    I like to use hirose to power the camera both using D tap and some times from the wall outlet. But I think the hirose psu is rather pricy. Its this one.

    Would you advice to get this or do you use a one from different manufacturer? It just a little funny that the hawkwood hirose adapter+hirose to dtap+psu adapter cost close to half the price of the mixpre.

    Here is 3 ways to mount the mixpre-6. With a bottomplate you can get the mixpre-6 centered better under the camera. But Im not sure If i should trust this one screw to hold the camera.
    Its also nice to mount the mixpre to the side of the camerain terms of footprint to the camera. But I really like to have the left side handle there.
    Any other good mounting options I might been missing?

    If you could find an adapter that let you screw it directly onto the rods (so it lays flat under the V-Mount Battery) that'd probably be the way to do it.
    Something like a lens support with the right screw size (1/4 in 20 thread) or a rod clamp with mounting points.

    If that's sort of what you're doing for the behind the V-Mount position, maybe a male to male screw is all you need:

    Personally I'd probably prefer the third of the three pics you've got.

    I you look at the third picture the xlr cables would come out from the top and bottom. Having them coming from the top would notbe optimal for the cables and put stress on the ports. Is there perhaps ways around this? Like angled xlr cables and some kind of cable clamp to lockethe cable to rods.

    Use low profile XLR cables.
    I use lots of them in my mixing bag already with my receivers sent to my recorder.

    Just set up a new OR27 bag with the Zoom F8n and pretty happy with it. I like it better then our 633 we've been using although I'm not the sound guy. Also got a couple of the new Senn G4 500 series and pretty happy with those as well.

    This guy has a good little course on the Zoom F8n. https://school.learnlightandsound.co...-your-recorder

    Look the image with 3 different ways to mount a mixpre-6 to a camera. Most commonly I do it like image to the right.

    Under the camera there is a bottom plate. To that bottom plate I connect a dual rod clamp and camera plate.

    The problem is that the rod clamps hinders me to slide the camera plate forward enough to reach the balance point on the tripod head. (mounted under the cameras baseplate.). This make it impossible to balance the camera on my Satchler FS8 head. I try to post an better image on this tomorrow.

    I hope there is some good solution for this to be found.

    Here is a couple of images that shows the problem. As you se its only possible to move the camera forward a cm before the rod clamps will hit the tripod head. The easiest solution is off course to mount the rod clamps the opposite direction like Michael Lindsay did in post #2. But then you block the air flow. But perhaps this is so minor its have no impact.

    Here is a better view of how much the rod clamps block the vent.
