Cameras and More

A full range of kit available to suit all filming needs, including (but not limited to) those listed below.

Cameras and lenses

With cameras changing so fast it is hard to know which one is best for you.  The classic 2/3"  broadcast camera and the full frame 4K or DSLR style cameras are all excellent in their own way and I believe that they all have their place.   Choosing the right camera for the job and budget is paramount.  I have experience shooting on a wide range cameras (Sony/Canon/Arri/Red) and can provide a range of cameras including the following at competitive rates:

Sony: FS7  (XQD cards)  4K (50 fps 4k  - 2K 180 FPS) 

Comes with XDCA accessory as standard. A great 4K camera with recording codec including XAVC-I and XAVC-L or 422 apple pro res.  HDR Cine ei function and up to180 frames per second in HD.  A great cost effective quality camera. 

 

Sony PDW-f800 - XDCam Cinealta camera 50 fps.  Optical Discs.

The broadcast work horse.

 

Sony PMW-200  (SxS cards XDcam)

A great fixed lens supplement to the FS7 or F800 as a second camera or production run 'n' gun.  

 

Canon  XF305 Shoots 50 Mbs onto CF cards and a production favourite.  

 

 

Canon 5D mkiii - A 'game changer' in it's time - A useful 2nd camera, to fly on a ronin or for BTS stills on your production.

Full range of Zoom and Prime lenses for all cameras.

Drones

Big Drones, Little Drones etc.  The explosion in the drone market means no more expensive helicopters on set and for a small budget you can have big production values.  I am fully insured and CAA PfCO qualified. I fly both, a DJI Inspire 1 V.2 with a 1 or 2 man team and a DJI Mavic pro for light weight practicality and travel.  Both shoot HD/4K video.
