IronFilm Posted October 27, 2021 Share Posted October 27, 2021 The sheer irony that literally in the opening seconds that video starts off with bad audio! No wireless on the planet, not even one you spend thousands and thousands of dollars on, is going to be as robustly good as a quality XLR cable for twenty bucks or so. But practically speaking, we can't on a modern film set use hardwired mics. As priority is camera 1st, not sound! 🤣 (imagine if camera dept got told we can't use your internal camera recordings... only what's recorded wirelessly to the 1st AC's monitor remotely!) Thus everything on set is wireless, and why I've got dozens of channels of Lectrosonics. If lockdown hadn't happened, and all the other mess going on, then I was earlier this year very seriously considering investing in a few channels of Shure Axient Digital: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/1404861-REG/shure_adx1m_g57_adx1_diversity_showlink_enabled_micro.html https://www.trewaudio.com/product/shure-axient-digital-adx5d/ https://www.gothamsound.com/product/ad3-plug-transmitter But with what the future is looking like now with all that uncertainty, I'm putting off those plans, am glad I did that. Another local mixer friend of mine is in the same boat, he'd even already placed in his order. But cancelled it once they arrived, because we're in lockdown now. A damn pity though, as Shure Axient Digital is the closest you can get to perfect wireless like a hardline XLR cable! Juank 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
