So this was a groupfoto for the guitarmic shootout. We ended up using 3 mics per speaker at the same time. Big winners were KM140 and RE-20. Big loser was the SM57 wich we even, after moving it around because of it's bad sound, replaced and still sounded terrible compared to the others. Even the old Grundig my colleague got from a friend sounded way nicer!

This is in the BIMHUIS studio.

I'm thinking of building another 96 channel four way (or five way) splitter system, because there never seems to be enough inputs on some dates.

i heard some scary stories about that gig. its too bad this sort of stuff happens on an a list event. the press had nothing to say about it.

Yes, really expert-looking photos. Would you mind telling us what camera you used, please? I am looking for the smallest camera that will enable that quality of shot in low light situations - I am hoping it would be possible with the Sony RX-100, but have just bought a Pentax K-01 for this purpose. I find it a little chunky and wonder if I should have gotten an RX-100.

Thanks guys!

The wembley pic's where shot hand held from the edge off the stage with a Canon 5Dmk3 and the macro 100mmL lens slightly stopped down. The IS (image stabilization) of the 100L is nice and helps in low light.

The new 6D is priced lower and has even better low light performance than the mk3, still not coffe money though.

Here's a picture of an orchestra concert I recorded on the 13th. It's the string program at a private K-12 school. She starts the concert with all of her students on stage (150+) for the 1st two numbers, then she has the individual ensembles/string quartets play. Very talented group of musicians.

Love the wideangle Mats. What lens is that? I played with a friend's 10-20 a few weeks ago. Gotta get one of those. Miss my Sigma 15-30 from my Nikon days.

From last weekend session.

Recorded vocals thru a toy radio. Had to take care of the spill somehow. The singer is (sometimes) totally out there so he loved the idea.

Hi,

Thx! It's actually a panorama image made of four RAW shots at 17mm (27mm with crop) using my Tamron 17-50mm 2.8 lens @ 2.8 on the Canon EOS 550D body. I used Panoramatools to stitch them together.

My wife does photography for money so there's an excuse for gearslutting in da' house.

My own camera that she doesn't use is a 5d2. The stuff I grab (my favorite lenses) are the 135 f/2.0L, the 45mm f2.8 TS-E and the 17-40L. For airshows I have a 200mm f/2.8 prime with the 1.4 extender. I like "dumb" flashes, my most often used flash is a Yongnuo (sp?) 560 Mk 1.

I honestly forgot what the model of powershot is I carry around these days, I think the HS-300? I haven't been happy with the Canon powershots ever after my beloved SD450 broke. Hated the SD890 but selling it and getting whatever I have now didn't help much. I might have to go look elsewhere than Canon for a change. I just wish somebody would combine Android with some serious optics.

Hey Jaden,

For me it's about focusing on the capture and doing a great job with what I'm hired to do in the first place.

Grabbing my camera phone and/or my pocket camera to snap a few shots while I have a moment is what the reality is for me.

Show us your professionally photographed photos.
I'd love to see what you're talking about and how you handle your images.

Here's a few interior shots of Elroy and around the field shop during the Focusrite RedNet Technology Demo we did at my field shop a couple of weeks ago.

FYI, no professional photographer was harmed in the capture of these images.

Oh man, Steve, your Rednet get-together looks like a fun hang. I wish I knew about it! Care to describe what you set up for the event?

A few questions --
-Do you have Rednet in your inventory? Were you demonstrating the system to others or exploring it for your own fact-finding?
-The ability to share I/O with popular Yamaha consoles and stageboxes on Dante seems like the obvious big advantage for Rednet in the live recording arena. But (correct me if I'm wrong) Rednet does away with Dante's provision for redundant network connections, which seems like a big disadvantage for live recording. Any thoughts? I know redundancy is not taken lightly in your shop.

Thanks!

Yes, our RedNet get-together was indeed a fun hang.

I plan to start a thread about it on this forum.
It should have been up by now, but I've been busy on a few projects and could not get to it as of yet.
I hope to get to it very soon.

We don't have any RedNet systems in our inventory, but based on the demonstration we did confidence is high that we will have at least 128 channels of the stuff.

We were demonstrating the system for ourselves and others.

The ability for it to share with other Dante devices (JoeCo, and such) is a big advantage for RedNet, but you're right, provisions for redundant network connections are not available at this time.

John Klett, Fran Manzella, Phil Wagner Ted White, Brandon Carroll and I had a dinner meeting after the first day's demo to discuss that specific concern and a few other thoughts and ideas we had for the future development of the RedNet product line.

Needless to say, we had a very productive conversation!

I will get into much more detail in that thread.

re: Photos onsite

Sorry I'm a bit late with this… but I just returned from a week in eastern Europe on a church thing and very little internet connectivity.

Re: Cameras and live production shots… as I do (and have since 1969) location photos for money as a primary business source, my kit is a hard-working one. Current first-grab is a Nikon D800 with a 24-120 f:4.0 which is rarely unmounted. Backup and long-lens body is a second D800 with a Nikkor 70-200 f:2.8. I carry a rather ancient (late '70s) 18mm f:3.5 AI rectilinear ultra-wide, a 50mm f:1.8 AF from the early 90s, and, when necessary, a Micro Nikkor 105 2.8 AF. The wonderful Nikkor Q 50mm f:1.4 I got on my first Nikkormat in 1968 occasionally makes an appearance when its ultra-shallow DOF and great bokeh are required. That 45-year-old lens does just fine on the 10-month-old D800...

The D800s both double as video acquisition bodies, behind a pair of Sony Z1s. Two AtomOS Samurai recorders on the Z1s and a Ninja2 on one D800 capture everything to SSD or HDD in ProRes 422/HQ, with the second D800 usually in "run-and-gun" mode, with a wide lens, capturing H.264 to the internal SDHC card. Manfrotto tripods and small fluid-like heads suffice for support.

As to onsite photos… I concur with His Most Exalted Remoteness that I'll do exactly what there is time to do within the schedule of the audio recording job. If there's time and if there was schlepping bandwidth to roll in the 45-pound LowePro, I'll happily shoot reference/archive shots with a D800. Otherwise, it's the iPhone… which, when employed with sufficient care, is a surprisingly competent capture device.

Mileage may vary… but these tools work exceedingly well for me, on a daily basis.

HB

Here's a sample from Moldova last week: light was the iPhone, weak diffuse daylight from the window, and (4) bare 100w lamps high on the walls of this orphanage's gym. D800w/24-120, ISO6400, 1/[email protected]:4.0, Auto WB.

I'm really digging the Lawo mc2 66 desk that's parked in Elroy for training and evaluation.

IMHO, Lawo is the digital desk with an analog mindset.

There's a button and encoder for everything (I'd ever need.)
