Hey everyone, quick question, I'm currently a student, planning an equipment list for my senior thesis and I'm curious about the current line of the Deneke slates, as opposed to the legacy models from years past. My school owens a fully operational Denecke Decode TS-1, which I've been using for a while to mixed success (not all of our cameras can shoot true 24), but I have it within my budget to include a newer model, like the TS-3 in my rental package. From what I can see reading about the newer models, not much as changed, but maybe there's something I'm missing as I've never actually put my hands on anything other than the TS-1?
My question is pretty simple; am I gonna be missing out on anything other than drop frame options (not an issue as we can just shoot true 24 with the camera we're using)? I want to have as much experience with current equipment as I can before I graduate, but if there's little difference between the models I'll save the cash.
