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 and often work solo, so every piece of gear I own is specifically selected to keep us moving while providing a great look. For example, I find I can often 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 or small HMI's through collapsible diffusion to create large, soft sources that are lightweight and set up and move quickly.  

Time is money, and little things like that can mean 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's, HMI's by K5600/Joker, and tungsten sources by ARRI. SmallHD monitors, Lectrosonics wideband 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.

I bid each job individually based on what and where it is. My rate always includes my standard single F5 camera package, which includes basic lighting and sound. Sound operator, additional gear and rentals (if needed) media drives and shipping are extra. Multi-day and half-day rates available. Call for an estimate.
