    sure thing..... and why would a SD or Tascam do that ? Never has for all of my shoots......

    matter of fact considering Zoom's history, chances are much much higher using a Zoom...

    they are not shot on 70mm because they can't afford it... with the Mixpre series that is not an problem - same price range as the field recorders u prefer...
