    Np50 chargers

    I Hi, that can't be the right charger for np-50's. Thanks, Martin

    Osa, that spray insulation foam is probably your best bet there.

    I have used the cheapy Nixxell chargers for about a year. No complaints. I think they are about 10 bucks. Also, to get ahead of charging, they will charge off my cig lighters. Thanks, Martin

    Osa, I just have a pile of the np50 wal wart style chargers. Probably not the answer your looking for though. What about the guy on here that I think made his own? Thanks, Martin

    Zaxcom Nomad timecode delay

    I have no idea what this has to do with the Nomad slate function. Re-pasting what Glenn said about the Nomad time code display has what to do with the Nomad slate function?

    Ah, I see. When would you normally use that information? I use all Zaxcom, so I personally can't think of when that would be useful, but, I am all Zaxcom, so that is not something I believe I could benefit from. Thanks.

    Constantin, Sorry, I don't have a 633 to try. What is the Sound Devices 633 doing that the Zaxcom Nomad is not doing? Thanks, Martin

    Zaxcom Nomad timecode delay

    Ok, great. Now we have clarified what you want to know about that is in the manual. As some on this site could verify, I don't have any problem getting on the phone to help someone get thru understanding how something works, everyone needs that at some point. But I don't think that is what your looking for here. I'm not sure what your doing. I will cut and paste the paragraph in the manual that deals with using the slate inside the Zaxcom Nomad. The answer of how I use it is in the paragraph attached.

    Which display are you referring to?

    Zaxcom Nomad timecode delay

    My method is the one in the manual. I'm not sure where your going with this. It's pretty simple, reading the manual is easy to follow. I don't know why you would want me, or anyone, to simply repeat what is in the manual. I can paste a link to the manual and reference the pages, if you need it.

    Per the manual. I guess I should cut and paste the manual?

    Hello, The 2 different displays shown in the picture could vary for a couple of reasons. The one reason is that the display only indicates one frame. In other words, if the difference between those 2, which is one feeding the other, could only be 1/1000 of a frame, but we can't see that because the display does not read to the 1000th, so if one is at 20:46:26:21.999 and the other is at 20:46:26:22.0 , then the difference would only be 1/1000 of a frame difference, also known as .000041 seconds. We are all not looking at the Nomad display, we are looking at a picture of the display, so now you add another element to the "problem", LCD refresh rates. What shutter speed did he use to take the picture? If you took enough pictures, you would see the frames number blurred, but that doesn't mean the time code frame is blurred, it's just a display. The easiest test for this, I believe, is to just simply test this with the slate function in the Nomad. You could also test this, with the proper camera shutter speed, by using 2 Denecke slates and look at the picture that results. I say Denecke, because I have no idea what any other manufacturer has for display indications. But I do know this test will work on a Denecke. Now, if Glenn could just build us a timecode display that read to the 1/1000 of a frame. But, that would likely create more problems, because a user could look at the 2 displays and say "Hey, my time code is off by 6/1000ths of a frame." Thank you, Martin

    Few, Thank you. So he does like these new HP's? Ok. It didn't sound that way, maybe his comment was about some other HP product comment. Thank you, Martin

    Jim, Why do you want 2 cables, one to each ear? Thank you, Martin

    Zaxcom Nomad timecode delay

    Hi Jak, I think the best way to do this test, is to use the slate that is inside the Nomad. That display would be accurate if you used it properly. If you are not familiar with it, then you could read the Nomad manual at dinner. Thank you, Martin
