Ok,

If you are like me, you carry your iPad onset for everything, from camera and 3D rig manuals, ordering lunch, reading the script to using the damn thing as a slate when needed, and for the last usage the people over at Pomfort had come up with one of the coolest ideas,(though kind of expensive) but here it is, the iPad Slate.



This is a hard shell that goes over the your iPad or iPad2 to give you that full Slate experience when using a digital slate app like Movie✶Slate

iPad case with mechanical clapper sticks
Closing magnet: Loud and clear clap sound
Houses both iPad and iPad2
All controls and interfaces of iPad are accessible
Robust design, high quality materials
Numbered edition, manufactured and assembled in Germany
Integrates with Movie★Slate iPad app (sold separately)

Go take a look here http://pomfort.com/mamboframe/?utm_source=newsletter13&utm_medium=email&utm...

The question is, why the heck do you actually need the clapper when all of the numerous iPad slating apps on the market have simultaneous beeps and lights to indicate sync, which are much more accurate?

mainly because you cannot see the flashes and lights over an audio track....

I shoot a lot of dual system sound and a clapper is still needed for audio only recording.

The beeps suffice in the situations I've been working in lately, but they've mostly all been shoots on rather small stages. Are you suggesting the clapper is louder and thus useful in larger shooting areas?

Correct, especially when outside on location, the other issue I have run into was the AC having the speaker covered with their hand that reduced the beep to inaudible.
