Main 4K Camera

SONY A7III

My main workhorse of choice is the well known "Sony A7III". I got my hands on this in March 2020 and it delivers stunning 4K footage at 30fps with amazing colour depth. It is also capable of 120fps slow-mo while recording in Full HD 1080p. Whether it's shooting in a coffee shop or out in the forest, this beast of a camera can handle it all and deliver amazing footage.

Main LEns

TAMRON 28-75mm (F2.8)

My main glass of choice is the "Tamron 28-75mm". This lens delivers a crisp image with a constant aperture of F2.8 throughout the whole focal range. This lens is very popular for filmmakers and in most cases, it replaces the original kit lens that comes with the Sony A7III. 

Secondary Camera

Canon 70D

For the past 4 years, I have used the Canon 70D as my main driver for photo and video. I now use this camera primarily for photography after getting the Sony A7III. This camera still has the ability to take amazing photos to this day. I use a variety of lenses with this camera including the Canon 50mm also known as the "Nifty Fifty". This lens is one of Canon's most popular lenses especially with its low F Stop of F1.8 which produces some amazing photos. I also use the Canon 10-22mm USM and the Samyang 14mm which are great ultrawide lenses for photo and video.

the other bits

Tripod and Grip

For the past couple of years, I have been using tripods from Velbon and Primaphoto. Even though these are static tripods I do chuck on a fluid head when fluid shots are needed. For those extra smooth shots, I use a carbon slider which I've had for the past 3 years and it produces gorgeous shots.

Sound

Although being behind the lens is my speciality, I also use the Rode VideoMicro and quite often have my hands on Zoom audio recorders and Rode NTG shotgun microphones. All of these capturing spectacular sound in their own ways.

The Setup

When making the move to filming in 4k resolution you need a pc to handle it. I built this setup at the start of 2020 to be able to handle it all.
