The Zaxcom ZMT3 miniature wideband transmitter is extremely lightweight and compact, measuring approximately 1.5" x 2.3" x 0.5" (about the size of a Zippo lighter) and weighing in at 2.2 oz (with battery)!
Despite its incredibly low profile, it requires almost no compromises, sharing most of the features of its larger siblings, including built-in backup recording with time code, NeverClip, and Zaxcom High Density (ZHD) modulation. (Here's a handy ZHD transmitter comparison chart)
New to the ZMT is the capibility to output audio or time code for jamming through the mic connector, an A-D converter with a 108 dB dynamic range (~5dB wider than previous models), and a removable screw on top to allow for mounting or hanging. A standard rechargable Fuji NP-50 or compatible battery will power the unit for up to five and a half hours
The ZMT is priced at $1775 and expected to start soon, so get those pre-orders in now - initial supply will be limited and fulfillment will be first come, first served!
In the meantime, check out Glenn Sanders and Peter Schneider going super-deep on the ZMT's feature set:
