Question for Jucedlink DT454 users, especaly if you have a 550D
on Nov 11, 2011 at 10:23:40 pm

I ended up getting the Betchtec rather than the Jucedlink and think I may of made as mistake. It does not put out enough power to allow me to turn off all the pre-amps in the camera (works with just An analogue however) and it goes through a 9v battery every 2/3 hours (using 2 phantom power microphones).

I am wondering if I should sell the Beatchtek and buy a Jucedlink so have a couple of questions for any Jucedlink users out there. If you are kind enough to answer can you let me know what camera you use and if you use ML (Magic Lantern) and if so do you use latest version.

So if you turn off all the preamps (I guess you need to use something like ML to do this) does the box push out enough signal. I have been told by Beatchteck it can do 15dB and Jucedlink site mentions '30dB low-noise typ max gain (single ended, stereo)', what is single ended stereo?

Secondly how long does the battery last in the Jucedlink (with 1/2 phantom powered mics)?

Lastly, Beatchteck bloke said 'I believe that this firmware upgrade may be reducing the gain of the camera severely which is why you are not getting enough level.', does this make any sense?

Regards,
Ben

Thanks, looks like a nice pre-amp but as bit above my budget at the moment.

Update, I got hold of the Jucedlink and it seems to push out a weaker signal than Beachtek. Also Jucedlink also gets through batteries very fast.
