      Comments about Alan Gordon Enterprises Color Combo Scene Slate with Pouch and Marker:

      I've never used a clap stick before for my growing video documentary work. Now that I've wasted many hours on various projects trying to sync up the external audio with the video from my Nikon D800, I recognize the value of "clapping" every time the video or audio is restarted. At this stage, I'm not so much interested in recording details about the particular scene, just making sure that there is an easily identifiable starting point for each recording device.

      I just received this slate and have yet to use it but it seems to be very well made and I expect it to outlast me. If it falls apart, I'll rewrite this review and let you know. The concept behind this device has been around about 100 years, and for good reason. The need to sync sound with video is as important as ever. Video editing software cannot be depended upon to correctly sync. I have found that machine synced audio/video has often caused the video to disappear. Manual syncing can avoid this problem. I expect this device to keep my synced.

        Comments about Alan Gordon Enterprises Color Combo Scene Slate with Pouch and Marker:

        I borrowed someone's Alan Gordon slate and realized, this is the one to get. The magnets are strong, which has always been important to me and the hinges don't have much play in it (even on the well worn one I borrowed).

        I liked the sound of it...it's easy to get a clear sound with it. Later, as I was looking at the literature about it, I realized that they use Alder wood, which gives it its crisp clear sound.

        Whatever it is, it works well.

                Used this for the first time (ever) the other day and felt all official and stuff! So look forward to using this more. But about the product: Solidly built, clean and solid slate tone. Great product!

                  A solid, well built slate that does the job. Erases easily if you use a good quality dry erase marker. Although I have only had it a little while, it feels like it has some weight and could stand up to extensive use. A great value for the price.

                    Some people just need an affordable, basic "clapper." This is that product. It's well built, large enough for almost anyone's handwriting and much louder than the slate apps designed for iPads. The accompanying pouch helps protect it when not in use.

                    Solid choice for a Marker.

                    I have used this for a few shorts so far and it has held up well. It's pretty light and gets the job done. It may be a bit of a splurge, since you can accomplish the same thing in other ways, but it's definitely nice to have.

                                The slate works great. Having a pouch and marker is a nice extra with this purchase because, let's face it, I wouldn't have bought a pouch right away and one of the production assistants would have been scrambling to find a marker at the last minute so having everything already contained together is great for peace of mind!

                                  I think this one is made well and doesn't seem to have the falling out screw shortcoming of the very popular Pearstone slate. I chose it also because of the included carry pouch (keeps the rest of gear clean) and the included dry-erase marker was good in a hurry.

                                  Comments about Alan Gordon Enterprises Color Combo Scene Slate with Pouch and Marker:

                                  I received my product a few days ago. I have been using it for some student shorts and works well. I like it a lot and gets the job done. However, I will say it is a bit pricey. The pouch it comes with is small mesh pouch with no strap or way to carry it so it would be better fitted in a bag. I found that trying to remove the marker where you have written something down can be challenging to remove if it has been on for a long period of time. Overall, I like the clap board the marker and bag was nice to have and helps with the production. The colors help too overall it is good but I have seen better.
