Hi guys hope all is well. Looking for a little help towards a recorder.

Will be taking a feed from my Ultra sled and wondering what/how is the best way to do so?!

Would it be fair to say that Archos seem to be leading the market in recorders - or at least a fairly affordable option.

Has anybody used the archos 5 - the inputs require a dock annoyingly and would need to bodge one up from the DVR deck. Is an older model more suited to our kind of work?

Anybody that could put some light on this would be helping so much. Or even point me in the right direction if info is elsewhere... I did do searchs but nothing came up.

Hope all is well and everyone is busy

Cheers for the help there - sorry Mods can delete this if you wish - was working of my phone and google searched etc.

Had a speedy purchase - went with a 100gb Archos AV500 with the travel tap... Read a few ppls kit lists and this one popped up regularly...

Will let you know how it works out.

I'm going to piggyback on this to say that I have a like-new Archos 405 for sale for $75. I've tested it but never used it on a shoot. I'm going a different direction.

Hi Charles

I'll take it off your hands at that price. Beats strapping my little panasonic camcorder to to the Master's post to record external video. I'll send you a message directly.

Hello all

I also just bought my archos 5. Ive been using it on a couple of job and its been working great. Its very easy to use, to watch the videos you recorded and to download them to the computer.. It have alot of nice ad ons like GPS that I have been thinking of bying.. I don have the power cable to my nexus yet, so I have been using it on batteries. But as soon as I have the cable it will be complete. I would like to have something more adapted to field work, but right now I can´t think of having anything else for that price. I would defenetly recommended it.
