  1. Yes I have, and thanks for the insight!
  2. @IronFilm, slightly off topic, although mentioned in this thread... I recall you saying somewhere that the 32-bit float option was a bit overrated. I was toying with the idea of upgrading from my Zoom F4 to a mixpre-6 for the slightly better analog limiters, but then I was thinking that a mixpre-6 II might be the final destination purchase for a primarily audio doc producer like myself whose needs are already well covered by a 4 xlr in recorder, but can see the value of 32-bit float in situations when you're capturing a really loud concert or a passionate discussion with multiple talking heads. Point is, if you were 90% satisfied with the F4 but willing to make one final upgrade on your primary audio recorder (though not a rush to upgrade either) --- would you upgrade to a used mixpre-6 or hold out for the mixpre-6 II? And thanks for all the audio advice you offer us all on these forums!
  3. Oh ok didn't realize they could be switched out, thx!
  4. https://www.amazon.com/Harchee-Chandelier-Acrylic-Ceiling-Adjustable/dp/B07CFX2MFS Saw one at a friends apartment the other day and really loved the way it lit the people sitting at their table, which was also round... and seemed to be the perfect light for a roundtable series I've always wanted to produce. But the one at the link has no light/color quality specs --- so wondering if anyone has experience using this one or variations of this type of fixture that they could recommend? Also, all the eps for this series would be shot at one person's house, so the fixture would likely permanently replace the current light hanging over their dining table.
  5. Thx, and not freaking out at all, just wanted to be sure there weren't any known issues with battery discharge... thx again tho!
  6. @IronFilm or anyone else on this thread have any idea what (if any) type of battery drain the Zoom F4 has while not in use? Was thinking of leaving my Eneloops in the machine for the time being, but worried I might come back in a month or two to use it and find that they've lost a lot of juice. Not really a big deal if I can't, just wondering if anyone knows the answer... thx in advance!
  7. I think we can definitely agree that every response in this thread speaks volumes to the type of values we each hold. And for the record, I think his art is interesting --- I just don't think it's even remotely interesting enough to justify his approach. I'm sure there are other ways he can make/push the boundaries of his art without getting in people's faces.
  8. Yes I do, I just have no time for artists/people who only want to engage in complexity and care and creativity when it revolves around the pursuit of the art in and of itself, but dismiss those same things when it comes to respecting their subject(s). Again, a great artist, imho, is one who can find a way to achieve both things.
  9. He's totally free to push the limits of people's personal boundaries within public spaces for the sake of his art. By the same token he better be totally ok with the potential repercussions of his actions. Matter of fact, I'm sure he instinctively picks his subjects/victims based on how much of an immediate threat they might pose to him, which speaks to the predatory nature of his behavior... and that's regardless of whether his end goal is art, creepy kicks, or both. But to me the scarier people are those who can't just acknowledge that all these things are equally legitimate factors worth acknowledging when deciding whether what he is doing is actually worth it, for the sake of art... or whether there might actually be a way for him to do his art, while respecting the boundaries of his subjects (what, too hard of a proposition to wrap his boundary-pushing artist head around?). Personally I have way more respect for the artist that cares about that part as much as they do their precious art.
  10. +1 for tungsten, unless you book alot of time sensitive gigs that require you to pack up and leave fairly quickly, which is something that can be easily forgotten/overlooked if you're not used to working with fixtures that need time to cool down after they've been used.
  11. I actually know nothing about any of that stuff, which is why I was asking...
  12. Looks like it only allows SSD's up to 1TB in size (or maybe I'm misunderstanding the specs) while the Nexto allows for 4TB SSDs and technically can take drives up to 32TB in size, which seems like a much better long term investment.
  13. Wouldn't you need a pretty sick data plan for wireless backup to make economic sense?
  14. In case people haven't seen Nexto's latest backup solution. Comes in a few different configurations including one that includes a CF slot: https://www.nextodi.com/products/nps-10/ Anyone own/use one yet?
  15. @Ed_David, I seem to remember you being someone who had issues with the Astras (apologies in advance if I'm wrong). Have you tried this program yet?
