MY MAIN CAMERA PACKAGE...
...is based around the high-end Sony FX6: an extremely versatile 4K camera that, despite its compact size, is at home in any environment from live multi-cam to documentary, or corporate to commercial work.
Additionally, I own a Sony PMW-F5 - an industry workhorse! To accompany the F5, is my premium quality Fujinon XK6 4K servo zoom. With a range of 20-120mm this versatile lens can produce tack-sharp, clean, yet “cinematic” images. It's perfect for a wide range of project styles and formats.
For full-frame options with the FX6 camera, I am running a selection of lovely Tamron lenses.
My “B-Cam” is the compact Sony A6500, which despite its size captures images that comfortably match my F5, and can sit well with the FX6 too. It’s a very useful and capable little camera, which also shoots high-quality stills.
For news, challenging environments, and corporate conference work, I also have a Sony PXW-Z280 camera. This is a 4K “camcorder” style camera with similar image characteristics to the F5, a built in 17x lens, and built-in live streaming options.
I ALSO HAVE...
• a DJI Ronin RS3 hand-held gimbal
• a TVLogic 17" true HD broadcast reference monitor
• a comprehensive lighting kit (including full-spectrum colour options)
• a range of livestreaming and A/V hardware
• a selection high-quality audio equipment
• a heavy duty 3ft slider
• a VoxBox Pro for down-the-line interviews
• zoom demand for Fujinon lens
• a location laptop with useful DIT software
• and a wide range of accessories, grip, cables, and adaptors.
All my kit is flight-cased up - ready for travel abroad if required, and all electricals are maintained to safe standards as per HSE guidelines.
