Wedding Videographer Cameras
I use Sony cameras for all my weddings with the A7S Mk 2 being my camera. The A7S Mk2 is awesome in low light and has built in stabilisation which helps me be as discrete as possible and spend most of my time handheld. I have these mounted on my hip on a belt which also helps with this! I also own some A7S Mk1’s which are also amazing in low light and serve as back up cameras and for extra angles when needed.
I have far too many lenses however, each one has it’s own specific use. Most of them are Sony and/or Zeiss lenses which are some of the best lenses you can get. The Zeiss Batis lenses alone are spectacular.
Audio Capture for Wedding Videographers
This is so important! I use a couple of recorders my main ones being the Tascam Dr-10’s. These are tiny little recorders and when paired up with my lapel microphones, which are some of the smallest on the market, it means I can hide them so easily that you soon forget you are wearing them.
Keeping the Camera Steady
I use Manfrotto tripods and a monopod to help keep the camera steady during the ceremony and speeches.
Absolutely love my fresnel lights for the dancefloor, they throw up some lovely lens flare and really help to make the dancing seem even more epic.
Below is my KIT for filming a wedding as I said I don’t use every bit on every wedding but if you are either interested in becoming a wedding videographer or you just want to geek out then feel free to have a look. If you were to click on a link and buy one of the items through my KIT it would also provide me with a little kickback from Amazon which is always appreciated!
