A few months ago I switched my entire camera system from Canon to Sony. I used to shoot on a Canon 5D Mark III and had a lot of Canon L lenses. But then slowly, surely, my Canon glass was falling apart. I also was unhappy with the way that Canon treated their DSLR line for filmmakers. They wanted us to buy the bigger cameras but I love shooting on small cameras and being unobtrusive.
Are you a filmmaker who travels occasionally or even a lot? Do you have to fly around doing video production for your clients or your production company? One of the challenges I face as a DP and filmmaker is that I am dependent on the gear that is available at the distant location that I travel to. Often my preferred gear like camera sliders and cranes aren’t available on the road, or are too expensive to rent for several days of shooting.
Beside all that, I like to use my own gear because I know it in and out. I know what professional results I can expect with it. I don’t want to compromise a project just because I might not have my, undamaged, familiar and high quality gear at the remote location.
What if you could fly around and bring a 3-point interview lighting kit, stands, audio gear, tripod, camera slider, camera crane, reflector, extension cords, and much more, and pack it all up in one suitcase?
I think that, as filmmakers and video pros, we need to stay super-healthy and fit, right? We maneuver cameras, run around on set, and yell at actors. We need a lot of focus when we have to edit our shows. But sitting all day long will rapidly deteriorate our bodies. Richard Branson says our wealth deteriorates with our health.
Today I want to show you an amazing solution that not only saves you lots of money, but also keeps you fit and healthy.
I would go even so far as to say that it cuts out my extra time that I would have had to spend in the gym.
