  1. You must always have a backup of everything. They will always wait for a PA to make a run to get a new camera body, but heaven forbid that production has to wait on sound.
  2. I used Neumanns with a VdB 48 v cable to Audio Ltd xmttrs. Worked great.

    HHB Dat

    I used two HHBs for several years, often in extreme environments with very few problems.
  4. I was told the reason Schoeps crackle when humid is the lacquer that is the insulation on the wires in the capsule develop hairline cracks and enough moisture can cause a short.
  5. I used 184, 185, 81 & 82 for years with never a humidity problem. My Schoeps on the other hand.............
  6. The original Location Sound Services was owned by John Glascock. When John closed up shop, Dick Sr. asked if he could use the name. The rest is history.
  7. I have a friend who has an ex Le Mans Lola that he converted to a camera car that can easily exceed 200 mph.
  8. I climbed up a rope ladder onto a ship underway with a 4.2 over my shoulder and a boom in my left hand. It was even scarier descending!
  9. I use BST25 in 216 MHz with phase right antenna. Excellent range. Granted, sound isn't great, but good enough. Client and agency are not worthy of IFB's, considering the way they treat them. Cheers!
  10. I use headphone out. Perhaps either a cable or camera setting problem? Cheers! I use headphone output with no problems. Cheers!
  11. Hi Jeff, When I made the switch to DAT, I went with the HHB. Heard too many Stella and Fostex horror stories. Gary used to boom for me and he told me about a horror day with you on top of a process trailer when you finally figured out the reason the Stella kept popping out of record was because the sun would hit a sensor inside the machine! I chose Cantar when I went HD and was very happy. Do you remember the Sony WM-D6 Pro with 60Hz sync? I rigged 3 for John Glascock to be strapped on Arri SR's that would auto roll when the camera did for a doc he did on the Yangtze River in the 80's. Cheers and thanks for your site. Traut
  12. BST-25, 216 MHz with Phase Right antenna yields excellent range and sounds pretty good.
  13. Antoine was a wild man! He stayed with us for a few days in LA in the late 80's. I wonder where he is now? Cheers!
