Cameras

Canon c200b

Our main camera. 4k Raw Lite at up to 60 Fps. It also shoots Mp4s of a variety of sizes and frame rates, but once you've graded the Raws, its very hard to shoot anything else.
Here are some videos we've made about the camera:

Canon 5d m4

Go-to Stills and Video camera. I’ve owned the mark 2, 3 and now 4.

Not a pro video camera, but good enough to use in a pinch and matches well with the c200.

Blackmagic Video Assist

We use both the 5" and 7" versions on set almost every day. They are a huge improvement from built-in screen to monitor and pull focus from. The 7" also records in 4k and features a host of great features including false color, scopes and timecode in.

The 7" goes through batteries pretty quickly. We've found it a lot easier to power it off the v-mount battery through d-tap with this cable.
