    [FS: Audio] Hypercardioid Mic Pair Kit - ATU873r

    If you're in need of a good, basic hypercardioid condenser mic to expand your sound kit, the Audio Technica U873r is a great place to start. These mics have been used on projects from short films to...

    Thanks for the correction, Paul! I had read through the user manual and somehow missed that function! Though, that does sacrifice the audio output, so no cam hop or Comtek in that case. So, it’s...

    For the MixPre-3 II, it takes TC in only. It does not send it out. Options for TC in are the mini HDMI in and the 3.5mm aux in.

    Your best bet is to use Tentacle Sync boxes.

    Considering most recorders that can run on AA batteries pretty much suck those batteries dry fairly quickly, I’d imagine there’s been no improvement in that department.

    Seems to me that they sort of did this in reverse, but not as a 633 replacement. Just looking at physical design and layout, it looks like the Scorpio followed the MixPre-10T as the much-more-capable...

    It’s not recording simultaneously. It’s an “instantaneous” transfer. Shortly after recording starts, a backup copy begins transferring to the USB thumb drive. This transfer may be completed shortly...

    For that, I pour Coke on the floor the evening prior (so it gets good and sticky). Then I invite the neighbors over to talk and answer phone calls throughout the movie.

    Then how is it, as your thread title suggests, the perfect camera? This is why it’s futile trying to assign an objective value to such a subjective matter.

    There is no such thing as “the perfect...

    On the ew512 systems, which are the ones I’ve been discussing in this thread, the receiver has a dedicated headphone output (separate from the AF output). The up/down arrow buttons function as...

    Then you already have receivers that can function as IEMs. Give ‘em a try. I’ve used those before and they worked perfectly... no complaints at all from producers, and they were able to wander around...

    The powering solution with the DR-60D (and the mkII) is a USB power bank. Even a 10,000mAh can power that thing for well over a full shoot day.

    But yes, the DR-10L is about the same size as a...

    Seems like something that isn’t too likely to happen. If you have a Wi-Fi-enabled camera, keep the network password-protected, and turn it off when not absolutely needed.

    Having used all three, and owning both Sennheiser ew512 systems and a Comtek system, I absolutely agree that Lectros are built like tanks.

    In practical terms, I find that IFB systems aren’t as...

    Comteks are pretty common on professional sets. They’re perfectly fine, especially if the client isn’t looking for listening quality that’s close to monitoring straight off the mixer/recorder with...

    If you’re not recording audio to camera as a primary source, then I’m honestly not sure what a sound person’s recommendation has to do with it. A G3/G4 system with 1/8” out can provide a reliable hop...

    It seems that way because it isn’t ideal for this task. The biggest thing you’re giving up is the ability to record split channels. If you only ever deal with a single mic, not that big a deal I...

    Stupid question, but any chance the mute switch on the TX got bumped? Those are quite easy to hit by accident, and even a light brush can be enough to cut signal flow.
