Cameras and stuff

This is the gear I have, not in my bag as it would one hell of a bag.

Pentax 645z

Great camera, massive sensor and good glass. I have a 55mm and 75mm lens and that is enough. I love the 4:3 format, always have. Always in manual with white balance set, not necessary in RAW but a habit.

Atomos Shogun Inferno

Atomos Shogun Inferno 7.1 inch AtomHDR 1500nit Field Monitor with 4k/HD 10 bit recording and Pro res Raw. Teamed up with the Eva 1 it is the best combination I have used in most situations especially when shooting raw in high contrast situations.

Housing a micro four thirds 4K image sensor capable of outputting 4K 60p video in 4:2:2 10 bit to an external recorder, this is a near perfect ‘Run and Gun’ set up. I use this along with the Atomos Ninja V as both a screen and external recorder.

Atomos Ninja V Field Monitor and recorder with 4k/HD 10 bit recording. Teamed up with the Panasonic GH5 and the Zhiyun Weebil Lab Gimbal it is a great ‘Run and Gun set up and is a good colour match for the Eva 1 when graded in FCPX.

Zhiyun Weebil Lab Gimbal

This very small and light weight gimbal from Zhiyun is the base for my ‘Run and Gun’ setup. Combined with the GH5, Ninja V and the Rode video mic it is near perfect. The handle configuration is great for low shots and steady two handed operation.

Housing a high-resolution 5.7K image sensor capable of rendering smooth 4K images inside a compact body, I use this along with the Atomos Shogun Inferno to capture Pro res Raw. This codec gives flexibility in high contract situations with its 14 stops of dynamic range.

DJI osmo

The DJI Osmo is used for the on the move video and is paired with a Rode video mic. Battery use can be a problem on long days so I have 5 spares plus a charging pack attached to the frame for the smart phone screen. I have a dedicated phone that is used for nothing else.
