    How handy are you? Have you thought about DIYing a corner-fitting workbench?

    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.
