Weird beeping when recording to ssd - bmpcc 4k

PostThu Oct 10, 2019 9:25 am

Very odd. Heres the setup. bmpcc 4k, samsung T5 Ssd, NTG3 mic set on Phantom power - XLR, running on internal Battery. When you start recording you can here a low pitched beeping sound plus fuzzy noise (which gets recorded) So switch to CFAST card - all good. Switch to mains with SSD - all good, Switch to battery with SSD (fully charged) beeping returns. What the hell is going on here?

Edit: It's the mic, or at least mic and SSD combo. I switched the Rode NTG3 for a Sennheiser ME66 which works OK. At least I have a workaround. Good to know if anybody else can replicate this issue.

Regards Neil
