Choosing the best camera and optics for a production is always a challenge. Every budget, storyline and visual-style asks for a different setup. I like to be flexible and prefer rental above owning. This way I can use the camera that suits best for the project.
I’m very impressed by the filmic image quality and workflow of ARRI’s camera’s, these days my favorite production camera will be the Alexa Mini or Amira due to the weight, size and easy (even one-man) operating. The Canon EOS C300 MKII will be my second favorite and fits great in lower production budgets. I do shoot a lot on Sony CineAlta camera’s as well. They are well represented and available in the Netherlands.
