  1. The Simple Reason Why Equinox Is Special

    What you say about being a contrarian makes perfect sense, Steve. Only one problem. EVERYONE is buying an Equinox! You're not going to be a contrarian for long.
  2. VERY interesting tests. I hope you continue to do more. I didn't see that you stated explicitly, so I'll ask: Was the direction of coil sweep always parallel to the 2x4s during these tests? And always with the coil centered over the coin? If you tried sweeping at various angles, the results would also be interesting. I guess 45 and 90 degrees are the obvious other angles to try. I'd also be interested if you tried the Impact on more than the one test you mentioned for it. I'd also like to know what mode you used on the Impact, and what the other settings were. One minor suggestion: Your previous tests showed a ruler so we could judge distances. That was a great idea! I'd like to see it for these tests, too. I'm sure other people will suggest a dozen (or a thousand) other things you should do, either instead of what you did or in addition to it. That's the nature of research, I think. You run some measurements, gather some results, and answer some questions. But each of those answers cause you to think of a bunch of new questions to answer, too. That's why research never ends. Thanks for your work on this. Great stuff! --Tom
  3. The manual was updated again on Feb. 12. Download it again to make sure you have the most recent version. I'm trying to verify if another change is needed. See the post I just made 5 minutes ago on the Dankowski forum if you want to see the details. It involves the number of lines displayed when you use the Notch feature as shown in the example in the second paragraph of page 17. The manual says 4, but I think it's 3. I'd be happy for any Kruzer testers to try the example and let me know.
  4. I can only take a tiny bit of credit for the Nokta/Makro manuals. They write the manuals and I suggest a few clarifications and find a few typos and errors. Not many. So they get 99.9 percent of the credit. I'll accept 0.1 percent or so. --Tom
  5. Thanks for posting the info here, TNSS! You saved me the time and trouble.

    Thanks for the welcome, Steve! I'm a long-time lurker and admirer of your reviews and analysis. Regarding the wind and microphones, I'm no pro about this myself, but I continue to be amazed how much sound on videos is overwhelmed by wind noise. I'd think people would at least try to shield the mike with their body to reduce the problem. Have the wind at your back! Also try a little masking tape or, yes, a sock.

    Does ANYBODY who posts videos about ANYTHING know how to shield a microphone from the wind?
