Tographer Tuesday: Equipment Series-Best Professional Equipment (Videography)

I have always been a photographer first and then a videographer second and I have learned a lot along the way. Videography is very different because you have to think about light, motion, sound,

and angles.


When I walk into a wedding doing videography I know immediately I want lots of cameras and lots of microphone options, and the options to move around. Videography though uses lots of equipment so here is the listing of items I use when doing videography:

Canon 5D Mark IV

Canon 80D (great for video)

Backup Camera-Canon 5D Mark III

Backup Camera-Canon 6D

4 Go Pros

2 Rode Shotgun Microphones

1 Rode Lapel Microphone and Receiver

1 Zoom Recorder (Sound only)

3 LED lights (attach to top of camera)

1 big LED light to put on a stand if allowed by wedding

DJI Ronin-S Camera Stabilizer

3 Sunpak Tripod/Monopod

3 Tripod wheel sets

DJI Osmo

DJI Mavic Mini drone

Canon Lens (35mm, 50mm, 85mm, 24-70mm, 70-200mm, and 50mm macro)

Light stand

Lots of memory cards

Lots of batteries to run everything above. For AA or AAA batteries I only use rechargeable types.
