My first thought was that this must be a lesser model. I recall that there were two models a couple hundred dollars apart and I bought the higher priced model – but this is it – the 660!
I bought mine from b&h about four months ago. Didn’t get the two mics or case that are advertised here. Jean just checked that order and the recorder was $500 but the 2G flash card was $109 and the XLR cables and adapters were another hundred dollars, totalling $700.
At any rate, the recorder works great, but the controls are placed to invite catastrophe. For instance, when you hook it up to a soundboard to shoot an event or wedding, the sound operator or DJ may have to move it a little to one side or another. But in the dark, if you just grab the recorder to move it, you’re likely to hit the Stop button and end recording.
We have experienced problems like that about 1/3rd of the time.
Yeah, I just checked and SanDisk makes a 4GB CF card for about $105, which is a big wow.
Looks like that might be it . . . thanks!
