New light weight run n gun kit

21 11 2011

So I built up a sweet little run and gun kit for those long days with boom and a couple of wireless.

So I’ve got a Sound Devices 302 mixer to two wireless transmitters for camera hop, also running to a tascam dr40 recorder for backup(or simple dslr gigs). For my wireless its a Lectrosonics SRa dual channel receiver with SMV transmitters coupled with a selection of Sanken, Countyman or Tram lavaliere mics. And of course my Sennheiser mkh60 shotgun with a K-tek 152cc 12′ boom pole. All powered by one NP-1 style battery, which on the 12 hour day I worked on Saturday for the Golf Channel, only used 25% of the battery. My next upgrade will be adding one of Cable Techniques emergency Rx devices to add a 4th channel into the 302. Oh yeah, and its super light! My shoulders felt nothing at the end of the day, can’t say the same for my feet tho..
