    hey guys,

    i m currently using deathadder 2013 and loving it.
    i use this at home and take it out for wedding same day edit.
    i m looking to get a second mouse, so i can always keep one in the pelican, and dont have to plug and unplug the one at home all the time.

    what suggestions for a second mouse do you guys suggest?

    Huge fan of the Razer Naga Hex -- so much as I have 3 -- one for each of my desktop rigs and 1 for the laptop

    If you need it portable and easy to carry, how about Razer Orochi?

    I use a Razer Taipan as my portable mouse. Found it to be just the right size and adapts to all my gaming/work needs on the go.

    taipan is what i have been looking at as well. but wanna know if it's a palm sized one like the deathadder is?

    Taipan is not ergonomic shape like Deathadder and I remember it is smaller in size compare to Deathadder too.

    thanks for that
    took a closer look at the specs, it's only a couple mm smaller each dimension
    in terms of ergonomic or not, i think it's not too important, as the editing only takes up approximately 3 to 4 hours in the evening, but i do want something reliable
    if the pro gamers can use it for many hours of gaming, then i m sure couple of hours straight editing videos is gonna be fine

    cheers guys

    i m a wedding cinematographer
    in most weddings in hong kong, we have the traditional chinese ceremony in the morning, that's groom goes to brides home or hotel room to play games organised by brides maids, then tea ceremony. after that is usually lunch. after lunch would depends on how the newly weds organise it. sometimes it's marriage ceremony or church ceremony, where they have a march in, sign papers etc, or they leave this part until banquet. if they have their ceremony at the start of the banquet, we usually take a couple of outdoor shots at the park or something.
    the editing of the day would take place starting around 4-5pm, until banquet starts, around 8:30pm

    Oh... You are from HK. I been there once few months ago. I am a Chinese from Malaysia who watch HK drama daily. So, I am very familiar with all these tradition too. When I am at HK, I found that quite hard to find Razer product there. Is it true or I just went to the wrong place. Please excuse my weird habit that I always check out IT item price especially Razer gear wherever I go. :cool::cool::cool:

    i've seen razer products being sold in shamshuipo, mongkok. their prices varies, dunno why. maybe the amount their shop purchases from the distributor? i m not sure. but the price is very similar to purchasing on the official website minus mailing

    hk drama, haha, i dont even watch much myself

    There is Razer product selling in Shamshuipo? No offence, but I think if I want to buy Razer gear I will avoid getting there. Maybe due to my country here there is a lot counterfeit products. :p:p:stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

    I heard there is quite a number of HKer don't really like to watch HK drama, is that true? To be exact, I don't really "watch" HK drama, I "listen" to it while I am playing games. Multi-tasking :cool::cool::cool:

    there's this china brand that's similar to razer, but i haven't really encountered counterfeit razer products so far.
    the shopping arcade that sells computer stuff in the basement and gaming consoles on the upper floor, there has razer products. but they price them slightly higher. i found this other shop in another arcade nearby sells them couple bucks cheaper. they all labeled with the hk distributor stickers, which will give you local warranty. so i guess thats how you tell what's parallel imported or distributor imported

    yea, we ditching the TVB drama because they are shittily produced, and TVB been feeding us fake news, they siding with china governement. those artists who arent have left tvb and went to the new channel thats opening tonight - the HKTV. news reporters who are not favouring the china government have also been punished with no incentives or less air opportunities etc

    I've been using a Deathadder and Mamba since they were released. I've tried to use other mice but they never feel right to me. My suggestion is stick with what you know.

    I have only used the deathadder and Naga, both are great. If you plan on using a laptop, unless you are doing extreme gaming, I recommend the Naga (or any other preferable kind of MMO mouse (but razer is superior lol (all hail razer))) that's just my opinion. Heavy gaming, get the deathadder, else Naga.

    I LOVE my Naga Epic, and highly recommend it.

    Do NOT get the Chroma edition though, as they stripped that model of the one feature that makes the Epic so good, which is the interchangeable side panels that allow the (pre-Chroma) Epics to fit your hand like glove regardless of hand size or grip style.

    The 2014 edition looks the best to me, but I've only ever used the 2012, which has slightly different side buttons.

    I use it all the time for image editing, so I'm sure it'd be a good one for cinematography as well.

    Using macros to merge multiple actions together saves a ton of time...

    For example, most of my macros are geared toward, so I have things like:

    Ctrl+X, <slight delay>, Ctrl+N, <slight delay>, Enter, <slight delay>, Ctrl+V, <slight delay>, S, S, S

    Which does: Cut and copy a selected potion of an image; open a new project window; paste the selected potion of the image into that window; and cycle through the selection tools to activate the "Magic Wand" tool which is almost always the first tool I use when editing an image.

    Stuff like that saves a ton of time, and the Naga is great for it with so many buttons to assign macros to.

    @Haltus Kain I'm not sure that's a fair assessment. I mean, look at how big the fan base is of the newly designed naga 2013/2014 ... now the chroma epic design is the same as that.

    If someone really feels that the standard naga is a really bad fit then they're quite welcome to go to a non-chroma epic, but I think a blanket statement that everyone should just automatically avoid the naga epic chroma because it doesn't have the changeable side plates is a bit too harsh.

    To each their own. If you want to try your luck with the one-size-fits-whoever's-lucky-enough-to-have-a-hand-size-and-grip-style-that's-compatible-with-that-one-size then by all means give it a shot.

    But being that the only thing the Chroma model does better than the previous is the flashy lights, it just doesn't seem worth the risk of it not being a good fit.

    It's a trade-off of fashion vs function, and given the option I would never trade function for fashion. What matters (imo, ofc) is what works and feels the best - at the end of the day, you're going to be looking at the screen anyway, not the mouse.

    I have an Imperator that I use on my laptop, its not to big, and the adjustable side button made it worth my while. I use a Naga 2014 on my desktop.
