My favorite new $50 toy...

So I just picked up a Contour ShuttleXpress... What a great tool. I haven't used hardware job/shuttle attachments on the PC before (only on traditional editing systems) and this one makes my recent task of scrubbing endless footage in Premiere a bit less painful.

At first it might look flimsy and that the base wouldn't be heavy enough to not move around, it's not and it sticks in one place, flat quite easily. I'm very impressed, especially for the price.

If you don't have an external job/shuttle dial and you scrub a lot of footage, I highly recommend picking one up, it becomes a must have.

Yes, I have Shuttle Pro 2 and it`s awesome. I feel like losing an arm when I edit without it. Too bad it doesn`t work with my FCP (eve though it should).

Definitely recommended!
