Sennheiser EK3041 slot recievers

I have a chance to get a couple of Sennheiser EK3041 slot recievers for a low price. Does anybody know if they will work in my two Panasonic P2 cameras? I have an HPX3700 and an HPX370. I would just need the Panasonic adaptor, right?

 

Also, would G2 or G3 transmitters work with the EK3041 if they are on the same frequency block? Or would I need another type of transmitter?

 

Thanks!

SK50 / SK250 / SK3063 / SK5012 / SK5212 SKP30 and SKP3000 transmitters will work with them. The 3041's are tuned to 16 fixed frequencies, but can be reprogrammed by sennheiser pretty cheaply.

The 3041's fixed freqs can be flashed at home with a PC and the proper hardware (some rental houses may have this as well). There is also a bank of variable freqs which can be easily set on the receiver by the user with no additional hardware required. New, these sets are quite expensive. I would make sure you have a lead on some Tx that are within your budget before springing for the receivers.

I've seen mention of it in the service manual but wasn't sure if sennheiser would be willing to supply it (or the software)

I am probably not going to make the purchase. I don't want to mix my gear too much. I have mostly lectros and Sennheiser G2/G3 series, so having another type of mike connector seems unwise. Want to keep my backup mikes with TA5 and 1/8 inch connectors, don't wanna add a lemo to the mix, because I would have to invest in another type of backup. O would also have to make a custom lemo to xlr or TA3 to use it as a wireless hop along with a G3. Seems like I should spend the extra dime and just go with the SR series for my camera. I would rather just go to all lectros and stay compatible with other peoples' gear if I am on a multi cam shoot. Seems wiser this way.

Hi Wyatt,

Am I right in thinking that the proper hardware will be both difficult to find and very expensive?  I have a few of these Rxs that I'd love to reprogramme myself if possible without sending them away on holiday...

:)
