Bella DV versus Contour shuttle pro

Originally posted this on the Mac NLE forum but realized this was likely the better spot.

Do any of you have experience with BOTH the Bella DV keyboard with jog shuttle and the Contour shuttle? Which do you like better?

Trying to decide between the two.

Also, do the color editing keys really help speed the workflow up?

Thanks.

I use Contour Shuttle, and must say that is worth every penny. It has a little bit different feeling than "real" jog , but hey, look the price! I found it here (Croatia) for about 50$. First thing was to put the paper stickers (which are not supplied) under clear windows on buttons. Then, after few hours of work i reallized that i don't need any markings because you just memorize what's for what.

I have used both on the same system. It was a system set up by a group who specializes in building NLE's, so why they included two controllers I have no idea. But anyway, the Contour Shuttle Pro is 100x better. On the BellaDV, you don't have the ability to move around the controller as you do on the Shuttle Pro. This is essential for creating a comfortable and efficient work environment. The quality of the parts used on the Shuttle Pro are also much better IMO. Hope this helps.
