Cameras and gear I work with
Constantly testing new cameras, tools or techniques that speed up the video prodcution workflow and raise production value is an essential part of my work, as it ensures to always deliver the highest possible outcome for my clients.
I carefully choose a camera and other production equipment according to the requirements of a project and the budget. All aspects of a camera or special tools such as lights and stabilizers used will be discussed prior to the production process with my clients. We are very well equipped with cameras, lighting fixtures of any kind and wireless microphones as well as monitors and also have a big pool of staff – from recording specialists to lighting operators if it comes to shooting with a bigger team. On top of that, working together with all big video rental companies all over Germany ensures that I have instant access to additional camera equipment at any time and also can instantly rent in more light or sound equipment.
There are different setups and digital camera systems availlable which are suitable for different cases of shooting. From HD to 4K and slow motion shots, from RAW video to LOG and HDR – there is always a setup that we can provide which fits your production’s needs. Additional gear as well as camera operators can always be rented in for bigger setups and projects. We always try to deliver cinematic images, therefore I often use big sensor cameras such as the Sony PXW-FS7 II (which is even capable of capturing RAW, LOG and HDR altogether) or Canon’s Cinema EOS C300 MkII as well as DSLRs and other digital 4K cameras. If small form factors and portability are a demand, diffenent lightwheight systems are also availlable like the Sony Alpha series: A7R3, A7S2 and A7III to shoot HD and 4K. In combination with our stabilizer systems, like the Ronin S for example, one can get extremely smooth camera movements and fluid shots.
Different setups including 4K shoulder cameras, production mixers and switches as well as technical staff for events and live production – what ever your production needs – please don’t hesitate to ask for the best possible solution and highest quality. At dsp media, we provide technical event solutions and AV equipment for your trade show booth, shoot press conference or live event video as well as streaming.
