question

Are the colors on the clapper specific? ie 80% grey or 15%grey? Is the black 100% black and can the white be used to consistently white balance?
Asked by: Sean
I honestly don't use the color swatches. Unless you are using a macro setting they are way too small to do an accurate white balance. In terms of using the greys for exposure I have never tried. I have always thought of them as more of a design feature. That being said it is a great slate. Easy to use and very durable. We ship it everywhere we shoot.

question

Are the colors on the sticks stickers, paint, or inlay?
Asked by: J
I think it's a sticker, but I bought this like 5-6 yrs ago and it's held up. I just used a brand new in the box Elvin or Elvid or whatever slate, and it wore off to almost pure white after only an 18 day shoot. So...they should've bought an Alan Gordon. I had it in my bag, but they were doing a feature and wanted a slate to keep as a memento.

question

How this one feels like comparing to the filmtools slate?
Asked by: Pou Y.
haven't used the film tools slate but this one feels nice and solid. Not flimsy, claps clearly, would recommend.

question

Whats the difference between the pouch and the Elvid soft case?
Asked by: A
The pouch is like a heavy-duty plastic bag. The soft case is padded and thick material.

question

What are the advantages of having the Color-Designed Clap Sticks Made of Wood, as opposed to just the black and white clap sticks?
Asked by: Anonymous
It's really a matter of tradition and what you are used to. I've been shooting videos and TV commercials for over 35 years and have always used wooden clapsticks. They have a definitive sound to them that plastic or other composite clapsticks just can't duplicate. It's kind of like cotton versus polyester clothing. Both fabrics do the job, but there's nothing quite like cotton. During some recent shoots one of my techs experimented with the iPad clapboard app. Very impressive technically, but it takes all the fun out of the clapstick experience. It's kind of like slicing a pie with a sledgehammer.Hope this helps.
