  1. Do these WD drive do the card reader file transfers via USB 3?
  2. I have the older model (ND2901)... and while I haven't used it in a bit, it worked pretty well when I did... this new one looks like it'll be a great upgrade.
  3. Just seen this so figured I'd post. There aren't a ton of options in this realm, much less ones that still accept CF Cards... https://www.nextodi.com/products/nps-10/
  4. As mentioned you can use the sub out into the mic in... but also you can pick up one of these attenuation line cables from Sescom that knock the volume down by 25db. Works perfectly. https://www.amazon.com/Sescom-LN2MIC-ZOOMH4N-3-5mm-Line-Cable/dp/B004U3S1JA
  5. @Kisaha, appreciate the perspective. For someone like myself, whose got 2 pairs of Senny G3's (all bought used over the years for under $300 a pair), but has been considering purchasing another pair for backup/3 person interviews... is there any reason to start diversifying ---- maybe pickup a pair from a newer device/different company?
  6. Would this work for you? https://www.newsshooter.com/2019/03/23/blind-spot-power-junkie-np-f-review/
  7. Just started watching Season 2 of OA on Netflix and I'm liking the layered storyline and cinematography... although ideally it feels like you have to re-watch Season 1 to really enjoy it.
  8. Honestly, the only reason I care about 8K anything is because it hopefully means cheaper 4K everything...
  9. Just picked up a Fiilex P360. About 200W output, good cri. Great reviews over the years and BH has them for like $350US right now: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1021433-REG/fiilex_flxp360_p360_90w_led_light.html
  10. Just in addition to that the unit is in very good condition and is running the latest firmware. 

    Cheers,

  11. Hello Ty,

    Sorry for the cold contact but I have recently acquired a Marantz PMD 661 recorder and noticed you use one through reading post on here.

    I have a concern with mine and wondered if you could let me know if this behaviour is normal or not.

    When powering up for the first time in a session it can sometimes take up to 20 seconds for the display to fire up. If I turn it off and then on again soon after this time is reduced to around 5 seconds. This is the same with AC or battery power (fresh batteries).

    Does this sound in line with your experiences?

    Many thanks,

    Ben

     

     

     

  12. Wanted to pick up the P360 as a hair light but wondering if the hassle of adjusting and re-adjusting the brightness, color temp, etc before hoisting it up to its position makes the DMX option worth the extra $$. Would love the opinions of anyone who does a lot of interview lighting with spot lights like this.
  13. I've shot continuous 1080 ML raw on a 5D with a 256GB Lexar card on occasion with no issues whatsoever. This was simultaneously on a 5D Mark II and III.
  14. As a Canadian, born, raised and making a living for 15+ years as a producer in Toronto (predominantly in radio but also in tv with a passion for grassroots indie film docs) I can tell you that while there might be some unique characteristic of Canada that is giving film/doc makers/crews the perception of an advantage to film/doc makers/crews south of the border, the comparison itself would likely sound laughable to many of them... especially when you think that Canada's entire population can fit in the state of California. You can also expect much much more laughter from the Canadian film/doc makers like myself, who are Black, Brown or Indigenous. It's one thing to be a Canadian film/doc maker/crew etching out a decent living telling and re-telling the standard White-Eurocentric narratives, but... .... I don't think I need to finish that sentence cuz we all know where I'm going with it.
  15. Anyone know how DPAF on the 5D MKIV compares to DPAF on the 1DX MKII?
