apple color – control surface consideration

Starting to research control surfaces to use with Color in the finishing suite. So far, the three setups in consideration are, in no particular order:
Option 1: JL Cooper Eclipse CX

JLCooper ECLIPSE CX Integrated Colorist Command Station

Option 2: JL Cooper MCS-Spectrum

JLCooper MCS-Spectrum Colorist Control Station

The MCS-Spectrum additionally requires the JL Cooper MCS-3000 Media Command Station W/ No Faders

JLCooper MCS-3000 - Media Command Station Main Console Without Faders

Option 3: Tangent Devices CP200-K, available in black or silver

Tangent Devices CP200-BK Trackbal/Knob Grading Panel

And visiting Tangent’s site I’m reminded of the Wave which I blogged about some months ago when it debuted at NAB

Tangent Devices Wave Panel

There’s a review of the Wave at coloruser.net here and a review by Scott Simmons here.

Lastly but not leastly, there’s the Euphonix MC Color which I’ve blogged about here.

Euphonix MC Color - Color Grading Control Surface

Scott Simmons has a blog review of it here and Oliver Peters has a review of the entire Euphonix Artist series here.  All of these panels are available at B&H.

So right now I’m leaning towards the simplicity and elegance of the Tangent Devices CP200-K. But if cost is a factor (and when is it not if you’re spending your own money), take a close look at the Tangent Devices Wave and the Euphonix MC Color.

And if you’re looking for some good colorist literature, be sure to check out Steve Hullfish’s book The Art and Technique of Digital Color Correction.
