Shure 24-bit Digital Wireless - This could be a game changer.

This just in! Shure has just popped a 24-bit digital wireless system with encryption. I haven't had a chance to play with it yet, but this will be the first real digital wireless response to Zaxcom. Check here for the details. More later.

Getting Good Sound On The Street

Rycote Pistol Grip and Softie Wind Cutter
How do you get good audio on the street? Unwanted noise can come in from anywhere; people, cars, trucks, animals, planes. 

If you don't want to stick an RE50 into the frame (which sort of freaks some people out). The Pistol Grip Suspension Mount used at a distance is a very good solution for this type of work. Yes, it's another piece of gear, but it really makes the job easy, comfortable and effective.
