Canon EOS C300 Camera Package

by Mike Gluckman

The canon EOS C300 camera makes great images. We've traveled half way around the world with this camera and it has continued to be a real workhorse. Everyone is looking for the beautiful shallow depth of field (or bokeh) achieved with DSLR cameras but don't want to deal with the issues of recording audio to a different device. The C300 has professional built-in audio recording capabilities.

We've put together a complete package including cage, matte box, external monitor, follow focus, gold mount battery adapter and more. 

Firewire 800 Card Reader

With our Canon C300, 5D and 7D cameras, this firewire 800 card reader is great for fast downloading. On a quick non-scientific test, it is about 3 to 5 times faster than a USB 2 card reader. Nice at lunch or the end of the day to be able download that much quicker.

Arri M18

by Mike Gluckman

We recently purchased two Arri M18 HMI Pars. These are the biggest HMI lights you can plug into a 20 amp household circuit. The Arri M18s put out as much light as a 4K HMI but draw less power than a 2k tungsten unit. And with the new technology, there is no longer any need to change lenses. This unit spots and floods like an open faced light.

Blue Plate Special

by Mike Gluckman

Dolly sliders are all the rage right now. Finding the right dolly for the right camera can be a challenge. One day you are shooting with the 5D, the next it's a full on package with long zoom and all the accessories. We found a slider that works for just about any camera. It's called the Blue Plate Special.

It rides on standard 1.25" speed rail. We use 4' pipes but it can be expanded to any size up to 20'. Probably the wrong tool if you need a 20' move, but it is possible. Can mount directly to head with Mitchell mount or 100mm ball adapter.
