We use a selection of Canon Gear mainly the 8oD’sand x2 EOS 8oD's, 7D, Go Pro’s 5 & 6 (lots), primarily because of their light weight and fantastic images in low light situations, great all rounder camera especially in HD filming projects the 80D has time saving articulating viewfinder with manual sound controls (A+ in my book).
Lenses: depending on the type of shoot a range of lenses may be drawn upon, prime lens 24mm, 40mm, 50mm 1.4, 18mm through to 300mm L series lenses used, extreme wide angles also used to capture scene and crowds, lastly Cine lenses are also used for durability and clarity. Gel filters used to create glamour and artistic perspectives, whether it be wedding, portrait or boudoir.
This is the tool I have started using to document my first person perspectives, whether offsite, filming whilst driving to locations etc... during the filming of what I'm shooting on my stills cameras. It certainly does give me a great perspective on putting the viewer right there with me on the shoot.
The quality of this small camera is amazing and it's robust! Hooks directly onto the the touring 4x4 when filming in country/ events.
