    TS-3 Time Code Slate - Color Clapper, EL Backlit Display is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 5.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful product I think they really are the industry's market leader! I use this time code slate on a almost daily base.... and i love it. It has dramatically improved my workflow. As a director, here in the Netherlands, i often work with 2 or 3 (video) camera set up's. Working with this slate made editing so much more easy. you have this multiple control 1 the audio clap 2 the visual time code 3 the blue back light it works fast and has proven highly reliable, so far.. a superior product... dirk de jong director the Netherlands

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from I love it This is a must-have for production audio, which I thought was a bad thing, but this slate is amazing and really makes an impression on everyone on set.The construction is really solid and the operation is fairly simple to get it going. Stays in sync with my 633 for several hours without having to re-jam, and the backlight makes it easy to slate in dark conditions, which are more and more common with digital productions. The price seems a little high for what it is, and the instructions that come with it are a little hard to follow. There is a video on their website that is much clearer. I suggest watching it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Priceless Tool First plus, it is easy to set-up right out of the box. Sync's like a charm. If you are in low light or slate is farther then normal; 3 simple positions to intensify the brightness. So many ways to customize read time hold, to fit your confort zone. If you miss a log marker, you can scroll back. The price was more then I wanted to pay, but the time savings in post, has more then paid for it. Use dry erase markers and it wipes clean in seconds for the next retake. I would highly recommend the Denecke TS-3, because of its multiple frame rate adjustments, easy to jam camera's, and so easy to read. Like I said the time I saved in post with the clear, bright read-out: Priceless. I would recommend the TS-3 to for all productions.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from It's the industry standard I do by-the-book video production, which means scripting, time code, all using a 2-camera set-up. The Denecke TS-3 brings all of those elements together and makes life in post production easy--especially if you record sound to an external recorder with TC. I ordered the backlit version (about $300 extra to the price of a standard TS-3) of the TS-3 which I find very useful in a low-light condition. Not only can the TS-3 read TC but it can also generate TC (it has a SB-2 Syncbox TC Generator built in) at various frame and drop rates. All parameters are easy to set by a combinaiton of a DIP switch and a settings dial within the slate. To get to your camera to read or generate TC you will have to make up a cable as the TS-3 requires a mono TS 1.4 plug to whatever your camera's TC In/Out plug requirements are (mine was BNC). If you ever watch movie outtakes or behind-the-scene videos from Special Feature, notice the slate they use. 90% of the time it will be a Denecke TS-3. The Denecke slate is built like a tank and comes with a well designed carry bag and 2 battery holders. For the price, they could have included an AC adaptor. But, a fresh load of AAs will last you a day's worth of shooting if you remember to keep the sticks closed.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wonderful Slate! For a while B&H was out of this particular model and Im glad I waited. I love the larger size 8.25 x 11 inches, it makes reading and writing easier. And the backlit part is great for dim scenes. It has the standard frame rates but mostly I just use the auto setting and it works great.
