Must Have Gear for Filmmakers & Photographers | 2018 EditionFeb 27, 2020
whatever camera you're using, if it's not this one it's probably not that good, there are only four lights you need to know about to shoot video. If you watch this video, you might want to make movies and videos, but when you look at what people are wearing in the pro league, it can look very intimidating. image possible but with a group that is small and agile and allows us to shoot in an affordable way anyway, I don't know if you're interested in these things or not, but we'll tell you, okay, the first thing we'll talk about is about the camera there are a lot of different cameras out there and honestly at this point they are all pretty good the red camera this is where it all starts why is it the best? i can lose my exposure i can almost get up there do everything wrong except focus let's change all of that after the fact this is usually called raw red has a raw which is compressed it's small and it's very versatile, secondly, it's a bit tall. depth means that when we apply filters to this footage it doesn't destroy it it doesn't tear it apart and it looks gross and blocked out we use this because when we color grade our footage we want it to look good I'm just saying there's a the reason i am not saying the a7 is better is because we are not working to come out after your camera the lenses are the next most important thing and we
havebeen using the sigma art series lenses for a few months almost a year they are the better they are basically if i had to describe them i would describe them as high resolution because they are just so sharp and clear they allow you to max out the resolution of whatever camera you are shooting on these the lenses are great they are the best lenses i
haveever used plan to use them on the future these little things are fine the third most important thing when it comes to your camera we have filters here that are pretty good we have been using the tiffin filters for a long time really very good quality very high quality enough not to make my sigmas look bad put it in so we can hear it, no you can hear it in every hallway video that's on our channel. we've been having a bad time so sad what's that but your headphones are great actually we've been using the pxc 550 wireless noise canceling headphones they're super cool they're super comfortable they're great for planes they're great for stages and They are also very, very good at working in an office setting which helps me get my job done when others are trying to stop me.
I hear half of my hearing through these headphones and the noise cancellation is so good it scares me. the world is so quiet you can hear your own brain promising but faulty camera makers will realize it's the year 2019 and they can put a damn bluetooth chip in their cameras so you can monitor audio without a damn wire between me and my camera multiple bluetooth outputs would be great so everyone can hear it guys thats how i feel on set the wireless audio from the sennheiser g3 system has been great little package here for the back of our boom mic this wireless system we've been using since day one there's just limits to the technology like uh it's a radio it's the year
2018and we're using radios radio transmission sometimes the signal gets a little weak it's a little patchy ok , they fixed it in g4 which is the upgraded version of this we probably should update it as you can tell by the scratches the more scratches you see on the rig that means it's good this table guys it's ok speaking of camera and wireless stuff let's talk about monitoring this here is a small hd monitor on a noodle of a rig ignore the small rig hd makes great monitors the really cool thing about them is you can actually apply filters to your footage file in the modder itself so you can see what it looks like when it's in its final colored state and this is paired with the Nereus HD wireless bridge this allows us to have a wireless signal from the camera to the little HD but you know what you no longer need these days because the little HD now has it built into their monitors if you go to their site you can check why use cables well cables are super reliable just imagine you are shooting something with more than one person imagine a world where you are filming something and someone else has to watch what is being filmed at the same time what about professional cameras?
