Important note for first year students re: purchasing equipment

Wednesday, 03 September 2014 14:18

Hello all first year students,

The Zoom H1 recorder is available at: Axe Music at 4140 Macleod Trial and at Long and McQuade on 225 58th Ave. Both have stock as of 2:30 pm Wednesday Sept 3rd.
The Audio Technica ATR3350 lavalier microphone can be ordered through Long and McQuade. 

The Canon T3i is a good choice for the course, you do not need to buy up. If the sales clerk does pressure you get her/his name and report it to me as I have 
good relationships with the store managers.

The Hard drives with Firewire 800 can be found at the Apple store or the Apple store online. The Lacie or G-Drive mini have models with the Firewire 800 connection.
The Western Digital brand is harder to find with the Firewire connection but I recently purchased one online at

You will not need the Sescom cable or the hot shoe adaptor until January. The Camera store does have both but you could order it from Henry's Cameras in
 Toronto. I purchased one from Henry’s last February and the shipping was free.

Hope this helps,
