    Smart slate question

    Save the cash. In fact, on a budget, use a regular slate! Those dollars would be better served using a sync box in my opinion if anything at all. Syncing footage isn’t hard unless you’re on a tight schedule or have a lot of it.

    Zaxcom trxla3.5 stereo as camera link

    I’ve been wondering this myself. I once had a Camera Link but sold it because I rarely need to send a stereo mix to camera and would prefer wireless that can function as a body pack if necessary. In another thread it’s pointed out that the input is unbalanced. I was also wondering if it is possible for the Trxla3.5 to receive TC via zaxnet and then embed that timecode feeding an rx200.

    Lectrosonics R1a to listen to individual talent mics

    Just off the top of my head: If you dial in the switch setting to a frequency you can actually hear the UHF frequency but it is very very low. It would be noisy but you could amplify that. Then you could set all your talent tx into IFB mode and set the R1a to scan for them. Then switch them back. This is all highly theoretical as I don't have any units with me now to test. Like everyone said, a lot to expect and not easy to switch once set up

    My version of the Magliner vertical cart.

    Jason, what is the rack case you have? How does it attach to the Film Tools upright?

    New Zaxcom Products announced!

    Isn't that a camera department item? I bring the smart slate and they bring the espresso!

    lav bullet

    Despite my appeal to this line of logic, I was told it was a replica and it was taken from me here at JFK.

    Equipment hopes for 2015

    If you remove all the stored frequencies then briefly depressing the button does nothing. It will of course still scan if depressed and held.

    WisyCom now available in North America

    I pretty much always run my transmitters at 50mw. No issues for me.

    cable organization

    I'm still working out the exact system for what goes in each bag. Once I do I'll write the cable types on the outside of the window. I like this system because it's modular and I can flip through them like a book to find the cable I'm looking for. If I want to have a certain group of cables on hand all day, rather than in the peli, the rings can open and I can just take the pouch I need.

    Small footprint, super light plug-on transmitter?

    I think Cory basically wants something like the attachment but maybe Lectro will announce something next Tuesday?

    Listen to camera return on X3 or X4 SD 633

    Yeah, the loopback setting on the 552 was something I never used but liked the idea of!
