I have the MixPre 3 and Im looking for the most compact/cost effective way to power the unit. I know that there are at least a dozen ways to power the MixPre 3 from battery sleds to Hawkwoods HiRose/L Mount adapters Im trying to decide which would work best in my case. Does anyone have any experience with any of the solutions below, Im currently using a Samsung S8 phone charger connected to the MixPre 3. I'm a YouTuber mainly so Im not mobile but it would be great not to limit myself and be able to change position of the tripod occasionally or even go mobile if needed. I've listed the top solutions for my workflow which would choose in my situation if you have other options feel free to mention them. 4 AA Lithium Ion batteries for my current 4AA battery sled 30$/ $30 for AA battery charger (Runtime could be an issue) (Compact) MX-8AA - $65 + $40 8 Lithium Ion Battery + $40 AA battery charger (Runtime 4 hours unsure) (Compact solution) Hawkwoods L Mount $145 + $80 battery + Battery charger $60 (Doesn't look like it'll fit under camera lens if mounted together) Anker PowerCore+ 20100 USB-C $65.99 (Difficult to mount on a tripod) (Cheap, good for mobile roaming) Anker Quick Charge 3.0 $12 (Needed to charge PowerCore+) (Great for stationary shooting)
I recently purchased a MixPre 3 and was hoping to use my RODE SmartLav+ and RODE SmartLav and was pretty surprised when they both didn't work. I just want to make sure before I sell one of my SmartLavs that they indeed will not work with my MixPre 3. I also have a TASCAM DR60D that I used the lavs with successfully so I dont understand why the Smartlavs wont work with the MixPre 3. I've been trying with the adapter since the mics are TRRS, can anyone tell me why the SmartLavs wont work with the MixPre 3 thanks.
