    Zoom SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Microphone

    I haven't got around using my H5 that much. Been a bit intimidated with the controls. Coming from LS12 it is a lot harder to quickly delete or quickly listen to your recording. The speaker is horrible to say the least. I will use it for proper recordings when on my own and for post processing...

    Zoom SSH-6 Stereo Shotgun Microphone

    I am curious if anyone has experience with this mike as opposed to using Sennheizer ME66?

    Canon 90D with Sigma 100-400 This morning a friend popped over. It was too late in the day for good light but Itook him out for a bit as he is new to shooting birds. The camera was a Canon 90D and the lens Sigma 100-400. We took the shots from the car and did not spend much time in the field...

    repairs I'd also like to ask about the repairs to your current gear if you're happy to detail. They seem quite expensive as a proportion of purchase price - is there any indication of the root cause of the problems ? The body (7D2) has a number of problems. 1. the wheel that is on top by the...

    Thank you my friends.....I have now spent some time looking in to the options at hand. Not fully decided yet but there is no question anymore as to what is the best lens. Clearly the Sony 200-600 is the lens of choice. Very sharp, well balanced and inexpensive. The camera is more of a challenge...

    I have a 7DMarkii that is diagnosed with a faulty motherboard. The camera is well used and inspite of having serviced it at a cost of 500dollar US some time back it now needs a major overhaul to keep. I think this is not an option. It has served me well for 5 years now. I also have 100-400mm...

    XLR recorder

    It is also dead easy to set it up to record mono input from channel 1 onto both channels of a stereo file. THAT ANSWERED MY QUESTION.....TX!

    XLR recorder

    Hi I have used Olympus LS12 with ME66 for some time now. The problem with the cable is very persistent. Much like regular earphones they break very easily. Is this a problem that would go away using a recorder with XLR ability? If so, what is a recommended device? I use my gear for birds...

    considering getting a recorder, what should I buy...?

    Hi Ivel, I have an LS 12 but it is rather slow to start up. I use it with a regular Sennheizer microphone. I want a back up recorder, a simple one that I can just pull out quickly and do an immediate recording. The reason being is that I mostly go birding and have the camera with me, thus it...
