The new Zaxcom 200 Series Digital Wireless products promise one major advancement over previous models: distance! Their website recently released a video showcasing the TRXLA2 transmitter broadcasting clear across the Hudson River from New York City to a QRX235 receiver in Hoboken, New Jersey. As a recent transplant from NYC, I can attest that despite the direct line of sight, that is one helluva distance! Glenn Sanders and Jack Norflus claim that the new systems can operate at four times the range of their predecessors.

Review: The Sennheiser MKE-600 Short Shotgun Microphone

New microphones for film and video production come around as slowly as wrap on an 12-page day, but just last year it happened again.

The Sennheiser name gives the MKE-600 plenty of street-cred, and from my listening evaluation and field test, I believe this German-made mic delivers on the brand’s legacy, particularly for the intended professional market often referred to as “ENG” (Electronic News Gathering) or “Journalism”. While the MKE-600 is priced for the growing market of small hand-held video production, the audio performance of this electret condenser far exceeds what the low price suggests, and will likely find a place in the mic kits of many accomplished sound mixers.

Tascam DR-60D: Problem Solved

As mentioned a couple of months ago in an August 21 article posted in Trew Audio Flow (see the article here), we discovered a problem having to do with noise being induced into the Canon 5D-MkII camera when – and only when – attached to the DR-60D. The amount of testing that could be done was limited by Tascam not being able to deliver more DR-60Ds at the time (they were between production runs). However, other customers responded to the report, saying they had the same problem with their DR-60D and 5D-MkII setup. So it may well be a consistent problem with earlier DR-60D recorders.
