  1. I bought a ktek backpack a few years ago for a docu shoot that was in the Philippines. We had to carry our gear a lot when the vehicles could only get us so close. It worked really well and was a huge time and arm saver. I could just grab the pack from the van and I was off not having to take multiple trips. I used it with an orca bag housing a 633 and a few SRCs. You can cram a lot of stuff into it although that can make it heavy as reported above. Overall a solid bag and lots of room for accessories. Also the “raincover” is great to keep your gear hidden.
  2. Neutral sells a heavy duty version that is outdoor and water rated. They have males, females and chassis connectors. The male model number is NC3MX-HD
  3. Isn’t it cheaper to just buy 8 or 10 smart batteries than buying a whole new recorder and possibly new wireless if you use s nova with their receivers. If you have a proven system I’d go with that and just pickup some more batteries and maybe an additional charger. You could even add in solar charging to the system for still less than investing in a new recording system.
  4. Yes. I usually buy the longest they will ship (102” I think) and then cut to the length I need for my project.
  5. Look a little further down and you’ll see the new product demonstration as well.
  6. What will be the cost of the 8 bay and what is the shipping like to the states?
  7. I’ve used both external fasteners such as the L and T plates and also the standard end fasteners. Both have held up well. I’ve never had an end fastener fail. I’ve also never lost a bolt from any of my fasteners. I usually just order lengths and cut my own and invested in the jig to drill the holes for the end fasteners. If you have any basic machine skills you can bore and thread the extrusions for the end fasteners. It’s pretty quick and easy and the end fasteners are way cheaper than the external fasteners. Make sure you get all of the pieces into the slots before assembling bec
  8. Axient only has a 2ms delay when in standard mode. Goes to 2.9ms when in high density mode. Don’t see what the problem is here considering lectro digital hybrid is 3ms. I’ve demoed the high end Sony system and it sounds excellent and it’s has a superslot compatible receiver now. I’m demoing the Shure Axient tomorrow.
  9. Ambient just released their quickpole 5 series. That might be a good option to look into. New carbon fiber design, plus a solderless design for the cable.
  10. There is also a single channel for $995 if you wanted to use a quad multi viewer at village. If you owned one already or if village was feeding it could save you $1000. I like the idea though. Could you also feed it to a switch and run it over a fiber run together with Dante?
  11. Never room in the camera truck anymore, especially on multi camera series. I work out of my 7x14 trailer. I thinks it 7’ high so plenty of space to stand up. I’ve been thinking of buying a new trailer that is longer as I am constantly running out of space. 18-20’ I think would be great. I’ll have to take some pictures of it. I’ve done a lot of custom work on it. Full battery and power system, ramp upgrades, A/C and heat pump unit, work tops, drawers, shelves and cabinets, e track for strapping, hooks. I can hang a hammock when unloaded for lunchtime naps.
  12. I personally think that the 2 capsules sound very similar when properly positioned. I used the MK4 in that instance because he liked to move forward and backward and side to side a little so it gave me a wider pattern for that without losing his voice on the sides of the pattern of the MK41. I thought it worked really well.
  13. I recorded an interview a number of years ago with an MK4 on a CMC6. If you don’t mind a religious video you can look it up on YouTube, Patterns of Light. It’s a 3 part series and all 3 have the interview from that mic. I would be surprised if I have the original audio files anymore, but that should give an idea of the sound.
