igomarsound Posted April 7, 2022 Report Share Posted April 7, 2022 So it finally came. 1st impressions, it feels nice , not that big as some people said it would be. a bit heavy but the kind of heavy that makes you, as the owner, secure. it's not a big deal for the talent, I hope I wont get into divas, but im mostly on doc gigs.. it's well built with rounded corners it will make concealing a bit more easy I presume.... It is supplied with 4 antennas (lemo 1 pin) at different frequencies. the menuing is clear, the OLED screen is comfortable, much more visible and readable than the old MTP40, the navigation is pleasant and well done. I haven't had a chance to test it in the field yet but I will make further observations once my next corporate shoot is over (will have my trusty lectros around just to be sure because new stuff is always scary but i feel confident) I am right now testing the battery life with nimh IKEA LADDA rechargeable batteries. You can swap the battery time display between percentage or time remaining, for now I have tested with time remaining and am monitoring to see how accurate it is. I had a bit of trouble opening the battery compartment, but once you get the hang of it it's ok. definitely need to brief your boom op or asisstant before shooting so they can practice on it because you can loose a fair amount of time sorting this out the 1st time. wich is a good thing on the other side, talents will not be able to mess with it easily. once the battery door unlocked you can see a usb c port, and a mini sd card port. my next test will be to do a continuous recording with TC and the RF power at 100 mW to see how long it takes the nimh battery to drain, and if the audio file is safe when it shuts down du to loss of power. if you have any questions i will try to reply to them.
