This is most of what we have. We love to acquire more gear as needed. We may or may not use or bring all this gear a particular project.

Video Cameras

  1. Sony ea50uh with various e-mount lenses (16mm to 50mm, 18mm f2.8, 18mm to 200mm, 35mm f1.8)
    The ea50uh is typically the main camera. It is a professional, larger “video” camera that shoots beautiful HD video. It may be used run and gun style with it’s shoulder mount but typically is operated via tripod. This camera has two XLR inputs for lav mics or the shotgun mic and/or internal mic.
  2. Sony a6500 (uses same lenses as ea50uh above)
    This is a DSLR that is great for 4K b-roll. I will only shoot video on this camera for 20 minutes at a time due to heating and time restrictions. It is the main camera for my slider. I also have an awesome 3 axis gimble specifically for this camera for steady motion shots. And I have a pano head to do incredible 360 panos and virtual tours.
  3. Two Sony FDR AX100’s (4K)
    They are great for peripheral cameras I am not personally manning as they enable me to have a lot of room for post scaling and achieve a ken burns effect (artificial zooms and pans/tilts) with virtually no degradation. While these cameras have a beautiful large one inch sensor, these sensors are not near the size as the APS-C sensors on the a6500 or ea50uh. Consequently, these cameras have a different look than the APS-C cameras do. Nonetheless, these 4K cameras are awesome to cut to, especially when used for the right shots.All of the above cameras (ea50uh, a6500, and FDR AX100’s) shoot onto SD cards. And all of the cameras use H.264 format.
