I usually hate the phrase "boys and their toys" when it comes to videos and articles about guys drooling over their own camera gear. So here's a female videographer/cinematographer's opinion on it!
I'm Angela - I'm a videographer/commercial director and editor in the San Diego area. I've worked here professionally for the last 10 years. I've worked on documentaries, commercials, weddings, live news; and I've worked with DSLRs, Red cameras, Blackmagic pocket and Ursa cameras... And these are the 2 cameras I own and use:
My Favorite DSLR: SONY A7III
Newer models have come out but I still LOVE my Sony A7iii. It's great in low light, takes video and stills; it's lightweight and goes on the zhiyun gimbal and I can shoot forever with it. I initially had 2 of them but sold one to help pay for the Red Komodo (later on in the blog).
Fun Fact: both my Sonys were used. I've never bought them brand new.
My Commercial/Cinema Camera Kit: Red Komodo
I debated between getting the Sony Fx3 and the Red Komodo for a long time and finally pulled the trigger on the Red. I'm hoping companies needing bigger cameras/even higher quality images will hire us and use it!
For the Red Komodo, I've used it for commercials and documentary work. I pulled i out to show off at a small family gathering and was quickly tired of carrying it around like a baby. HA.
Got gear you love? Or accessories you think I should add to my arsenal? Let me know in the comments!
