I own various high definition shooting kits, which are listed below. In addition to the cameras owned by me, links with most major rental houses enable me to provide any other common format. In addition to my own kit, I have recently supplied; Sony PMW-500, Sony PDW-F800 XDCAM Disc Camera, Sony F5 / F55 & Canon C500 / C300 Cinema Cameras, to a variety of productions.
I also provide a laptop on every shoot, to facilitate off-loading and backing up rushes, logging and on set footage review.
I travel a lot, so my camera and lighting kits are flight cased ready for airline travel. Basic shooting kits can be transported with minimal excess baggage.
