small kit, plus there is 100mm extra (50mm on front and 50mm on the back). I am wondering even with a right angled XLR you still think the 416 won't fit?... Thanks and please know that i appreciate your input. The reason i ask is because unfortunately i don't have a store to go to in my city to try for myself.
  12. I am about to purchase one but before wanted to know if anyone has tried the small size with an MKH416 (maybe with a right angled XLR?). I know that Rycote suggests the medium size for the 416 but i also know that they suggest the modular kit 4 but most people i know use a 416 on a modular kit 3. So, anyone out there with the super-shield small that can confirm if the 416 will fit? Thanks in advance! p.s: senator, i know the "contact the manufactures", and i did
  13. Has anyone tested this product? http://www.trewaudio.com/store/Rycote-Super-Shield.html
  14. Hey SeeKai, I just finished soldering the cables. Unfortunately I don't have the camera with me so i tested with my SD302 and a recorder. I noticed that when i send tone (-20) the level is very low on the recorder (around -35). Is this normal?...the AF reading on the Rx&Tx seems fine (just over the middle) but the level on the recorder (at max) is very low. Settings: G2 Tx (sensitivity: -10) G2 Rx (AF out: +12) Recorder (line level input) Thanks again for your help!...will post pics later
  15. Thanks all!!! SeeKai specially (thanks so much for the clarity of your post)!!! ...and Senator for being Senator....JW is a great place despite all personalities Long live JW and its members for such a willingness for sharing and helping
  16. Sorry senator, english it's not my first language that is why i ask for the colour code method to make sure i don't miss understand....
  17. Hey Eric!!! Ok i know that this has been covered but i can't seem to wrap my mind around this wiring...i am a bit confused by the terminology shield/ground?...If you could please refer as red (hot) white (cold) and ground I am about to make a TA3 (SD302 tape out) to locking TRS (for senny G2Tx) and want to make sure i do it right. I want the sum of both L&R to make a mono feed for scratch audio. Also i am making the cable for the camera end (black magic pocket camera) locking TRS to standard TRS. Any special considerations for this cable? Thanks! p.s: I need it for tomorrow
  18. Hey guys, I have a shoot coming up with one of this miniature toy camera. I'm a bit reluctant when it comes to sending primary audio to this type of cameras. I have never work with one before and it seems like there will be a big wave of "dOps" jumping on the bandwagon..Should I treat it just like a 5D? Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  19. ^^ Well put JP fonseca and yes this applies the all South America...and probably other places in the world as well... And good luck finding the equivalent of Trew audio down there! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  20. +1! , surprised that Rycote haven't come out with such a product by now... I have worked with DPA "foldable"windshield and it's true that the "folding" concept is great, but the suspension that came with it wasn't good (lots of boom handling problems)...
  21. Good to know all these details (as they are new to me!)...my comment was purely and purposely nonsense as to emulate the usual re-designing process that goes on this board! But again thanks for the useful post (unlike mine!). And thanks sound devices for keeping up with new products for our community...although I don't see myself needing this machine anytime soon.

  22. I personally know Pascal and can assure you that when it comes to equipment he's all in...regardless of benefits. He is a real gear head and knows his stuff... Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  23. I see nothing wrong with this interface. One mic pre is plenty specially considering that this product will interface with a recorder/mixer that will provide 48v. Also, it helps to keep the price and size down. Congrats Pascal & Co.!
