  1. I purchased 2 x 4400mh li-ion batteries today. My recordings I doubt will be over one hour, so these will hopefully do the biz. Thanks for your advice.
  2. Thanks Michael. That is reassuring. Guess I need a couple of 'L' batteries to save a 'lot' of money!
  3. 4 x Duracell Plus running a stereo mic with 48v phantom power and just the 2 channels live. No headphones plugged in. I get just over 2 hours of recording before the battery power goes so low it cause problems. But it is claimed of up to 16.5 hours operation by some. Or is that only with 'L' batteries?
  4. I did a lot of searching and reading after the posts here and purchased an F6 and the BP 4025 to get me started. I have some things to sell to recover costs. Thanks all.
  5. In fact today we did a short experiment with the x/y and shotgun mic on my H5. The gain has to be down to 4 and below so that the 'hiss' cannot be heard. On playback it is still there and this was just a door opening and closing test. The F6 sounds good. I did see the odd complaint against the MixPre but I cant remember whether it was the 3 or 6. The Sony is 10 years old. That kind of puts me off a little plus it does not have phantom power.
  6. I have been taking all advice and recommendations. I am going to record what is applicable in mono (non wildlife) with what I have. Then when I get chance I will invest in the stereo mic and most probably the F6. Maybe a bargain will come along? Thank you all for taking the time and the recommendations and advice was much appreciated.
  7. At first Michael I thought Jez had done a typo and it was the Audio-Technica 8022. This is also a stereo mic and possibly quite similar? But it turns out you and Jez are correct although the 822 is now discontinued. All info is investigated and noted so many thanks. I read up on the Zoom F6 over the Mix-Pre for different reasons. One is I have always been impressed with my H5 except for the battery life. Are the pre-amps in the H5 not as good as in the F6, or would the H5 still be suitable for quality recordings?
  8. Thanks Jez. Just by the products you suggest I can see how they may be used. I have been watching Youtube vids also. The set-ups are varied as you describe and to fit each situation. Very different than a sound booth, studio mics via an Audient interface which is what I am used to. There, I just flick a few switches and I am up and running. I have ideas of recordings to make. Not all will be wildlife. I would love to build a stock library and get me outdoors, hence the questions.
  9. I agree and I am doing, but really just need pointers and the why's and why nots more than an exact item.
  10. That is a lot of money just for the microphone alone Constantin. Would another NGT2 and blimp on a stereo bar work with the exact same I have now? So the two mics in blimps in x/y position? Or are these mics of inferior quality for this type of recording and you need to step it up a little? I live by the sea and a slip on fur is basically useless regards wind.
  11. Thanks Rick. It is for nature mainly I wanted to record, to start with anyway. Is the 32 bit important or just the latest or both?
  12. Hi All. I have some studio recording equipment which is all mono and plugged into my pc via an interface. I also have a Zoom H5 and a Rode NGT2 which I purchased for video work. I want to branch out and try field recording. Anything and all outside in the sunlight and fresh air. But I have never recorded in stereo before and know nothing of the equipment. My recording knowledge is pretty basic anyway, so could someone please suggest a stereo type of mic which may fit inside my Rode Blimp, and a good recorder if my H5 is not up to quality recordings? Thanks.
