Rishi Persaud was similarly impressed: “The idea of being able to manage a set of several cameras through a single piece of equipment is a game changer compared to how we normally operate. Fantastic!” “The MCX-X500 ease of use and functionality can be a real money (and time) saver. When you know what it’s able to do—its simple, clean design can almost leave you perplexed as to how such a compact, portable machine can run an entire shoot.”
Maleena Pone commented: “As a multi-skilled video journalist I am often responsible for running the entire operation on my own—from producing, self-shooting/directing and editing lots of my projects. Having such a user friendly and nimble piece of on-location equipment, that you can operate from the comfort of your chair, saves lots of time and makes a huge impact to my capacity to multi-task and maximize creativity during a shoot. I’m seriously impressed and am already thinking of ways I can use this for future projects, from Facebook Live discussions to pre-recorded corporate events.”
At the end of the shoot, being able to quickly take down the equipment was appreciated, particularly as the whole lot—mixer, cables, monitor, a couple of cameras plus tripods—all fitted into the back of a small car.
