The TIG Q28 BNC
The usual iteration process with tech is more features in a smaller form factor. While the new TIG is certainly smaller and lighter, it offers the same features as the original model. This is a good thing. The primary appeal of the TIG (beyond the audio output/mix feature) was its small form factor relative to the other leading TC boxes. The Q28 is smaller still, meaning less weight on the small cameras that it can enable timecode upon.

As mentioned, this model offers the same feature set as the original TIG (my review of which you can read here), so I won’t bother rehashing those. This is mainly to demonstrate its new svelte design. As cameras get smaller and lighter (and ACs get bitchier...JK, LUV U!), rigs become more elaborate. Any size and weight savings will be appreciated, and the TIG Q28 is a barely-there sync solution.
