  1. Hows the mirror speeds on the Nova, is it painfully slow like Maxx and Nomad?, on movies I was never able to mirror in time for scene switches, had to hook them up with zaxconvert, the DIT's never liked it, but got used to it. Hoping the Nova is practical with this
  2. There’s a political event Monday I’m helping a friend find a sound guy for who’s filming for a candidate in South Carolina. anyone available Monday? Or can refer anybody you know who is good? 1 lav, a boom/ mixer, iso recording. Wireless tap from house PA, Full quality wireless hop to c300, If not available know anyone down there who has zaxcom gear, and could rent out a receiver? They have zaxcom lavs, but receivers r in for repair.
  3. for example, if we have 6 talent out on set, is there a single operation to disable all 6 TX, scan, auto pick, assign and enable the TX again?, or is it manually disabling each of the 6, scan and choose?, Be cool if there was a single "I'm feeling lucky" button. The trust zaxcom, and it re assigns all 6 with 1 button.
  4. \Rado boss, Have you tested the auto scan auto assign to transmitters feature they were implementing?, does it work well?, as in it mutes the TX, scans, assigns and you're back in action?
  5. I was thinking the same thing. Would have been a weapon if they had built in a camera link for 2.4 and uhf in one. Still a crazy setup. Will be using my camera link for uhf / second 2.4 feed.
  6. +1 for oasis, being a 12 channel recorder, the oasis would be great for small films teamed with Nova
  7. Sorry to hear all your hassle with production. I recently did a shoot on the north shore here in Hawaii. I sent 4 surfers out with 4 zaxcom TX with 4 countryman. The TX were in aquapacs. I warned production before the surfers went out that we have a high chance that due to impact from a surfer falling etc, that one or 2 may go down. 1 went down when a surfer went airborne and must of landed directly on the side the aquapac was strapped on, the water busted the seal and filled with water. This is probably worst case scenario since it's surfing with professional's. I invoiced and they paid out of pocket for a new LA2 since it was under their deductible amount. This is the first time I've lost a pack with aquapac on, but I had a feeling that at least a couple might go down under the circumstances. I made production agree to replacement if that happened before they entered the water. They gave the go ahead and out they went! Like previous comments, water damage will likely reduce the life of the TX, better to get them replaced. The good thing for you is it was fresh water. Salt water submersion is worst case.
  8. There is a zax net remote for tx control, but will it have zaxnet audio to erx? Hoping so.
  9. Yeh they r def a pain to Use. I think like u said once in hand banking will be quick and easy. I’m looking forward to auto freqing between bag and tx.
  10. I totally agree, but I also think small pots, or 5 medium and 3 small pots would have been a lot more flexible. The 633 has 6 faders. Love the banks, love the flexibility with the faders, but a little more would have been awesome.
  11. I am grabbing a Nova, but I have to say, if you look at what zoom has done with f6 and f8, they fit 6 and 8 faders in a very small space. I feel like 8 smaller faders for the Nova would have made this product vastly more popular, many gigs I do run 6 lava and a boom.... 8 smaller faders on a Nova would be really really really cool. 5 faders with what this mixer is capable of puts it in the middle grounds. 8 Smaller faders, do it, you will love it. 🙂
  12. Yeh I always have the. "!" come up on TC on Mini's when I leave the ERX on the camera all day.... makes sense because the ERX is lo fi, maybe like you said, the Mini sees it as an error. I've always ignored the "!" and never had a problem with sync in post.
  13. Does well, fairly close to the bigger zepp's, My complaint is the fluff can't be removed, it's permanently on there. Would have been nice to be able to take it off for inside work or low wind, for a little more clarity.
  14. I have the Mini Cmit in a Cinela Cosi, wonderful!, Fantastic, can shake it around wobble it up and down and it transfers no noise.
