Over the Holiday break Biscardi Creative Media began upgrading our camera and field video production packages to bring more cinematic capabilities in house. Paramount to this was to add a set of cinema quality prime lenses. While most people tend to focus their attention on the camera, it’s the lens or “glass” that really brings an image to life. We added a set of Rokinon Full Frame Cinema T1.5 Prime Lenses (24mm, 35mm and 85mm) and a Sigma 24-105mm “Art” lens. All of these lenses are Canon EF mount making them versatile across many different camera types including our Blackmagic 4k Cinema Camera. This extremely versatile camera can be used to create anything from a corporate story to feature film with the ability to shoot in 4k RAW for the ultimate in image quality.
We then added the Panasonic GH4 Lumix camera which brings HD and full 4k functionality to small form, handheld cameras. We’ve tested the GH4 extensively with our lifestyle programming production for Contemporary Living Network and love that we can produce gorgeous UHD cinematic imagery in a very unobtrusive way. We’ve been able to shoot in a variety of situations without attracting undue attention or interfering with the normal operations of retail and commercial spaces.
Of course we still have our Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera for a third HD camera. This extremely versatile little camera can literally fit in a pocket and we currently have it fitted with vintage Canon FD lenses.
For field recording we added a new Sennheiser wireless microphone pack along with a Countryman Isomax microphone bringing the flexibility of wireless movement and the high quality of Countryman sound together. We’ve used Countryman mics for years now and love their rich, full bodied sound.
On the grip side of things, we’ve added a new floating stand for our FSI field monitor and will be upgrading the lighting package as well. We’ve come a long way from our Post Production roots. Give us a shout for more details on the gear and our current rates. 770.271.3427
