I just wanted to share my experience with the Tangent Element Series - or more specific - the Tangent Element Tk (the trackball element). I use Davinci Resolve on a daily basis, and when I started colorgrading, I found it very frustrating using the mouse for correction and enhancement. Especially when doing primary grading and colormatching. The mouse simply couldn't do the trick. I started looking around for solutions that wouldn't ruin me completely, and fell across both Tangent Element and Tangent Wave. I ended up choosing just the Element Tk, because of the ability to upgrade the Control Surface in a later stage, and not limiting my options for control.
I started with the trackball element, because this was exactly the tools I needed to begin with. The colorwheels in Davinci are simply too responsive with the mouse. I definatly will be getting other elements as soon as possible
