Why is he posting night digs, is he worried the shortage of them may lead to detector muggings?

He probably works in the day and wants to get his video up while demand is high

may sound odd, but i wonder if there is a way to alter the screaming tone on the pinpoint function?
i suffer very badly from tinnitus and just watching those videos made my ears ring. as nice as a machine as it may be, if it cant be altered i would not be able to use one

The big problem for the viewer is that not all the early You-Tubers will have the experience to give an informed opinion so early. I won't be listening to any comments about "It's a great machine" or "I'm really impressed" etc etc. Unless it's proper testing that you can judge from the video the rest will be just noise. And don't forget, some You-Tubers will have found ways to get their hands on one simply because they know having "Minelab Equinox" in their video titles will send their subscriber numbers through the roof.

Take a lot of it with a pinch of salt in my opinion.

What continues to surprise me is that they are available to purchase from Europe, but not in the UK.

This has been the case for some days now. :( Jerry.

ordered my 800 yesterday, long wait I know but I have my Quest Q40 until I get it.
After seeing the Equinox in the salt water was what convinced me to get it.

Some more tests on the beach and wet sand. enjoy ::g (depth test and detecting)

I did read up that a few users said it was a bit nose heavy and had a little to much inertia while swinging.

More unboxing and air test videos hitting YouTube now. Surely someone will film some targets being detected and actually dug at some point this weekend? :-w

Just been wading through all the Equinox videos on YouTube. As a machine it is looking very impressive, a shame that it is proving so elusive! :D

Had a play at Detectival, the only two things I didn't like was the that it seemed coil heavy, but thought maybe that could be sorted by adjusting the shaft.
Also the tones seemed muffled through the plug in Minelab headphones, perhaps could be rectified by tone adjustment.
