Top 8 cameras Austin video camera crews swear by

In Austin, Texas, our professionals are all about top-quality gear and it shows. Our clients also love when our Austin video camera crews use the best video for our projects. This is why we’ve compiled a top 8 list on the ones that we use for anything and everything. Whether we start filming on South Congress or shooting b-roll outside the Texas State Capitol, our gear and our right lens kit and operator are what will make a difference..  

Here is our list of 8 go-to cameras Austin video camera crews use for best results. From HD 1080p to 4k, our expert team of DP’s and cinematographers know exactly why using the best gear for our Austin camera ops allows us to capture the best footage. It’s what we’re all about; providing amazing results for our clients. Take a look at how we do this:    

Sony A7S

The wide dynamic range on the Sony A7S allows us to capture unique angles while the expansive ISO is what makes it possible for us to be able to film in the dark. In fact, we don’t trust any other camera as much as we do this one for low-light conditions. We want clear footage no matter what, and this A7S makes it possible.

Arri Alexa Mini


This compact camera is easily portable, which is why we like to use it for those filming missions when you need a go-to camera you can rely on. While it’s not as full of features as some of our other ones, it has a good ISO and can capture unique shots in low light conditions, as well as allows for easy maneuvering, no matter what.

Red Dragon

It’s a large camera but that doesn’t mean that the Red Dragon is heavy. Thanks to being made out of carbon fiber material, it’s actually an easy camera to film with. Plus, it gets amazing quality footage thanks to the 6k resolution, which is one reason why we love using this camera.

Sony PMW-F55 CineAlta 4k Camera

Sony F55

It’s fancy enough for Hollywood so it’s fancy enough for us and it shows in the price tag. But, when you get crystal clear images and great dynamic range and an optimal global shutter, it’s worth it. At least, our experienced Austin video camera crews seem to think so.  

Arri Amira


It isn’t one we can depend on for low-light filming, but it does work well in the day time and has plenty of great options for pre-setting. We like that it has ISO ranges that make for clear footage. The slow motion isn’t a bad feature either.  

Canon C300

The Canon C300 has a body that is easy to work with that makes it easy to carry and maneuver. Plus, the customization options make it easy for us to capture our favorite shots with the camera ready to go at any moment. We don’t always like to use heavy equipment, so we appreciate how lightweight this option is.

Canon EOS 5D Mark III

Canon EOS 5D

It’s the option that allows us to play with it before we ever start filming to ensure that it’s always ready to go for any kind of project. From the customizing to AF options, we like to use this one for individual shoots. It’s not our favorite, but it does work well for certain projects and it’s affordable.

Black Magic Production 4k

Blackmagic Cinema

Our Austin video camera crews love a good camera with great GS. The Black Magic Production 4k camera has a global shutter that allows us to get crystal clear footage that isn’t wobbly or shaky at all. It’s a heavy camera but easy to use with various mounts. We use it in a variety of production projects, thanks to its versatility.
