I’ve experienced a lot of equipment since I started working in video production. From handycam, semi-pro video camera, professional video camera, two DSLR video cameras and now a mirrorless DSLR with external recorder… Every equipment has its own pros and cons. Some are easy to use for some projects and others might get you killed trying. The only thing in common is, that they all do video.
There was one thing I probably never mentioned about my change in video production gear three years ago. Selling my two cameras Sony Z1 and Canon HG10, moving to Canon 550D, Canon 5D Mark III and now the Sony A7s with Atomos Shogun. Two things really inspires me with DSLR’s…. candid images and depth of field. Two things I’ve never got with those two cameras and even today many higher budget video cameras can’t achieve. And if they can, they are too big to work daily on run and gun shooting sets.
Just before new year I talked about my next video camera and put some info of my dream equipment. Well, there won’t be anything like that in near future, so I had to make a choice between two candidates. To choose a Panasonic Lumix GH4 or Sony A7s with Atomos Shogun. I did the second one, even if I’m not very pleased with attaching Shogun on A7s on every gun&run shooting I make. But the fullframe, great quality of 4K prores and low light capabilities sold me.
