  1. Hi all, I have been asked to do sound on a 5D shoot. - Mk2 or Mk3 (TBD). - Sometimes a pair of 5Ds. - It is documentary. - We will shoot in Armenia. - No post house on board yet. - Editor not yet confirmed. - Likely to stay like that until we return from Armenia. - First production meeting Saturday. I have some obvious concerns about sync. - I have only one Lockit. - My pair of Tentacle Sync boxes might not arrive by then. So plan is: ERX on each 5D; - 5D Left track - scratch mix (for PluralEyes) - 5D Right track - TC (for AuxTC Reader) For the interviews this seems fine (they will be boarded) For the event coverage (marches, concert etc) where cams will cut & roll at will, I plan to roll a continuous take on Nomad, as much as possible. I’ve downloaded trial versions of both programs to test the workflow, when I get my hands on a camera. Questions: - Could long audio and/or video takes cause problems with this sync set up? - What is the appropriate way to pad down the TC for 5Ds mic level input? - Any suggestions for improvements to this (provisional) system? - Anyone done this before care to share their findings? Many Thanks, B
  2. Need an answer to what I'm hoping is not too dumb of a question. My camera guy for these upcoming commercial shoots has sworn that he's operated his 5D with two individual tracks of audio. I don't see it being possible with just one mic input. Can it be accomplished via a splitter or a beachtek perhaps? Thanks!
  3. hey all, Im kinda in a pinch, on a small budget. I will be running sound for a single person interview w/ multiple takes this sunday. I have a 788t. Limo out to bnc is the only cable i have to use. Obviously the 5d does not have a bnc in. I dont have it in the budget for a Denecke time slate or timecode buddy. Does anyone have any suggestions on a way to sync my 788t (master) to the 5d without potential for alot of drift.. the good ol hand clap? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. thanks ced
  4. http://conversations.nokia.com/2013/07/19/we-like-the-sound-of-that-rich-recording-on-nokia-lumia-1020/ lately i've been seeing a lot of web commercials on youtube that were shot on 5D or whatever and using the camera mic for audio capture. on the url above the phone mic seems pretty good for what it is and at least there is a balance between the look of the image (40 mp) and the sound quality. nothing very 'new' in the sense of earth shattering but it shows that some product designers are actually thinking. at first glance, the audio capture mechanism sort of reflects the 'spirit' of zaxcom neverclip, and borrows from dual mic capsule microphones of the past. nokia1020haac.pdf
  5. I am shooting a little event where they will be using a Canon 5D Mark II to roam around and record a bunch of dogs at a small show where they come up and talk about their dogs and why they should be in the show. There will be a microphone from the House, and they have a board they run it out of. I would think the easy thing would be to use an eight-inch to XLR and plug into the camera that way with manual control on so that the boar was mixing the audio. If i don't have access to the board, do I run it through my Nomad and then try and plug into the camera? Do I use my ERX to send a hop from the board (going into my mixer) and through ZaxNet send the Hop to the 5D? I'm not really sure what to do here. Any idea's would help. Thank you
