The How and Why of Using a Gaming Keypad to Speed Up Your Work

There are all sorts of ways to speed up your color correction work. The most obvious is to add a colorist control surface to your setup. Less obvious is to take a page from gamers and adapt their hardware to our needs. I’ve previously looked at one such device, the Razer Orbweaver Chroma.

The Logitech G13 is another keypad I’ve been asked to review

The Logitech G13 is a competitor to the Orbweaver. And at half the price but with an added LCD screen, it seems like a pretty good value.

This Insight gives you a close look at how the G13 works

We examine the software that controls the G13. And once it’s programmed, if you can take your programming with you between multiple systems? You’ll also see how the LCD screen works and if I’d buy the G13 over the Orbweaver based on that LCD screen?

In a later Insight, I’ll do a comparison of the Orbweaver and the G13

I haven’t been using the G13 long enough to do a proper comparison between these two similar Keypads. In a few weeks, I’ll follow up this Insight where I compare and contrast the two devices and offer a recommendation for purchase.

Just remember… I LOVE the Orbweaver. It has become an indispensable bit of kit for me. And I can guarantee, whichever of these keypads you decide to buy – it won’t be a mistake.
