In Los Angeles, California, we have many different options of camera gear that we can use for your project. We’ve made a list of the ones that our Los Angeles video camera crews typically use. Whether we’re filming your project at the Getty Center or shooting b-roll in front of the Chinese Theatre, our favorite cameras, along with the right lens kit and operator are what will help us capture amazing footage.

Below is our list of the 8 awesome cameras used by the top Los Angeles video camera crews. From HD 1080p to 4k, we have an amazing crew of DP’s and cinematographers that use the best kind of gear for any project, because our Los Angeles camera ops know that the better the equipment, the better footage we can capture for our clients. Check out what we love to use at Beverly Boy Productions:     

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Canon EOS 5D

We like to shoot with this Canon camera because it makes it possible for us to capture footage whenever we need to. With customization buttons and settings, we can pre-program it to be ready for the times when we need to stop and shoot. It captures motion well and provides us with clear footage. 

Sony A7S

When the sun goes down or when the lights are low indoors, the Sony A7S comes out to play. It does a great job at capturing images in low-light conditions with little to no noise, thanks to the expansive ISO. We also love the wide dynamic range and the quality on this Sony camera. 

Arri Alexa Mini


When you need a camera to take with you, this Mini camcorder does just as well a job as many of our larger cameras. You don’t have to use a mount and the Mini promises great zooming abilities for specific types of projects. It also captures clear footage, so we know we can depend on it.  

Red Dragon

Our Red Dragon is a favorite for our Los Angeles video camera crews. As big as she is, she’s lightweight and easy to maneuver due to being made from carbon fiber. Not only that, but the footage captured in 6k resolution on the Red Dragon is incredible. Our team loves it and we think you will love the results from it, as well.  

Arri Amira


We don’t think she’s the prettiest but the Amira knows how to work it for the camera, or rather as a camera. This Arri is compatible with several different mounts, has 14+stops of dynamic range, and also includes an ideal exposure index, so we can always get the perfect shots..

Canon EOS C300 MKII

Canon C300

We don’t always want to shoot with mounts, making the Canon C300 a great go-to for our team. It allows us to film in a variety of settings, and also offers personalization options so that our team can shoot with settings that they know and love. With plenty of ports, this camera is also adaptable with other gear, so we can always capture the best footage for your project.  

Sony PMW F55 CineAlta 4k Digital Cinema Camera

Sony F55

The 8.9 megapixels, the dynamic range, and most of all the clear images provided by this Sony are a few reasons why we chose to use this pricey yet reliable camera. It gives us what both our team and clients want: quality in every scene. Low noise images and pristine footage are worth it!  

Black Magic Production 4k Camera

Blackmagic Cinema

The Black Magic Production 4k camera is sweet for filming motion, as it doesn’t wobble and can help us capture clear footage. We don’t like to use the included display much, because it’s hard to see in bright light situations, but other than that, our Los Angeles video camera crews love the global shutter and the final results.
