New X-TERRA 70 Video - Prospecting and HF DD Coil Uses - AUG 2008

After a few weeks of editing and a week of hand-wringing for being unable to upload to the website, I've managed to get a short film on the X-Terra 70 up onto the MLO TV website where detecting videos are hosted as part of an online competition by some of the channel members.

X-TERRA 70: Prospecting Down Under
CLICK LINK ABOVE TO VIEW VIDEO CLIP

Feel free to take a look if you're new to detecting or own an X-Terra 70... and, if you're one of the many Minelab owners that is also a member of the MLO TV site, please leave a comment if you enjoyed it or found it interesting. This is just a homemade short film that my wife and I made with photographs and footage recorded during our trips out to the Australian Goldfields over the last two seasons. Minelab had no involvement or endorsements for the video. It does show footage showcasing the use of the 6" DD HF coil alongside the Elliptical DD HF coil on the field for Prospecting - and that's something which often gets asked about here.

If you have a rather slow internet connection, let the video load first in your browser window to avoid the 'jitter effect'.

Cheers,

Marco Nero

Enjoyed watching the video Marco, those were some very nice specimens, animals, bugs and minerals. I really enjoy using my XT50 with the 6"dd HF coil, it does good on jewelry as well as coins, don't have the XT 70 as we don't have any goldfields in this area. Thanks for sharing. John

By far the best metal detecting video I've ever seen. Great job.

Excellent work Marco! Absolutely excellent. With your permission, I'd like to link this into our FAQFAQ section. HH Randy



You'll never know for sure......unless you dig it! HH "Digger"




After more than 46-years of detecting, and having owned dozens of different detectors, I've come to the conclusion that maintaining success in the field is largely dependent on three things..... choice of site, acquiring a proper skill set for the detector and the detector itself..... in that order. Research, practice and persistence. There are no substitutes.

Hi Digger/ everyone. Thanks, you're most welcome to add it to the FAQ. That's very kind of you.

All the equipment which I used to make the short video is over 4 years old (including the software, cameras and laptop) so almost anyone can do something similar with what they have at hand. But I can tell you all that the urge to ignore the cameras and just pickup the Detector was so great that on many occasions I was out there swinging the coil rather than unpacking the camera. It gets me out in the fresh air and sunlight and it gives me a chance to appreciate the world from a perspective that I just don't get whilst living in the city.

Happy to share the experiences with others who may not get the chance to get out here.

Regards,



Marco

Thanks Marco.
Even After everything you've posted here for the last month or so I've read, It's just sunk in that the 6" dd goes deeper than the 10x5..
The film is excellent.

Apparently I've lost all rationality, I have been wandering around the site trying to view this video and every time I try something different it brings me back to the beginning. I've registered, signed in, downloaded the appropriate software (three times), and I still get no where. Any good ideas?
