I've tightened the connection, and refilmed one section, and the problem is not there...

Also...I played with the connection and reproduced the problem. There are no other connections that could have been an issue.

Re: PinMic - warning

It's just odd that it's on both channels. That a real stumper.

Re: PinMic - warning

I find the rode micon connector system decently reliable so far... I used my pinmic with a Senn G3 for a dozen or so interviews and haven't experienced any loosening.

I learned the lesson about wearing headphones the whole time recently when I had a regular XLR cable that was intermittently failing. It was a good Neutrik connector one from B&H, not cheap stuff I never would have tracked that down without monitoring the audio constantly.

I do think I'd prefer the Rode Lapel Mic for my uses; I want to get into dramatic work which involves hiding the mic in hair etc, which the pinmic is not good for. If anyone with a Rode lapel wants to trade for my Pinmic let me know and we can work something out when I have time after mid July.
