Can the V-Mic D4 handle a Yamaha Grand?

Surprise to find an extension cable that doesn’t add noise to the signal path.

What if all you have is a pair of Deity Microphone V-Mic D4 Duo and you need to record and shoot some (not-so) awesome piano? I will try to figure out an answer.

Problem 1: mic may not be able to handle the high dynamic range;

Problem 2: optimal mic placement may not be the optimal camera angle;

Problem 3: the stereo mic array is very close together but not pointing at the same direction, this is a physical limitation, and I will have to figure out how;

This didn’t work.

Putting the entire rig into a piano is a bad idea, it is a horrible idea, don’t even try it!


“Coke Glasses” a sigma fp test.

Soon after the birding outing with Vincent Thian, I noticed the footage from the camera is far from satisfactory — I had to go through a whole lot of processing to barely get close to what I wanted.
No, this is NOT the camera I bought.
Upon investigation, I think I have found the culprit: recording through HDMI, even though at ProRes HQ, with the Blackmagic Design VideoAssist, is not the same as recording the footage in-camera.

I will have to do more testings.