Come on, you're a pro, but you're on the go. Super designed gopro cameras these days. I hate to say it, one in two breaks, except for sessions. The sessions are the promise. from what the gopro thought the shoot might be gets our sincere endorsements for being the best action camera 100 100 1 hundreds hey how you gonna shoot your scene if it's too dark? There are only four lights you need to know to record videos. only four and we'll tell you what they are right now number one light a light panel this is the best light panel on the market this is the astra light panel it gets very bright allows you to change colors between tungsten and daylight also the the ballast is attached to the light so it's all in one convenient package horrible number two the 120 series from the opening so these LED opening lights are really nice and they do something the Astra doesn't which it's focusing the light they have these fresnel lenses attached to them amazing these things are accurate they give you nice clean clean shadows these are in every set now there are other things we need outside of the lights though one thing is color and these are some little lights really fun these are the deluxe cello lights and these things run on little sony batteries but what's amazing is they can run the full spectrum of colors that moth video we just released i use this light and it's a version from little cousin to almost every shot there is a final light you need to keep in mind i legitimately don't know what light sam is going to point at the fourth and final light fits in the palm of my hand oh great these guys are good these are the aperture m9s they have a little bigger brother but these things i love these things every shot you see on this youtube channel has one of these m9s right next to the lens yeah let's talk batteries with really big batteries, male batteries like this, so we have anton bauer batteries, we have other batteries as well. because these are basically giant power banks that can power anything from a light to your camera to your monitor and anything else and make it last for several hours you can even charge your phone because they have USB ports on them modern technology wow that's cool It's all this
gear, if it has no way to hold it well, we don't just put our cameras on the ground, again we go back to this limited rubber? a sackler tripod i don't need fuss i don't need to i just need an easy efficient system that can work with one person once again just look at the wear and tear on this thing that means its a good product i'm not i'll show you how it works or show it on use but zun cranes don't use gimbals too often anymore but when we do the zhiyun cranes are really nice there are a lot of really horrible handheld gimbals on the market but the zhiyun cranes are not one of them put the camera there you turn it on and it works so the newer ronin-s haven't used it too much it looks great maybe we'll update it we have other gimbals that sit in the closet we go old school here and this is Too big to set up so we left it in the closet but this is where chromical cuts the b-roll for us using this we found the sliders to be for suckers, liebeck jib arm and track. by far the best you can get if you want smooth versatile camera movement or cinematic movements this is better than any gimbal this is better than any tripod by itself this is better than any slider makes all these things obsolete is solid like a rock it's super basic technology and you'll never be let down by computer time let's talk about let's talk about electronics ok so there are computers there are good computers and there are bad computers usually computers you build yourself fall into the good computers and what's even better than self built computers are the ones we have from puget systems they are our most powerful computers in the studio they are the workhorses that do a lot of our editing and rendering and all the processing great the thing is that those guys are really good at kitting them out and they are really good at helping us with little customer support issues when there are issues that are very rare those are really good tell me about the origin i know there is a reason we are working with puget now instead of origin racers
2018here video i would be remiss not to grab the camera and turn these guys around oh hey they film more than us come here you gotta wear this so your mic doesn't break and don't you know a video micro by mounted really cool phantom really small dslr powered sound quality passable cheap 70 bucks this tripod but benro i don't remember the real model but it's a travel one the shitty part about these kind of tripods is you can't level the head you always have to like adjust the leg to get it the best thing about benro is they have solved that problem for every model some kind of micro bowl head on top to adjust it right there now i can its ready for the turf , now it's ready for your living room or kitchen kit, I swear, it's this little fish that Sam printed for me to hold all those memory cards.
Guys the one to go to if you want to get an ultimaker 3 got me into the 3d printing game when before i thought i didn't have time to learn how to make it so unique oh what the sigma lens oh all this all this what you're holding too yeah , we shoot everything on these they are canon 80ds plugins 1080p 60 frames per second now we are shooting 60 frames per second but we edit and shoot at 30 frames per second it doesn't matter if you have the best camera it's important that you know what camera you are using, too you can use that camera longer if you have a battery extender which is great it's a camera oh it's a canon don't wait canons is 300 this is a 70 one from amazon yeah this feels so small now 10 to 20 because wide lenses are awesome and we want fancy shots we use this 18 to 35 1.8 sigma or just grab a macro lens from the case down the hall little lights like you saw above. some kind of stupid rig that changes every couple the one on that cam is so much better you can see it now its amazing ads thats the best cam out there for what for one yes michael type whats your favorite question here the catch and the kit of lenses that might not make sense what i just said is a great choice it's called is technically just a lens case peak designs capture and then lens kit are two separate products but can be used together let's actually take let's do a full turn we'll turn give me the most expensive lens we don't have belts I'm going to squeeze this thousand dollar lens into this I'm going to put it on my belt you're crazy this little button allows me to take it off otherwise I'd be there now lock it securely by turning it it's a hot swap it's a hot swap normally i would have to use this tape i'm not going to use the ready table for the next boss i've never felt like i want to keep swapping glasses more boom i like red bull too awesome um you can have more than one heck huh well yeah we do so i just wanna put this camera away see if it can work come on this is just a if you go to a wedding and look at any of the
