The latest trend is for large sensor video cameras, but sometimes a traditional video camera is still the best choice depending on the scope of your project. We have both types of cameras in our inventory and we can also provide you with any camera package, whether we own them or rent them, to provide you exactly what your requirements demand.
If you would like to emulate a motion picture look to your production, then a large sensor camera is the best choice for their blurry backgrounds, shallow focus, and fast speeds. However, there are limitations due to the shallow focus. The camera crew may require an additional focus-puller and additional time to set up the scene and rehearsals to keep it all in focus. The lenses are interchangeable, but require more time to switch out, and additional costs to carry a full range of lenses compared to an all-in-one motorized zoom.
If you are doing run and gun, fast action, or have a limited crew then you generally need a traditional style video camera with its long motorized zoom and deep focus. A traditional video camera has the added benefit of one motorized zoom lens for wide and close-up shots. The smaller chip size of traditional video cameras generally allows much deeper focus where time and crew isn’t available or an option.
