How big of a part of your studio is the cameras you use? Well, that’s a loaded question, because there are MANY great options from several different brands. But after using dozens of those brands for nearly 20 years, the following recommendations come from years in the trenches, comparing dozens of video cameras in REAL life video production, including the infamous Red cinema cameras, as well as Sony, Panasonic, Nikon, DJI, Black Magic and many more.

We use Canon C300mIII 4K and 10-Bit Canon R8 4K Full-Frame Mirrorless Cameras that consistently capture video production in cinematic quality. We recommend the following lenses to be paired with these cameras: Canon 24-105, Canon 50mm, Canon 85mm, two of the Canon Variable ND filter adapters so you can adjust exposure without sacrificing beautiful bokeh by closing the aperture of your camera to far.

And here are must-have accessories (like constant power for your cameras!) to keep your production workflow running smooth: Kimaru AC Power for R8, SanDisk 256gb Card, 50′ HDMI cable, 30′ HDMI cable, 4-channel HDMI Splitter, 3 of these HDMI adapters for the R8 cameras, monitor arm, power strip, and 32″ monitor.

And remember, this is just one part of our full guide to building the perfect film studio. We also have in depth blogs and articles on studio cameras, studio lighting, studio backdrops, walls and framing for your future studio, studio rigging, professional studio audio as well as a list of tools that you will need to build your first studio.
