Cool! I'm actually glad to hear that it really is the tool for the job in spite of my concerns over its bulkiness. Slates are just stinking awesome. Thanks for your clarification!
The problem isn't actually syncing. I've used a large carabiner for that in the past. I'm thinking about how I'm going to figure out which audio recording goes with which video recording on my computer. I'd imagine (but I don't know) that it would take a lot of time to do that if you shot a lot of video beforehand, especially if you had to listen to a couple seconds of each video/audio track to see if they match. The only reason why I said slate was because I figure if I have a board with writing on it for organization and a carabiner for syncing, then I might as well just get a slate and kill two birds with one stone. I should have mentioned that I'm new to all of this, so if I'm missing some obvious point, then that's why.
Wow, that's impressive. Thanks!
Thanks! I actually continued doing research after posting this, and realized that monitor calibrators aren't as expensive as I had originally thought (as you demonstraited). I think I must have read an article that was geared toward hollywood film-level standards of calibration.
Just saw this. Thanks! I figured there had to be some technological difference. I'll keep that in mind.
Thanks, but I can't use premiere right now due to money. I'll keep it in mind when I eventually get to that point, though.
