Sony has improved on the original by adding two important features. The most notable is an Electronic Vari ND Filter which is an LCD layer placed between the sensor and the lens-mount. The strength of the filter can be assigned to presets or dialled in via the “Variable” wheel on the side of the camera. This allows you to keep the same aesthetics while changing the amount of light that hits the sensor during a scene.
Sony has also added an E-Mount Lever Lock – A New Locking Mechanism. The E-Mount is a great lens mount. However, it was made for stills photography lenses, and lacks stability and a rotation-less locking mechanism. Sony addressed both issues with the new E-Mount Lever Lock.

At the heart of the camera is a 20.3MP Digital Live MOS sensor and a newly developed Venus Engine processor, which both offer dramatically improved processing times over its predecessor. This enables the ability to record 4K video at up to 60 fps, 10-bit 4:2:2 internal recording with select settings, Full HD video at up to 180 fps, 12 fps continuous shooting, and sensitivities up to ISO 25600. Also, the camera features built-in 5-axis sensor stabilization, which can work with certain lenses to activate Dual I.S. 2 for highly effective shake correction that can compensate for up to 5 stops of shutter speed. Other improvements include a speedier and more accurate Advanced DFD autofocus system that can lock on in just 0.05 seconds, as well as 6K PHOTO at 30 fps and 4K PHOTO at up to 60 fps.
This tiny micro 4/3 raw camera is popular for those looking for a hidden camera with cinema class image quality. This camera shoots to an SD card and runs on a Canon LP-E6 (5D/7D) battery. It is also capable of shooting ProRes, or the image can be recorded externally over HDMI. The expansion port allows for external power, timecode, LANC, and radio control for use on a drone. The camera features a built in microphone, but features a 3.5mm microphone jack so you can run a microphone or hop directly into the camera.
The marquee features of Go Pro's new camera are the fully waterproof camera body, voice control, a built in rear touchscreen, and built in distortion correction.

This tiny little micro 4/3 camera is perfect as a high quality hidden camera. It leaves the recording to an external recorder to save on space and weight, while not compromising on image quality. Powered by a Canon LP E-6 battery or external power, this card records 4K UHD over HDMI or DIN connector to a Shogun, Odyssey 7Q or similar external recorder. Its Micro 4/3 mount allows use of tiny lenses, but is adaptable to almost any lens imaginable.
This version of the Osmo features an upgraded camera capable of DCI 4K video, 16 MP stills, over 12 stops of dynamic range, and a micro 4/3 interchangeable lens mount.

The Osmo is a handheld 4K camera built onto a single handle 3-axis gimbal stabilizer. It uses the same camera from the DJI inspire 1 drone, which is capable of 4K video at 24 fps or 120 fps at FullHD. It also takes 12mp JPEG or DNG RAW stills. The camera and gimbal are powered by proprietary rechargeable lithium battery packs. The handle has camera control buttons including pan and tilt and a wifi device can be used to monitor the shot and update settings via the DJI GO app. The footage is shot to a microSD card which is inserted into the side of the camera.
Sony's flagship mirrorless still camera is also a capable video camera, capable of 4K UHD with S-log2 gamma, continuous autofocus (with compatible lenses), and the versatile sony E-mount. As a stills camera there are few, if any, mirrorless cameras that can match its specs at 42 megapixels, 5 axis internal image stabilization and 5 fps continuous shooting.
The Canon EOS 5D Mark IV is the latest version of the most popular DSLR we have ever rented. Compared to the Mark III, it has 8 more megapixels, 1 more fps continuous shooting, a whole new sensor with extended dynamic range, built in Wifi and GPS, a touch screen display, and now supports 4K video recording. This camera can shoot 60fps at Full HD compared to its predecessor which shot 60fps at 720p. It also introduces 120fps recording at 720p.
The FS5 is an update to the extremely popular FS700, now a perfect b camera to the popular FS7. Like the FS700, the FS5 offers extremely high frame rates at an extremely budget friendly price point.

The camera can also shoot proxy files to an SD card and has Canon's new Canon Log 3 color science. Canon claims this camera has 15 stops of Dynamic Range, 3 stops greater than its predecessor.
With internal 4K recording up to 30 frames per second and frame rates up to 120 at full HD at 60mb/sec, this is the new gold standard for action cameras. The Hero4 Black features a processor twice as fast as its predecessor which also allows for improved image quality and higher megapixel stills. Built in Wifi and Bluetooth allow for live remote monitoring and control across all resolutions and frame rates. The new Nightlapse mode allows you to take significantly improved low light photos and time lapses. The GoPro's compact form factor allows you to capture angles otherwise unsafe or impossible with a traditional camera.
The RED EPIC with Dragon sensor can capture 6K images which is 9X the size of HD. The 16.5 stops of latitude and resolution offer extraordinary image quality. The EPIC is compatible with PL, Canon, Nikon and Leica lenses. It is capable of 100 fps at 6K, 150 fps at 4K, and 300 fps at 2K. With the PL motion mount the EPIC features a global shutter and internal NDs. All of these attributes allow for reframing options, image stabilization in post and impressive low light performance. With its compact size, the EPIC is ideal for use with our 3-axis MoVI and Ronin image stabilization units.
The Canon EOS 7D and 5D MarkII started a video revolution. The 7D was the principal camera for Lena Dunham's acclaimed first feature, Tiny Furniture and was used by Alex Buono for SNL.
It features an 18.0 Megapixel APS-C size CMOS sensor capturing images at up to ISO 12800 and speeds of up to 8.0 fps. The EOS 7D has an all cross-type 19-point AF system and captures Full HD video at 30p (29.97 fps), 24p (23.976 fps) and 25p with manual exposure during video shooting and ISO speed selection.
It is capable of a maximum burst rate (130* for JPEG Large/Fine and 25* RAW images) for continuous shooting, definable maximum limit for ISO Auto, manual audio level, in-camera RAW image processing and JPEG image resizing.
The Canon EOS 5D Mark II was introduced with little fanfare until Vincent Laforet shot the video short, Reverie. Seemingly overnight, filmmakers saw the potential of the full-frame DSLR for video image capture. We were the first rental house in NYC to offer the 5D for videography. We saw our units used on SNL, numerous commercials, music videos, documentaries and independent projects.
The 5D has a 21.1-megapixel full-frame CMOS sensor with DIGIC 4 Image Processor, an ISO Range of 100-6400 (expandable to ISO L: 50, H1: 12800 and H2: 25600), plus Auto Lighting Optimizer and Peripheral Illumination Correction.

A newly designed 22.3 Megapixel full-frame Canon CMOS sensor, Canon DIGIC 5+ Image Processor, and shooting performance up to 6.0 fps provide exceptional clarity and sharpness, even when capturing rapidly-unfolding scenes. Additional technological advancements include High Dynamic Range (HDR) and Multiple Exposure mode-all.
The MarkIII can export clean, uncompressed HDMI output to an external recorder, while still being able to record to internal CF or SD cards and monitor the video on the rear LCD display.
