  1. I'd love to hear if anyone has used it in a bag too or with a Scorpio via Dante....
  2. Hey Jason, have not figured a solution yet... kindly the camera dept. have allowed me to leave my Ambient nano plugged into the sync port so I am constantly feeding it timecode. The only functionality they loose out on by not using the sync port is for the ability to remote start and stop. Luckily the DP is a friend of mine and a good man so he doesn’t mind doing it. I’ll let you know if we figure it out! cheers.
  3. Sorry I was sending this from my phone and it appears to have gone through many times!
  4. Hello guys, i was wondering if anyone has ever worked with this particular set up before. The Arri umc-4 is an external follow focus brain. Unfortunately it uses the sync input (where we normally plug in timecode) of the RED. The umc-4 has a regular timecode input (5 pin lemo), we can get timecode to read on the umc-4 but it doesn’t go through to the RED. Has anyone worked with this particular setup before? Thanks!

  6. Hey Ryan, its not the 4060 that overloads. I think myself, Nevo and Constantin use Lectro smv and with that transmitter the 4060 is quite hot. With very loud shouting actors it's the transmitter that clips, not the mic, the 4061 being 10db less gives you more headroom to play with. I can't speak for other wireless systems. If you let us know what wireless system you're planning to use them with then we can advise.
  7. Thank you. Not quite a tentacle but I guess there's a lot more inside the box. Hope it has some interesting projects coming up!
  8. I also use smv and I have mainly 4060 but I have started to replace them with 4061 as the 4060 are a bit too hot with very loud actors so I'd recommend the 4061 if you're using Lectro.
  9. The next question will be how big is your hand! A picture would be very helpful if possible thanks.
  10. Nice! Looking forward to getting some. Haven't seen them in the flesh yet so I'm curious to their size, are they bigger or smaller than you thought?
  11. Yep I'd agree with Constantin, Slim is a useful tool but if I were you I'd start with a 4060/4061.
  12. Hey Klaus, Like Edward I'm wondering how the nanos work with the tiny Lockit. Can I have a tiny Lockit attached to my recorder and wirelessly transmit to 2 nanos on 2 cameras. Will they constantly receive updated Timecode from the tiny Lockit? If so, I'm in :-) Thanks.
  13. Thanks Chris I just saw that. A lot to like about these little machines at the price point I think...
  14. Can it decode and record M/S stereo? Sorry I don't see it anywhere. Looks like a very handy machine!!
  15. Hey Whit, thanks for that reply. I've gone ahead and ordered a 688 and an Aliha cl-12, looking forward to not having to patch things around all the time at the back of my cart and not loosing a channel for my comms mic! Also looking forward to trying the Penny and Giles faders Also congrats on your new cart, I use a similar setup to you and your cart is very inspiring!
  16. Hey John did you use a 688 and cl-12? What was it you didn't like? The Cantar X 3 looks amazing, quite a big difference in price though!
  17. Hey, I've been using a 788 and cl-9 happily for a number of years on my cart. I find I'm doing scripted drama with higher actor numbers and I do wish I had more channels available. Like many of you I've been waiting for a replacement to the 788 but there's none presently forthcoming (NAB 2016 anyone?!?). I'm just wondering has anyone been in my position and made the move to the 688 and a cl-12 and if they would care to share their feelings on it. Thanks in advance!
  18. Any updates on when we will get a European release of the SSM? Would love to try one!
  19. Yep that's a 'wow' all day long. My back feels better just looking at it....
  20. Hi Todd, I too would love to see a photo of that, myself and my boom op were talking about silicon concealers just today! Cheers.
  21. ​Thanks for that Constantin and Derek, might pick one up as €495 for the regular G3 IEM is too much for me these days....

    ​Hey Jesse, What is that and where do i get one please! Thanks.
  23. ​Hey Derek, have you used that tour guide version? it's €100 euro cheaper here.
  24. You're right Wyatt. I guess I'm just so used to and feel a comfort from knowing every actor is wired that it feels kind of wrong knowing two of them won't be wired! or I could just buy a bigger board I suppose!!
