    The redundant audio would be in-camera, or I could always get a cheaper recorder. On one hand it's three big eggs in one basket, on the other hand, they're nice eggs in a nice basket

    Good point, I don't see anything either. It is why I think a MixPre/302/442/552 would be ideal in front.

    Probably with the combo shuttle/push button wheel on the right side.

    The Pix units we showed at NAB were preview firmware, so things might be different when it ships in July, but:

    There is a button on the front face labeled "audio". In the current firmware, pushing this button brings up meters for all audio inputs. Turning the encoder knob on the right highlights the inputs in turn and pushing the encoder in selects that input for gain adjustment. With the input selected, turning the encoder adjusts the gain which is shown as a dB value. Of course the method(s) for changing gain on audio inputs could be changed in future versions of firmware.

    Wow - very cool! For my own personal needs (and the needs of my clients), this Sound Devices PIX 240 is the external recorder that has me the most excited . . . so far! Seems to be the most bang for the buck for what I'm looking for. Cheers, SoDe!

    Does anybody know if the PIX has a feature to zoom in on the picture and display the pixels 1:1 on the monitor for focusing? Since they have video scalers on board, maybe they support this feature, too.
