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 11-200mm. 

Every piece of gear is selected to keep us moving while providing a great look. For example, I find I can often use my stabilized 4K DJI 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, compact LED's or small HMI's through collapsible diffusion to create large, soft sources that are lightweight, quick to set up and move quickly. Time is money, and little things like that mean less time schlepping, more time shooting.  

The rest of my kit includes best-in-class gear from Litepanels, Dracast, K5600/Joker, ARRI, Chrosziel, Anton/Bauer, SmallHD, Lectrosonics, Sachtler and Dana Dolly. A small selection of C-stands, booms, silks, bounce, flags and other standard grip round out a very effective and travel-efficient package.
