Birns & Sawyer 425007 reviews

Economy Dry Erase Production Slate is rated 3.6 out of 5 by 47.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great clapboard for the price! Sure it's not digital, technological, or fancy by any means, this gets the job done. Easily the cheapest clap-board available, this product actually WORKS. It's made out of dry-erase board, so you can easily change all of the information whilst on-set. It's very simple in design, as to be expected. On the down-side, it's a tid-bit flimsy and, if not properly cared for, the white board can get messy. Though it often feels like it's ready to fall apart in your hands, I haven't had a single problem with it at all.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Not as sturdy as I thought For teaching students filmmaking this works, but it won't last long with repeated student use. Knowing how students still have a ways to grow in terms of responsibility and maturity, I'm guessing this slate will last maybe two or three years before it will need to be repaired. What part will need to be repaired? The top clapper board which snaps down on the rest. The hinge will most likely give out in a few years. If you are even a little bit handy with wood and tools you will be able to repair it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A breeze to use, and easy to clean. There are no major concerns with the clapper board's one moving part. Ease of use is evident upon first writing on the board. My students and I have used it for several shots and things have become infinitely easier at the editing stations - students get into the habit of making their shots count, organizing their clips, and keeping equipment clean - including the board. Very economical, and highly durable for even the toughest high school students.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Weak Applause for Clapper The product works for synching audio to video. It produces an audible clack, and dry erase markers can readily be wiped off the white surface. Overall construction is on the weak side, given the price. if the unfinished back side were painted white, it could be used in a pinch for white balance, and more importantly, would protect the clapper's rear pressboard side from water damage.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Basic slate, but best deal for the money I run an independent film production company, which for anyone who doesn't know, means that we're ALWAYS out of money. But there was something I just couldn't stomach about seeing my shots slated on a piece of notebook paper, so I broke down and spent the money on this slate. Most slates (as with all film equipment) are absurdly over-priced, but this one was about the right price for what you get. Granted - it's very basic: just black and white clapper sticks on a loose hinge (the top clapper has to be held up; it won't support itself). And while the front is white marker board, the back is brown pressboard, meaning you can't use the back of this slate to white balance. But overall -- especially if you're shooting digital -- these are fairly minor inconveniences. There are certain pieces of equipment that you just need to spend the money on to aid to the professionalism of your set, and this is definitely one of them.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Travel Tools I bought this to use for a few films I'm shooting in Africa. I wanted something relatively small and simple to travel with. I packed it in bubble-wrap because I was worried about how the clapper is attached to the board, but it seems like a really good, simple, inexpensive clapboard. If you don't need a TC display, this is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a fantastic slate! It is cheap for the what it is...i guess. IT WORKS!!! It doesn't feel like it's going to fall apart. The only reason you would have to fear it falling apart would be if you threw it across a room or decided to break it over your knee. The clapper makes a clapping noise. The dry erase board works. Good deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from And....action! Works great, if you don't need timecode. Engraved lettering, which means it lasts pretty darn well, and large enough spaces to print clearly. Clapper is not as robust as some -- when we sync sound, more expensive slates leave a crisper sound. We've had no issue syncing sound, though.
