Usually, I'm never on shoots that record into camera, but I have a job this weekend where I have to. I'm still using my Sound Devices recorder as a pre-amp/mixer.
The camera I'm plugging into is the Panasonic AJ-HPX3700G P2.
I want to double check some things with you guys, as I don't want to be fiddling too much on the day.
It would be nice not to have cables going from my recorder to the camera, so I'm thinking of using two of my Senneheiser G3 wireless systems to go from line-out to the camera. Is this safe? I won't be able to monitor the final output, and I'm worried I'm having interference or something and don't notice it.
If it is okay to use the wireless systems, what levels should I have them set at? My usual settings for dialogue are around -21db or -24db for the transmitter and -6db for the receiver. Would I leave it as that? Then feed it a test tone from my SD and match on the camera?
If I veto the wireless route and go with cables, I go line-out from my Sound Devices, and set the test tone to -20db, on the camera I match the levels to -20 (little less for safety) as well, and should be fine?
Thanks for any help/warnings.
