What camera gear do we use to shoot our regular videos? Check out what we all use and what we use each specific camera system for.
Now this video is shot on my Samsung Note 10 Plus. This phone has a fantastic camera for not only pictures but also takes great quality video as well. We do a combination of Live videos but daily we are shooting them on our Instagram page. Be sure to follow us on IG.
Since this video was shot we have even upgraded and purchased a new cell phone stabilizer. This tool is the DJI Osmo 4. This device allows us to have it hold our phone and stabilizes the footage. This makes it much more smooth, so no more wobbly footage shot from us just holding our cell phone. Also you won’t have any of the audio issues, like before. Specifically with us moving our hand around on the microphone area and causing all of the annoying noises and muffling.

Non Live Videos
The rest of our non Live videos will now be shot on the Canon EOS R. This camera is fitted with the RF 15-35mm L series Lens. This camera is defiantly overkill to some for what we are trying to show, but we believe in having the best tools to do the best possible job and this only helps. Its built in lens image stabilizing helps with shooting footage on vehicles when we have to use the camera in our hands. As of now we do not currently own a stabilizer that will fit this camera system. We do have one but it works great on our other smaller Cannon m50 camera. The m50 is a great camera for people wanting to up their video game in our opinions but not needed by any means. Most people in our industry strictly use their phone cameras and it defiantly can make things much more simple.
With our technician Jack always loving to nerd out the way he does this was not enough and he opted to upgrade our systems to provide better content. With upgrading equipment also comes upgrading software and the time spent in the editing department though.
Hyper lapse and Time lapse Videos
If you’re not familiar with these video styles, what this is is basically a sped up version of videos where you see us working super fast. Nothing is in slow motion its all super sped up footage. A time lapse is basically individual photos taken to make a sped up video clip. A hyper lapse is something Go Pro’s can do to make the footage basically flow together better than a time lapse. For this footage style we use the Go Pro Hero 7 Black. Now our phone cameras, canon cameras will do time lapse footage but we prefer the hyper lapse look so we tend to stick with that. Plus the go pro being as small as it is and super simple. Simply turn it on and hit record. It really streamlines this process and works best for us for this.
For microphones we heavily favor the Rode mic series. Most of the time we use the Rode Wireless Go Mic on our Cannon EOS R. For other styles of shooting where a microphone on just one person isn’t enough we use the Rode NTG shotgun style microphone. This microphone allows us to pick up multiple people and sounds. This is best for interviews and some vehicle walk arounds.
