What Equipment do I use? And Why?
My Main Camera is the Sony a6300 which I still really like. It offers me to record in 1080p/120fps and 4k/30pfs. The low-light performance could be better, but for my uses it performs really good. Especially in combination with my main-lens, the Sony 18 – 105mm f/4.0 OSS G.
I’m filming my Videos mostly in the Sun, so a Monitor is necessary. Based on a recommendation from a friend, I bought the Lilliput a7s, which I am also very happy with, as I have already mentioned on my About page.
For camera movements I use the Zhiyun Crane Plus Gimbal. I thought about buying the Crane 2 for a long time, but the Crane Plus was more suitable for the weight of my camera. It was also a lot cheaper. In Addition to that, I also got the neewer Dual Handle which works very well and is incredibly light. But the complete setup with camera, gimbal, dual handle and monitor becomes very heavy after only a few minutes. That’s why I bought iFlight universal Gimbal Stand, because I think the DJI Stand is overpriced.
Since I don’t always film with the gimbal or dual handle, I wanted to be able to attach the monitor to the camera itself. Since I didn’t want to break the flash shoe (the monitor is very heavy) I have decided to use a Smallrig Cage. So I could attach the monitor directly to the camera using a monitor mount.
Now to the things I use for photography.
My tripod is the Cullman Alpha 2500, which I mainly use for long exposures, that I take with a Gobe ND1000 72mm in a lot of light. My last purchase was the Tarion M-02, my camera backpack. I’ve only had it recently, but with so much equipment it’s an important helper.
So in conclusion this is my current equipment:
- Sony a6300
- Sony 18 – 105mm f/4.0 OSS G
- Smallrig Cage a6000-a6400
- Gobe ND1000 72mm ND-Filter
- Zhiyun Crane Plus Gimbal
- Neewer Crane Plus Dual Handle
- Lilliput a7s 4k Montior
- Cullman Alpha 2500
- Tarion M-02 Camera backpack
- iFlight Aluminium Gimbal Stand
