  1. I'm under the impression that there's a phone app coming that could start/stop recording over bluetooth. Of course, that's only good if it does actually start/stop in the first place.
  2. I've done exactly that with the VideoMic NTG, and NTG4+ with XLR-3.5mm cable. It works very well for a wireless boom setup. I also regularly use my Wireless Go with a Zoom recorder. Have the mics going into the recorder, then plug the Wireless Go into the output and send the audio to the camera. Perfect for monitoring from the camera, and syncing the HQ audio later, but also gives the option for super mega fast turn around where necessary. Providing you get the levels in the zoom correct before sending the signal to the camera, of course.
  3. It will probably be in the same update that brings gen5 colour to the other pockets.
  4. I use this, you can order which ever direction you want the 90degree end to be. I'm happy with it. https://www.amazon.de/dp/B076YB79DL/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_apip_WwFqPMlmPMo1W
  5. Doesn't the Tentacle Sync Track E already do that? The only difference is there's no receiver (while recording). In fact, it's on SD cards, has a locking connector and timecode for syncing later. Regarding this Rode though, I read the internal recording is 24bit, with a -20db pad, then converted to 32bit float in post (still not clear on the benefit). I think you'd only really clip that if you're shooting a Michael Bay movie.
  6. I think they're also working on a Android/iOS app, which might help with the recording part. Start/Stop would be fantastic. If you're leaving it running all day, maybe use the compressed version for 24 hours of recorded audio? Or if you only need one of the mics, switch them after 6ish hours? But records uncompressed. Honestly, I don't even know what that means, but I imagine there's enough headroom. Will have to wait for real world tests.
  7. That's basically the only thing missing now. Although, I've been looping the lav cable under the clip and also using some tape to keep it in place. It's not exactly pretty, but gets the job done. The thing isn't in the shot anyway, so it's fine. Of course, it depends on your use though.
  8. It seems very snazzy to be honest. All these points are in the video below, but here's what I like and don't like: It records on a loop, so if you don't backup the recordings, they get written over once you run out of internal memory. If you record uncompressed internal, you can then get a 32-bit float file off the transmitter. No need for -20db safety track If you record in Sum to Mono mode, the internal recording has a -20db safety track If you experience any audio dropouts to the receiver, the internal recordings will have a marker at those points. You can ad
  9. Surprised there's not chatter about this here. Anyone know how it gets around those transmission and recording patents? https://www.rode.com/microphones/wireless/wirelessgoii I also can't find exact details on recorded audio formats etc.
  10. How would you ever stabilise in post without crop? This basically has the SteadXP built in. Something all camera's could do with, and Blackmagic previously suggested would come for their cameras, but so far never has. Maybe now it'll start to become a standard.
  11. Isn't anyone interested in the gyro Metadata to help stabilize in post with Catalyst? That's an amazing feature.
  12. The first part is true. And the second part can be. But I've shot plenty of interviews, and a camera op and journist, 1 man job at f2.8 and sometime wider on 35mm sensor. It's absolutely fine. The key is to get the subject on a chair that doesn't swivel or have wheel etc. Like you say, what applies to one, doesn't apply to all.
  13. I think that would be seen as a backwards step. I would also imagine if that was planned, they would have unveiled them both at the same time. Where would it even sit pricewise?
