Small 4k go pro camera's are a great tool for special point of view shots, they can be easily attached to bikes, cars, skateboards and surfboards, to name a few. During our shoot in Lapland we even attached them to reindeer! These camera's are very reliable with great quality. Can be used with the pictured steadycam. Ask for our weekly hiring specials.
We have the latest version of the Ronin M. This device is great for shooting music video's, as an alternative for dolly shots. The Canon C100 that we have available fits perfectly on the Ronin M. De c100 has autofocus and auto exposure, so it's a good match with the Ronin M, when you are working with a small crew. It also works with smaller DLSR camera's, such as the Canon 70D which we have available. The 70D also has dual pixel which provides a smooth continuous autofocus. In addition is has face tracking and "tap on the touchscreen" to focus (the c100 lacks these 2 features). The Ronin M comes with 2 batteries.
Our Mavic Air shoots in 4K or full HD, with ND filters, and is equipped with gimbals for those smooth steady shots in the air. Normally we use this drone for film or TV shoots, but there is more! It's a great tool for real estate agents to show their properties from the friendly skies. Prospective buyers can get a great view of the house, the lay out of the garden, the condition of the roof, etcetera. Google earth can't give you these detailed images in HD or 4K! Combine this with footage of one of our other camera's and the right choice of music and you get a great presentation video. An excellent and professional way to showcase the property in a way never seen before! We have our own experienced drone operators who only fly out when the weather conditions are optimal. Safety is always first! The Mavic Air can be connected to a smartphone (Iphone or Android) or tablet to view live footage from the drone.
Slider for dolly like shots. You can easily use this with any smaller videocamera or DSLR. Place in on the ground, a table or on a tripod.

Below left: our lightweight booms can be used with our Senheisser microphone. Perfect for on location film shoots or TV shoots. Comes with long XLR cable or use it wireless. Can be rented with boom operator.
Below right: it's amazing what this great light reflector can do for your shoot, especially with the California sun. Very practical for outdoor shoots where you cannot bring a lot of artificial light. Can be used for scenes with 1 or 2 actors but also for on camera presentations for TV programs.
Personally, we like to shoot handheld, especially with the optical steadyshots on our camera's and the option of using a small glidecam. But for some shoots you just can't do without this lighweight high quality Sachtler tripod. Can be used with all of our camera's and any DSLR. So just in case: we always take it with us on our shoots.
The Tascam DR-60D MK!! is a mixer and 4 track audiorecorder in one device. It lets you record the sound mix on location directly in your camera via Line out or Camera in (XLR or minijack), while at the same time recording a back up in the Tascam using SD cards. You can attach 3 sound sources, for example 2 lavaliers an 1 boom mic and mix it down to 1 or 2 seperate channels for output to the camera. The Tascam will record the signal to 3 seperate tracks (or 4 if you use dual recording on 1 source. Dual recording lets you record the same sound at a lower level as a safety track). Perfect choice for DSLR's that have limited sound options, or any ENG package.
Read the reviews online and you know why people choose this smart little device. Comes with all the cable you may need (XLR, minijack), a 32 GB San disk SD card, rechargable batteries and a seperate USB powered battery pack for all day recording.
