  1. 2x things i am excited to use these for 1) a quick zaxcom specific uhf scanner for avail freqs when scouting multiple locations and 2) when on an occasional job by myself on a cart i can self wirelessboom occasionally to grab sfx or pickups with total confidence monitoring a-straight from boom trx or b-from cart setup with automix lavs in left and boom in right which is something i felt i was always missing on these "let me grab this real quick" setups that happen from time to time with specific clients. I cant wait to hear all the other creative ways these can be utilized as time passes. So many possibilities

    Dpa microdot repair

    For me personally the flexibility of microdot outweighs the somewhat delicate nature. I really like the ability to switch between xlr zax n lectro with the same mic at any time just by swapping adapters with minimal bulk. I try to handle delicately but i knew it couldnt last forever. Just glad to know they can be repaired. Will report back if any issues i figured best to go to the source

    Dpa microdot repair

    cool thank you all for the feedback. sending to dpa seems the way to go!
  4. First experience of a short in a dpa factory microdot connector. Definitely Curious what others do - i would prefer to stay microdot if possible. Sorry dont recall this being discussed n didnt find in search if i missed it i apologize - do dpa or dealers offer microdot re-termination? 2nd thought was commit to lemo. I am done doing these myself so either way i would send it off -Ken
  5. According to the video your cable from 1/8th jack feeding camera becomes the 2nd antenna. But i bet you can make a matching whip with 1/8 jack instead of bnc or sna to mimic when ta5f is used
  6. Indeed i have one on order and i am not entirely sure what i will use it for until i get my hands on it. Could be using multiples today on a job. So much potential for so many uses
  7. Does return loop back only apply to return A? Trying to fuss with it on set right now and no luck from return B… the manual seems to use A as an example but is not clear that that's the only way for proper function as far as I can tell -Ken
  8. This is assuming your fs7's have the "pro" back not sure what it is called but supplies tc io and battery. There is no pass thru only one port with switch in and out. Use a bnc T adapter to split your tc out to ea cam set to tc in and you are good to go. Worse case no back i manually punch in tc all the time with these cams and it holds well if they stay out of high speed. Tc stays accurate within a few frames to at least keep your recorded audio close
  9. I agree i also use these units side by side. I did a number of tests early on with mine both tuned to 2x trx's. in dual mode on a qrx 200 i get more consistent reception with just whips whereas on a qrx100 i found to employ micplexer and dipoles yielded similar results in my experience. In single mode i noticed equal reception in both units. If you have the ability even just dipoles on the qrx100 would go a long way. But this being said, might not be neccessary depending on your environments. I use my qrx100 all the time to this day along side 200's and would never sell it so i say go for it if its a great deal it is still a worthy investment

    Zelle

    Great feedback thank you. It's with a fellow mixer in my region whom I have known for a while so I trust him. But he is younger so I was wanting to make sure this wasn't a fly-by-night service that he just discovered

    Someone asked me recently if i would use zelle as payment for gear i am selling. Paypal is all i know. Anyone here for or against this service?

    nova!

    With the nova and built in zaxnet - correct me if i am wrong - but couldn't a stereo trx replace the need for camera link trx? Not sure what details i am missing but i just tested with my sound devices/mixplexer2/qrx setup to a rx200 and all seemed to work without interference. I am jazzed at no need to bds power anything if this works as the new way forward.

    nova!

    Will the nova or maybe zaxcom recorders in general give the option for split mono bwf and poly file bwf recording? I have a mix of clients where some prefer split mono to grab a single iso track when needed and some want poly for high count track management

    nova!

    I realize photos of the nova available now may not truly represent final product but coming from sound devices i am not used to anennas coming out of the face of a mixer. Am i the only one seeing it as odd that to put your thumb n pointer finger on the volume knob as shown in pic below would be tough with an antenna or even worse right angle lowloss antenna cable connected? Has anyone else been able to put their hands on a demo and see if this is even an issue?
  15. Maybe someone xan snap a better photo when your at the camera - This shows where it is located, accepts standard straight 5 pin xlr. Also shown is with wooden camera adapter

    nova!

    Glenn in the Gotham video mentioned the option of using sd card adapters in the cf slots - is this something nomad users do as well or is it recommended to stick with approved cf cards

    nova!

    Aes ins and outs is something i haven't engaged with personally until i get this nova. Am i understanding correctly that the aes i/o port on the side is in addition to the qrx212 slots for the 12 ch record capabilities and not an either/or input type thing? i watched the gotham vid with Glenn as well as read the literature available and neither seemed to clearly state this for sure. I.e. i was looking to add 2x qrx200's digitally along with the qrx212's to have 8 trx's total if this is all possible

    nova!

    I am in line to find this out. Just completed my order for a nova and 2x 212's. Now the wait begins... this thing crosses of a lot on my list when it comes to my particular workflow. Hoping this all in one unit really does the job indeed time will tell. I should be able to give some input on these exact scenarios above - qrx whips vs mic plexer vs dipoles vs nova whips vs nova dipoles in real world comparisons

    nova!

    Can anyone comment on if the qrx212 modules will support xr-mono trx's with this unit?
  20. I sleep my zmt's all the time and def do see extended battery life but not quite as much as i recall with la2's. Not sure what fw i am on but i dont believe the latest. Just received a unit from zax repair. Will check fw vers and sleep abilities assuming they updated fw
  21. I wonder if this is refering to the position of it? Its down under the camera at a weird angle but works well nonetheless.
  22. I had great success ea time i have worked with it but only single camera - i know this may have been checked but any chance you working in 29.97 and 1x is set to drop frame? That always causes me to revert to internal if op has presets that set to drop frame as default

    nova!

    I personally am a creature of habit and have been all zaxcom wireless but sound devices recorders - this is the first recorder that fits everything for the work i do where i can see i will make the switch. If i see correctly it will xmit audio and tc over zaxnet for erx's but a camera link trx would still be needed for stereo digital and tc for rx200's?
