We use the right equipment for the job. Most of the time we use DSLRs for video, but they have limitations that put them at a disadvantage in certain situations. For instance, “run-and-gun” events (ones that have a lot of movement or scene changes) are best covered with dedicated video cameras.
Our cameras have the latest in low light technology, so we rarely need to set up additional, distracting lighting.
We also use (but not over-use) Glidecams and sliders. We are covering your event – not making a promotional video for Glidecams and sliders.
