Hello everyone,

 

I'm wondering if a Moviecam SL is quiet enough to shoot sync sound? I keep finding different specs online, some stating that its SYNC, some MOS. 

 

Would love to hear your experiences in that regard.

 

Thanks!

It's certainly audible in a dead quiet room, though not loud. I think it was designed mainly for handheld and Steadicam use outdoors. You can probably use a barney to get it around 20dB if necessary.

It is more like maybe an SR2, which is sync sound, but not quiet enough in a small, dead quiet room. Much like an SR2, if you're in a super quiet room, and are 2-3ft or super close to the subject, noise will probably be an issue.

for example 21 Grams was shot with the SL. I don't know how much of it was adr:d though.

 

Aaton 35 was also used for sync sound in some films so it should certainly be possible
