  1. Thanks Tupp! The characteristic of the interference is static noise, or it comes in the form of a "hit" which is more of a short static burst. I've done further testing today. All metabones adapters connected to canon zooms (speedbooster, speedbooster ultra, and electronic regular) with 24-105 (2 copies), 24-70, and 70-200 create distinct RF changes on the reciever, with the 70-200 being markedly better that the 24-105 and 24-70. Also tried turning off/on IS and AF to no effect. Native Sony lenses no issue. Canon 15mm no issue when connected to speedbooster. Tokina 1
  2. OK check it out. I got to the bottom of the problem but now I don't know how to solve it. After systematically taking apart the rig and checking how the receiver behaved after the removal of each individual component I finally got to the last three bits: the camera body, the metabones speedbooster, and the canon 24-105. With all three together there was the same RF behavior as before, but after the lens was removed, the RF dropped off and there was no longer an issue! I've also noticed that when the camera is powered on and the lens "engages" there is an RF spike and then it returns
  3. I have been using the Sennheiser ew g3 100 system with my a7s for nearly a year now. Generally, with the receiver not mounted on my rig I get decent results, but with it mounted on the rig I have lots of interference problems. However, I've used other Sennheiser systems with other a7s rigs flawlessly (albeit not mounted to camera) (30 interviews in 3 nights with not one RF hit). I've used this system with c300, mounted to camera, no RF hits. After a call to Sennheiser tech support we determined that my particular camera was acting as an RF antenna that was causing the afore mentioned in
  4. No, and I think therein lies my problem or that I didn't use an attenuator. I had success the previous night recording off of the board at a different venue but I think it was because I had a competent sound guy helping. Will be purchasing this attenuator later today for our more important performance tonight. http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/68600-REG/Shure_A15AS_A15AS_In_Line_Attenuator.html Thank you!
  5. Hello,I attempted to record audio of a loud musical performance tonight from the venue's sound board, and came across an issue where the levels were maxing at -24db and the audio was very distorted. The waveform looks like it's clipped, but it clips/flattens out at -24db.Would this be a case of the output level of the board being too high, and my Zoom recording the distorted audio at "acceptable levels"? The input level on my device was below 1. Thank you in advance for your help. Luckily this is not a catastrophe, but would like to know if this was an error on the part of the venue's sound
  6. What lens were you using in this test?
  7. Hi Dustin, Just drop your footage in the timeline, and then right click>scale to frame size If you want your footage to have a 40% slow motion effect (a lot of the time when shooting in 60fps this is the intention) right click on the footage in your project window and follow modify>interpret footage and then change the frame rate to 24.
  8. This lens is great for gimbal use- http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/582764-REG/Sony_SAL1635Z_SAL_1635Z_16_35mm_f_2_8_ZA.html It can take advantage of continuous AF and has a handy zoom range. I've found at least on the Movi M5 that this lens can be changed in run and gun situations from 16 to 35 without rebalancing with acceptable results as well.
  9. If anyone's interested here are some test shots with the Lomo Superscope 50mm on the a7s. I couldn't find many on the net. lomo_1243 is the password
  10. Hello, Does anyone have experience with using the Lomo anamorphic primes on the a7s? http://cptrental.com/?post_type=portfolio&p=933 What would I need in order to use them? A PL to e mount adaptor? A diopter? Sorry for for the potentially novice question! thanks!
  11. I just finished a shoot that utilized two Sennheiser ew100-G3 lav's. On both sets I performed a scan, used the bank with the most open channels, and synced the transmitter to the receiver without a problem. The transmitter was placed in the subjects pocket.example: https://vimeo.com/132673631password: sennyDespite this I still was having serious problems with this type of interference throughout the shoot. Can anyone give me some ideas to try as far as fixing this issue for future shoots? Of note: the subject was carrying a radio and his cell phone was in the same pocket at the transmitter for
  12. I bought over this past Summer... when the problem does occur I don't usually have much time to experiment because I am in the middle of shooting something so I can't say for sure if it happens in all modes or not.  Can you elaborate more on why you think I have a defective unit?   No, strangely after a few minutes the problem vanishes, but next time it comes up I will see if that is an easier fix than waiting and hoping.   It seems like the way it reacts with the movement of the camera that it could be light.  However by the same token the issue will present itself
  13. Hello,   I have been experiencing a problem every so often with my relatively new GH2 in which I will see this strange red line going across the frame.  Please see the attached image for a visual reference (in this still the line is on the upper third of the image if you are having trouble finding it).   This line moves about and varies in width and position, depending on how the camera moves.  The problem seems to occur out of nowhere, although I haven't seen it enough times to say that for certain, and seems to also go away on it's own.  It hasn't wrecked any sho
