Sony 4K/HD  PMW-F5 with Zeiss Primes

Sony 4K/HD  PMW-F5 with Zeiss Primes

My 4K Sony F5 is professional cine-style camera, but also works well for run and gun work. It's state of the art and carefully equipped to be lightweight and efficient. For lenses, I use a combo of Zeiss primes and assorted EF mount zooms that collectively cover 11-300mm. 

I'm usually on the road or in the air, so every piece of gear I own is specifically selected to keep us moving while providing a great look. For example, I can use my stabilized 4K Osmo Pro X5 camera instead of a traditional jib or dolly, saving time setting up, moving and striking bulky gear. I also save time by shooting powerful but compact LED's through collapsible diffusion to create large, lightweight and soft sources that build and move quickly.  

All that means less time schlepping, more time shooting.  And more shots are always a good thing. 

Lighting includes the latest generation of bicolor, high output/high CRI LED panels, HMI's by K5600/Joker, and tungsten open face and fresnels by ARRI.  SmallHD monitors, dual-channel Lectrosonics SR digital hybrid mics/links, Sachtler support, Dana Dolly and a small kit of C-stands, booms, silks, bounce, flags and other standard grip round out the package.
