Its often the camera that people start their questions about. But I believe lenses are equaly important (if not more!) to get the shot to look the way I want it to. The list below will show my love for lenses, both new and 30-70 year old vintage glass.
To start with the camera, I’m filming with the Sony Venice since its release and still love this camera to the present day. But I’ve owned and used many other cameras.
I’ve always been pushing the limits of my equipment and still searching for new equipment that gives us the ability to show things that we haven’t seen before.
Often overlooked is the advantage of knowing my own kit thoroughly and how I easily adjust things with all bits and pieces I have gathered in my set. If you like, please ask me for a detailed equipment list for what kind of equipment I can bring to your production.
I mostly use Vocas accessoires and supports for these cameras.
“They might say I’m crazy owning so much lenses. I’m not crazy, everyone else is!”
Although the Sony Venice is my current workhorse I have much experience filming with Reds, Arri’s, Sony FX9/F55, or older like the Sony F800 and many others.
I believe no project is the same and every project has its own needs. I see a great joy in selecting the right equipment for the right job. I strongly advice producers to allow me or other camerapersons to involve us in these choice as soon as possible.
Even though I own a lot of equipment, over the years I’ve tried to make equipment choices based upon the needs of the projects, not on my own equipment list.
