Top 8 cameras New Orleans Video Camera Crews Swear By
In New Orleans, Louisiana, we have a lot of camera gear that we like to use. It’s because we know we can provide better quality footage for our clients, so below you’ll find our favorite options that our New Orleans video camera crews depend on. Whether we’re filming your project at the the famous French Quarter or shooting b-roll at Bourbon Street, our favorite cameras, along with the right lens kit and operator, are going to make your project a success.
Below is our list of the 8 best New Orleans video camera crews shoot with. From HD 1080p to 4k, we have a great team of DP’s and cinematographers that know what they love to use for successful projects. The better the equipment the better quality our Chicago camera ops will be able to get with the control they have. This means that you’ll get more professional footage and optimal quality in your project’s shoots. Here are our top favorites:
We like to shoot whenever we can and the Canon EOS 5D Mark III makes it possible to be ready at any moment. This is because it has plenty of customization and personalization buttons and settings. Plus, it can capture movement very well, which is a must for many of our shoots. Sure it takes time to set up our favorite pre-set programs, but once we have it down it’s always prepared for action.
We know where to turn when the sun goes down and that’s to our Sony A7S. Always ready for some low-light conditions, this baby is our must-have when the lighting is dim. From the expansive ISO to the wide dynamic range, there are many features that the A7S boasts of that we can’t do without.
Some projects call for big cameras, we admit it. But, not all of them. When it’s a shoot that we want to do right away without mounts, this mini camera comes in handy thanks to its compact size yet big personality. A great zoom and clear images make this one of our favorites…ever!
Our Red Dragon will always be one that our New Orleans video camera crews will love. It’s impressive, because while it’s large and full of great features, it’s light weight, thanks to the carbon fiber material it’s made from. Also, the ability to shoot in 6k is a big yes on the Red Dragon.
We didn’t pick her because she’s good looking. Her personality makes up for it because Arri has the ability to be used with a variety of mounts, has great exposure index, and the amount of stops gives it a dynamic range! 14+ of them made us say yes to this option that also provides crazy amounts of customization opportunities.
We like lightweight because we don’t have to worry about mounts. So, this Canon C300 certainly helps us to film more effectively in certain settings. With plenty of personalization options for this camera, as well as the ability to connect it to a broad range of equipment, with ports for SD cards, SDI and HDMI, we wouldn’t be seen without this camera.
We really like to use this beauty for projects that call for “Hollywood” style shoots. It’s able to capture pristine footage and images with low noise, and it has the dynamic range we seek in high-end cameras like this one. Pricey, but worth it because we get exactly what we paid for: quality!
The Black Magic Production is really good when capturing footage that follows movements. It doesn’t wobble or shake, so we can provide you with stable and clear images and footage for your project. Our New Orleans video camera crews aren’t crazy about the display that is a bit too shiny for our preferences, but we love almost everything else on this option.
