Wireless mounting on PD150

I have an Audio Technica wireless system. The model of the receiver is ATW-R100. It is quite large so I'm not sure how it can be attached to the Sony PD150. With the added weight of two more 9v batteries, it is certainly more heavy to be on the PD150.
Any advice is appreciated,
Lucas

I have used that for a couple of months until I switched to AKG PR81. Yes it is endeed to big and heavy. I used to put it at the back of the battery (NPF-960) using a verlcro.

How do you attach the AKG PR81 to the PD150? By velcro also?
Thanks,
Lucas

I"ve always hung the receiver of my Sennheiser outfit on the sling that support the right hand. Stays out of the way and with the Sennheiser belt clip, never has come close to falling off.

I use the Mighty Wondercam, mini rover with the accessory plate (mini mate) http://www.videosmith.com/

Here's a new idea http://www.bracket1.com/

Interesting, Brian.

Looks like it would move the center of gravity for the setup off to the right. Fortunately, towards the right hand. Wonder how that feels after 10 minutes. Any insight?

The only incite I can give is on the Mini Rover. The grip and the mic mount is towards the back of the camera. The left arm and elbow will be tucked in to the left side of your body and the right arm likewise as your hand is in the support strap.

That's one heck of a rigid support. Your camera and your upper body become one. I'm older than dirt and I can hold the camera with all my goodies shake free. It also gives you something to hang on to besides the top handle. The ergonomics are such that you don't get tired and the grip is easy on your hand. Cheap, hard plastic grips just don't cut it.

The Mighty Wondercam is around $60 and the mini mate is around $10. The support is lightweight and milled from aluminum and the grip is cushioned and non slip. This is important when you have a few thousand hanging off of it. This ranks with the better things i've bought.

I mount my shotgun on the rover as well and mount my quick connect plate to the bottom of the river. The whole schmiel goes on the tripod, monopod and the marzpac

PD150 Mic Mod.. (Radio Shack)

Hey guys,

** EXTENDING YOUR STOCK PD-150 MIC **
Question and its pretty urgent, I was wondering if any of you had used the stock microphone that comes with the PD-150 and just got a extension XLR cord about 16' long, and used it to hook up with the PD150 XlR inputs! I basically:

XLR INPUT = | (RADIO SHACK ADAPTER *XLR-1/4" PHONE PLUG IN)-PHONE PLUG IN -| XLR INPUT TO SONY MIC?

SADLY MY ATTEMPT FAILED AND THEIR WAS NO SIGNLA RUNNING THROUGH IT.. ANYONE HAVE ANY THEORYS?

I do it all the time. I have a normal XLR cable that I connect between the camera and the microphone which I place on a stand. It works very well.

Why do you go through the 1/4" plug/socket?

PD150 Audio Dropouts

We're having little micro drop outs in audio on our PD150. It's only occasional, not on every tape, and sometimes it seems if we change tapes it won't come back. This happens in all recording situations and with different mics.

Any idea what's going on?

Thanks,

Arne

sounds more like a tape issue than anything else.

Presumably you've cleaned the heads?

Sometimes the loss of audio is an indication that the heads are dirty or close to end of life.
