There are quite a number of cameras on the market these days with exceptional marketing techniques screaming out to us to buy them, it’s sometimes hard to be clear which camera is best suited to the needs of your production. There are new gadgets being released every year with ever increasing technology, quality & tricks – some great, some not. Our video production kit has been acquired after a great amount of research and testing, the camera equipment for hire is maintained and updated frequently to stay ahead of the curve.
The production equipment that I now own in-house gives me (and ultimately, you) the option of creating great content with the best tools that suit YOUR production.
As you can imagine, different equipment is used on different productions. I can tailor make a kit list to suit your production. Get in touch to chat through your next project and to check availability.
Camera Rental Only
We don’t usually hire out the equipment without an operator, this is due to the high risk of damage etc. Although there have been exceptions made to trustworthy and known local industry folks in Adelaide.
