  • Cavision Next-Generation Slate with LED Light and Color Clap Sticks

    The Cavision Next-Generation Slate with LED Light and Color Clap Sticks is an updated version of the classic, film set, clapper slate. Clapping sticks provide simple and virtually foolproof visual and audio sync points when using a separate audio device to record audio (double system sound). The slate incorporates an LED light unit that illuminates the film title/production name section of the slate.

    It features color swatches on the clap sticks, a pre-printed acrylic face to use available dry erase markers on, and an ABS resonance chamber on the back that amplifies the bang of the clap sticks closing, which is useful in noisy environments. The chamber also provides support to the slate itself, making it sturdier.

    The slate's latch system holds the sticks closed, so they don't pop open when you are carrying the slate in between shots. The latch also means that you no longer need magnets and a stiff hinge to hold the slate closed, allowing the slate's single bolt hinge to provide free movement. A slot incorporated into the back of the slate provides a convenient way to hold the slate during operation. The slate is suitable for use on set or as a presentation item to the filmmaker when the film is done shooting.

    LED unit backlights the production name field on the slate, providing legibility when shooting in dim/dark conditions. The light automatically turns off when the sticks are closed.
    The LED light offers 5 modes:
    • Fast-Flash
    • Slow-Flash
    • Bright
    • Dim
    • Bright-Flash
    LED light lasts approximately 5-hours per charge.
    The slate incorporates an internal charger with built in USB cable. You can charge the internal batteries via USB or use the included USB to 110/120VAC adapter.
    Resonance Chamber amplifies the clap of the sticks, making it a crisper sound.
    Pre-printed text is under the top acrylic surface, protecting the printing from wear and blurring over time.
    Text fields: Prod., Roll, Scene, Shot, Take, Director, Show ID#, Camera, and Date.

Next-Generation Color Clapper Slate with LED Light and Soft Case Kit is rated 2.5 out of 5 by 2.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Battery doesn't hold charge Had this plugged into mains power for quite a while and doesn't seem to hold any of its charge. Only works when plugged into mains or external power devices (does not work as advertised). The unit is made from quite cheap material, so not really to my liking. Not a reliable product at all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesome Features :) Plastic Clapper :( So this slate is pretty good. Just gonna get that out of the way right now lol. Short review Overall im impressed with the slate. It has some nice functions that really are worth the money. It has a grip in the back for easy hand holding. It has a light that illuminates the slate with a few different light levels and a blinking mode. One of the things i like about it is this little button just at the edge of the clapper sticks that turns off the light when clapped for a quick transition into shooting. I mean to me its the best thing you can get with out paying for a Denke Timecode slate. Pros Its got a lot of nicely laid out marking areas. I mainly bought it for the colored paint on the clapper area. I usually like that for doing post work. It makes it easier to do a rough color with the white, black, and primaries always first in the shot. The back light is amazing for dark or night scenes. Cons Its built entirely of plastic :( including the clapper section. While that doesn't sound too bad now its clapper noise is not as sharp as wooden clappers would be. Also it sounds hollow which gives you more of a reverberance to the clapping noise. This little catch at the edge of the clapper - Its used to lock the clapper in the closed position which is kinda cool. But instead it actually prevents it from clapping all the way down and staying down when doing soft sticks. I wish they replaced it with a small hook or Velcro or something. Overall its pros out weigh the cons in my view
