Very happy with my new Cantar x3 of course!
Though at moment the talkback system only seems to be one-way, from the soundmixer to the boom operator/or any other line-out.
I'm missing a bit a internal talkback system which can be used both directions and activated at both ends of the line.
My previous recorder (sonosax sx62) had a boomoperator connection with a dedicated headphone output, talkbackmic and talkbackmic-activation for a button on the boomoperator belt-box (boombox). This was a perfect line which could be private or being recorded.
For now the solution to have the same communication options seems to me to have a talkback system almost fully separated from the cantar. Though I really like to have it intergraded to keep my filmcart as simple as possible. A second headphone output can now only be created via 2 line outputs of the SubD connector and adding a pre-amp to it, thats fine.
But, if possible, a talkbackmic with also activation on the boomoperator-side would be great for an update!
There could be a activation on the option-connector which opens talkback 1 and a XLR input at the same time. The talkback 1 button should be able to do the same of course. Maybe there could even be a dedicated headphone-output on the option-connector.
How do other cantar users work around this issue?
