ikan PS01 reviews

PS01 9x11" White Production Slate is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 31.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing Slate I am a student at a college in New Jersey and often times create short films with other students for personal as well as school projects. This has made synchronizing audio a hella of a lot easier!!!! I don't know why I waited to so long to get it. I would also recommend purchasing Low Odor markers as they easily wipe off the board. (I also use a microfiber cloth to prolong the life of the slateboard. This makes an awesome clapping sound that is easy to find in the audio timeline. This is perfect for my budget now until one day I am able to afford a digital production slate

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Value I use this product for my own small independent films, and for videos related to my high school's news broadcast. The board itself is all that you need in a production slate. I personally use dry-erase markers, and it seems to erase cleanly. The materials used in the product feel durable, so this product works fine even if you bang it up a bit. The clapper sticks are big and easy to grip, and they even have two magnets that make sure they stay together when not in use. I have yet to encounter any issues with this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sure lighter than in the Stone Age... With the sound quality on HDLSRs being what it is (ie: crummy for the most part), things have come full circle with the need for external synch sound and this Ikan slate is perfect to help register that hand-shake. I like that the back doubles as a white card, too. I personally missed the days of having to call Marker! before a take and here they are again for us HD punks. I'll still call to check the gate after a scene, but it's mostly to amuse my old-school friends & confuse young DPs...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Pretty good This production slate is built very well. Easy to write on easy to clean off. My only complaint is that you probably want to check to make sure that all the screws are tightened when you get it. Mine were loose and flew off after I used it a couple of times. But once I tightened the screws everything was fine!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Much better quality than price suggest! I've used this slate for a short, independent film. It was several days of intensive use (the nature of the film called for a LOT of short scenes, and due to the complexity of them a lot of takes were needed). The slate managed it with no issues. Given, I always erased the markings every evening, but there are no stains in it. The magnet that holds the clapper together was a really nice detail for back slating. After the shot, the slate still feels as sturdy as it did when I first got it. For only about $15 more than the toy ones, this slate is a no-brainer.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from A Good Number Of Issues This device was purchased for the filming of a pilot episode for a new series. The product looks nice, has the appropriate sections, and functions in a very basic way. But after 2 days of principal photography (150-200 claps), the small metal magnets imbedded broke loose and emerged out of the under-clap side of the arm / base. Additionally it began to crack near the Ikan marque. Some reviews have mentioned it was very tight but seemed to loosen up after 15 or 20 claps. Second issue. You absolutely have to purchase Expo 2 or another Ikan suggested markers to use with the board. A total inability to locate Expo 2 markers and increasing duties on my PA's led me to finally just purchase some special edition now easier to erase Expo markers. On the drive home I called Ikan and spoke with 3 different reps about the markers I had purchased, if it really did make a significant difference, and the conflicting instructions the slate came with. The instructions suggest a number of acceptable markers to use with the board including Expo 2 and lastly any other low odor marker with the same chemical composition. The problem is that the original Expo IS a low odor marker and how am I supposed to know if it's of the same composition or not? I told the Ikan rep that I had tried 3 different shops and no one carried Expo 2 or any of the other pens Ikan suggested. I told them that one of the pen manufacturers listed on the instructions had actually changed company names since the directions where printed which made me assume that the directions were out of date. On top of the name change info the third store (specialty pen shop) gave me, the store employee added that Expo 2 was an older model Expo put out that she hasn't seen around in a while. The rep was nice but it took a really long time to get a straight answer which was, yes, the original Expo markers will destroy the board- we tested one as early as a month ago and it left streaks even after wiping quickly. The rep admitted that the instructions needed revision to read any low odor maker EXCEPT Expo. That was a few weeks ago. Halfway through this review I decided to call them again and ask them about the process of getting the thing replaced for a nicer edition. The representative told me the main difference between the nicer one and mine was that it was engraved instead of printed on. He indicated that the same composite wood (that broke on mine) was used for the nicer one and the only difference was the engraving. He told me that I had to send it back on my dime and the inspector would determine if it was user error or manufacturer defect. The longer I spent on the phone asking questions the more I got the impression that this was simply a low quality product. The Ikan site looks nice, their other products look pretty decent, the reps were kind and one of them was helpful, but the fact of the matter is that I received THIS particular product so I'm reviewing THIS exact one. I don't really have a lot of time to give another one a try so I'm just going to have to return it to B&H. Some reviews here read along the lines of yeah it's cheap but it gets the job done but for the current price I wouldn't bother. If this was an economy product it would be exactly half of this price. I believe in cutting corners when you can but on something that's critical to a principle photography shoot, it's not worth it. What I'm probably going to do is just build something, which is not what I wanted to do when I've now got 50gb of footage to review and a second shoot to plan next month. I will probably inset a pane of photo frame glass in a wood frame with some foam rubber for shock absorption. I took a lot of time with this review because I thought it might help others save a few irritating hours. I want to feel bad about this type of review but I don't. I actually just picked it out of our production crate to take a quick look before I send it back. Thinking to myself, maybe this thing can just be used as is. The slate came right off the clapper in my hands. Unreal.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Ok Product really isnt much you can say about a slate other than it works. Does stain rather easily with the dry erase markers and alcohol would not cut it.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Gets the job done We are using this slate to shoot a short film. It is small enough to get into the frame easily, lightweight enough for the directors daughter (11 years old) to hold it all afternoon. I would give it five stars if it were a little more solid on the hinge, but does what we need it to do. They should send a paper with hints and tricks to using the product. Would recommend at this price!
