  1. Wondering if the 633 models work with the new 833. Have you had a chance to check? Ready to buy if it works. -Thanks!
  2. Seems like bad advice to me Jason. Successful wireless involves optimizing a number of interrelated parameters. Your advice might push a marginal rf situation into failure. Get the right antenna.
  3. I liked the grommet idea. Found this at Ace, part #405942-M. I.D. 5/16". Gives you a nice big diameter and still allows push to select.
  4. Yes, mine will output to two LTs. This is my backup/small bag alternative but got to thinking what a nice boom setup.
  5. MixPre-3 seems like a boom op alternative to an MM-1 with backup timecode recorder for $50 more. Just received one and these things are tiny! Impressive little gadget!
  6. Trying to allocate my bag freqs. Here in AZ I've had good success with talent transmitters in the A1 (470-537mhz) block. I currently send com and ref cam feeds on Senn, G band (566-608), usually in the higher freqs. Trying now to wedge an SRc for camera hop in B1 (537-608) fed by Blk. 21 (537-563) or 22 (563-588mhz) transmitters (50-100mw). At least 2 block (50mhz) separation between talent/hops/coms seems to be a good target. Antennas can be separated sometimes but usually they'll live in the bag. Suggestions?

  8. Since relative mics/mouth positions constantly change, mixing both mics is rarely a good idea as it will result in moving comb filter frequencies- an ugly sound at best. This can't be corrected by moving one track relative to the other in the timeline. Typically, for various reasons, one source will be more appropriate and the other can be feathered in for problems (clothing, distortion, off mic, etc.) On rare occasions I've delegated the two tracks to different frequency bands and been able to use them together. A good quality boom mic and similar sounding lav make it that much easier.
  9. I did a job using the Eumels and it was fine. Not having to change the HMa voltage is one less detail for this tired old brain.
  10. Looking at purchasing a Lectro MCA5X for my HMa. I'm wondering if my two Ambient Eumels will work. Anyone have any experience with this?
  11. Weird to this not too technical guy. No load voltage to ground is the same on both legs of the PS-1A. I don't understand the huge difference swapping phase. Oh well- it's working.
  12. So l flipped the NTG3 cable phase and problem went away. NTG3 doesn't like portable 48v solutions. Weird.
  13. That was my thought but the NTG3 works fine in the studio and hard wired to my 688. Looks like NTG3/PS1A compatibility problem.
