Another day with RED

Recommended Posts

Doco shoot, happening in 2 adjacent rooms at the same time.  Me solo on sound.  I work with the A cam doing interviews, verite etc in one room, B unit is a solo shooter with a...Red Epic in the other.  Ok--so in addition to recording the wirelesses from that set on my rig and a 2nd rig, we need a mic on the camera as well.  Lots of emails re: ref-track hop+TC box+mic mounting on the camera.  On the day: oops!  The brand new RED firmware has eliminated P48 mic powering!  So....Mozegear PAPI to the rescue again--plugged into the back of the mic and powered off of DTap.  Be warned, folks: it's now not just the Alexa Mini that needs phantom+preamp love when the client asks for an onboard mic!

Crazy??? Why would RED do that???

Am guessing this was a RED Epic-W? (or is it an older DSMC1 Epic?)
