Yeah. Well, I'll bring it anyway; if it ends up not being used, it'll just stay in the car. No harm done.

A Canon MVX330i (read: a fairly old consumer model that I bought off ebay primarily to test dvswitch patches). It's not very complicated, but it gets the job done...

A Renault Mégane, if you must know.

Will do so. But note that if the other one doesn't arrive in time, I'll need to use it myself :-)

(also, I've used it as a dvswitch station before, so it's powerful enough for that, should that matter)

Indeed. So I'll leave that one at home, unless you tell me otherwise.

OBTW, I could also bring:
- 1, maybe 2, 8-port gigabit switches,
- Five tally lights (the ones I brought to dc10)
- Four USB headsets (I much prefer the ability to directly talk to camera people over having to do real actual handwaving, and yes I'll do the fighting with asterisk to get that working :-)
