Sony PXW-FS7 4K 180fps
I own a PXW-FS7 XDCAM camera, ergonomic grip design for easy handling and operability, making it ideal for one-man operation in situations where the extraordinary flexibility of its α Mount lens system and compatible interchangeable lenses can be used to maximum advantage. The PXW-FS7 features a 4K Super 35mm Exmor CMOS sensor and support for shooting in 60p or Full HD at high frame rates up to 180 fps (frames per second). Selectable recording formats include XAVC, which supports 4K* 60p, Full HD 60p even in 4:2:2 10-bit recording, as well as the common MPEG-2 HD 422 format used by many broadcast stations around the world. Attach an optional Extension Unit (XDCA-FS7) to open up the possibilities of multi-camera shooting and ProRes 422 encoding. Connect an HXR-IFR5 interface and AXS-R5 recorder to support parallel recording and 4K/2K RAW recordings up to 240fps in 2K.
I own a fully fluid head carbon fibre tripod along with a slider and three-meter jib, in addition, I have a pole cam that reaches around 4 meters and it has a
3 axes gimbal for smooth shots.
GLIDECAM is a highly developed and meticulously engineered camera stabilisation system. Its ability to shoot smooth imagery is extraordinary.
It outperforms all of the competition in its class.
With the Glidecam, I'm able to acquire the type of smooth footage.
Other Cameras and Visual Cueing
Teleprompter - the perfect tool for pieces to camera while sticking to the script whilst looking professional and focused. Because the speaker does not need to look down to consult written notes, he appears to have memorised the speech or to be speaking spontaneously, looking directly into the camera lens.
I also have two other broadcast 4k/HD cameras that I use for multi-camera shoots.
I have several GoPro's with majority all mounts and accessories including sucker cups, hat and chest mounts for POV shooting.
The broader the light source, the softer the light. The narrower the source, the harder the light. A broad light source lessens shadows, reduces contrast, suppresses texture. A narrow light source does the opposite. This is because, with a broad source, light rays hit your subject from more directions, which tends to fill in shadows and give more even illumination to the scene.
I have a large selection of different lighting equipment to suit the application and environments.
Time-lapse photography is a technique whereby the frequency at which film frames are captured (the frame rate) is much lower than that used to view the sequence. When played at normal speed, time appears to be moving faster and thus lapsing. For example, an image of a scene may be captured once every second, then played back at 30 frames per second; the result is an apparent 30 times speed increase.
Time-lapse photography can be considered the opposite of high-speed photography or slow motion.Processes that would normally appear subtle to the human eye, e.g. the motion of the sun and stars in the sky, become very pronounced. Time-lapse is the extreme version of the cinematography technique of undercranking, and can be confused with stop motion animation.
