Top 8 Cameras Charlotte Video Camera Crews Swear By
In Charlotte, North Carolina there are various cameras that our team can depend on for quality footage. We know that our Charlotte video camera crews can capture amazing footage for your project, whether filming near the NASCAR Hall of Fame, or shooting b-roll outside the U.S. National Whitewater Center. Our cameras along with the best right lens kit and operator are what is needed for a successful project.
Below we have a list of the 8 professional cameras used by Charlotte Video Camera Crews. From shooting in HD 1080p to 4K, our talented DP’s and cinematographers know which options are best for the job, so that our Charlotte camera ops have complete control over every project. When we can do our job right, we’re able to provide our clients with the best video production results. Here’s some of our favorite gear:
The Arri Alexa Mini is one of our favorites for several reasons. It has a compact size that makes it very easy to film anywhere and everywhere. It has a viewfinder that allows us to have better control while filming and the optimal zoom makes it very easy to capture footage, no matter where we want to film.
The Sony A7S is a favorite of our Charlotte video camera crews because it allows us to effectively capture footage in low-light conditions. Not only can we actually capture footage in the dark, but it provides quality footage that is clear as can be. Plus, the camera itself is lightweight and easy to use, so what’s not to love?
The 6k resolution, the dynamic range that allows for great angles during filming, and it’s carbon fiber material make for a reliable piece of gear. These are only a few reasons why we won’t leave home without the Red Dragon. It is one of the cameras that we depend on the most.
It’s bulky and ugly, like something that belongs with a production team back in the 80s, but it’s technology is a must have for us. We like to customize settings on our cameras for a number of reasons, and this one makes it easy. The display also helps us to see what’s going on as we film and we like that we have a viewfinder as an option as well.
It is pricey but it offers top-notch quality so our team certainly thinks that an investment like this is worth it. After all it has great stops for dynamic range, it’s sensitive and has low noise, and we really can get quality footage with it that is clear and concise. If the cinematographers of Hollywood like it, so do we.
We aren’t afraid of customizing a camera. While it may seem time consuming for some cameramen, it isn’t for ours. We have a team who likes to play, so the fact that there are plenty of customizable buttons, as well as ports to hook the C300 up to all kinds of equipment, makes us love it. Plus, it has a slow motion feature that our camera crew can’t get enough of.
We really like the global shutter on the Black Magic Production 4k camera. It allows us to get all kinds of footage without the wobbly side effect that happens with some cameras. It doesn’t bend our footage but rather allows us to film ideal footage in a variety of conditions. We don’t like to use it in low-light but other than that, we count on it for a lot of projects.
When it comes to environment shooting or individual shots, this Canon excels. Plus, it allows our innovative crew to play with the pre-settings to get it exactly the way that we want it to be. Our Charlotte video camera crews use this one often for a variety of projects.
