This clapboard gives you everything you need to mark your scenes. As an editor, as well as a shooter, I use the white and black of the sticks to set color correction if necessary. The grey is not an 18% grey though. The color sticks make it easier to match cameras as well. It seems well built, but I can see the acrylic coming off the sticks in a few years. Keep the box it arrives in so you don't scratch it while on the move.

I used it on a four day shoot and not only did a screw on the hinge come loose, but one of the sticks chipped. Minor inconveniences, but probably not worth it if more expensive slates are going to be more durable. Would have given it 2.5 out of 5 but I can't.

    It really is great to work with, clap is crisp and expo markers don't leave a mark when you wipe it off

      It's great for what it is. Careful of the screws in the back of the clapper part. A bit loose sometimes.

        Received it Friday - started using it Saturday and have been relentless with it since. It's been with me in cars, outside and on set and it is nice a sturdy and gets the job done. Easy to write on and erase too.Just be prepared for a strong magnet holding the clapper together (which is better than the alternative)

        Construction is slightly rickety, but for the cost it is a great little clapper. Perfect for keeping you on track during filming. Not much else to say.

                Good price, but if I were purchasing again I'd spring for a better one. It's a subtle thing, but this slate is a bit too bulky and doesn't clap as crisply as a slate should. I know this well because I'm editing two projects side by side, one using this and one a better slate. The sound for this one court of echoes over two frames.

                This is nitpicking though--it does what it's supposed to.

                  I do so much editing now that I am in an MFA/Film program that I got tired of all the little clips and having to keep track of what was what. Having a rock solid and affordable clapboard is already making a difference for me in that logging time is greatly reduced by taking the time to do it right from the first clap to the last. It also, I think, shows a level of professionalism to have certain iconic pieces of gear on set which tend to up the bar for everyone. I shoot a lit in the mountains and needed tough gear too. I suggest the crayons rather than the dry erase though.

                    My students feel more legit now that they have a clapboard. They were so excited to use it and it seems to be very well made and is super easy to write on and erase quickly.

                      This clapboard is great. Feels very well put together, the text is embossed into the white board. The clap sticks look and sound great, although they do have some signs of wear at the hinge after only one shoot. Would recommend to any aspiring filmmaker!

                            I was a little hesitant to buy such an inexpensive clapper but it's well built, has a pair of magnets in the jaws that give a good loud snap and then stay closed. Add a dry-erase marker to fill in details on the whiteboard, and you are good to go.

                              Great slate, it's light wight and durable. Perfect size, I carry mine in my ditty bag. The magnetic closure at the ends of the sticks are great, keeps them from flapping around.
