What kind of camera gear do you use for your videos and photos?

February 7, 2018

We use a variety of equipment, depending on the application and the amount of time we have to prepare. Much of our video work is “Run ‘n Gun”, providing us little time to grab and setup the best tools for the job. Our handiest cameras are those we have with us at all times – usually our Apple iPhones. Otherwise, here’s the list of video and audio equipment we’re using:
