Heh, you said “jog/shuttle”

I got another new toy, I love birthdays. I�ve been thinking about getting a jog/shuttle for quite a while, but could never justify it to myself. It finally just seemed time.

For those that don�t know what it is, it�s a device that allows you to easily step through a single frame at a time and fast-forward or fast-reverse. The center circle is used for single frames (shuttle), and the spring loaded ring is used for FF and FR (jog).

I got the ShuttleXpress by Contour, it�s the least expensive I could find, about $40 from 4VideoEquipment.com. I really, really like it. Yes, all it does is map keyboard shortcuts, but it�s just much easier to use. I never go to the keyboard anymore. It�s also got 5 buttons, you can map them to the keyboard or mouse clicks/wheel movement. Plus you get to feel like a pro!
