Equipment List, All Gear

Nick of Mister Photon Media adds new audio gear & camera support
for location sound on a frequent basis (720) 299-2084 

I’m adding new sound gear, grip and camera support on every opportunity that I can. Hiring my business is reliable and more versatile than your typical freelance sound recordist in that my additional experience, as well, ownership of gear past audio gear can help any incoming shooter/camera person, crew, network, producer or production company with additional gear, as well the expertise.

More lighting & grip equipment as well helps..

it seems aside from my large inventory of audio gear I’m frequently adding more camera support gear that crews typically can’t fly in from other states, and I offer this gear at reasonable rental rates. Typical camera support gear I add to the truck are flags, apple boxes, 4×4’s, silks, frames, flags, C-Stands, lighting equipment or other camera support or other odds and ends always help everyone out. If you’re traveling into Colorado by plane or other means that does not allow the gear you would like to bring, I have additional equipment like tripods, lighting, monitors, cables, lighting and grip gear to ease the baggage fees that airlines charge for impractical cargo that you can’t manage when coming into Colorado. Call me as your local sound guy with extra camera support gear, as well the experience, so yon can catch your return flight, bring less, and rely on a local resources for your production sound mixer.

Professional Sound Mixers & Recorders for Video, Television or Film

  • Sound Devices 552 ENG/EFP audio mixer & recorder with 2 channel recording.
  • Sound Devices 664 Mixer Recorder with 6 dedicated solo XLR inputs, with other inputs as well. This can record up to 16 tracks, but 6 are assigned XLR dedicated the other connections are non XLR connections.
  • Tascam HS-P82 Mixer Recorder – Having 8 dedicated split inputs, this is a very high end digital audio recorder / mixer for ENG, EFP, film or video production. This mixer recorder has 8 inputs, 2 outputs and digital audio recording, filtering and mixing up to 10 tracks along with time code embedded from a device or to slave several devices like several different cameras or other I/O recorders. Read more below about this mixer / recorder. This mixer has advantages of the Sound Devices 552 and 664 mixer/recorders and is comparable in features with a Zaxcomm Diva 8 or a Sound Devices 788T mixer/recorder because of the separate XLR inputs that do not require routing or adapted cables. For any audio mixing and recording requiring more than 2 tracks or with time code, this is the machine I use to fulfill the responsibilities or more demanding location sound. It also has adjustable low cut roll off, phase assignments, sample rates to 196k, among other useful features.
