The Colored Clapperboard vs. GretagMacbeth

Item1: Birns & Sawyer | 425011 Professional Acrylic Producti | 425011

Item2: GretagMacbeth

Lost my old clapperboard which had a color calibrated mini Macbeth color card on it. Time to buy replacements. Is a clapperboard with the color calibrated clapper sticks good enough? Or should I use this opportunity to get a fancier GretagMacbeth and a separate Clapper Board.

I work as an independent camera op so I work all over the place, but only really concerned (about Color Calibrated CB vs Macbeth and separate standard CB) about a feature length documentary I'm working on.

Get another Macbeth. It's a lot more useful, consistent, universally accepted.
