The 'Tangent Element' is the newest colorist control surface on the market and just started shipping about 3 weeks ago.

The Tao of Color visited our good friends at The Studio - B & H, the professional video division of B & H Photo, in New York City to get our hands on this surface and give it a test drive in DaVinci Resolve.

B&H's Michel Suissa and Tao of Color's Patrick Inhofer also offer up some buying advice.

UPDATE 1: I've been informed that for DaVinci Resolve, the Buttons panel (Bt) and the Knobs panel (Kb) must be purchased together. One panel won't work without being paired with the other panel.
