Sometimes little things make a big difference when you’re shooting on location or in studio. That’s what I’ve found with the three tools for filmmakers we discuss here: Leatherman tool, Rabbit Camera Key, and Stand Daddy stabilizers for your light stands and tripod.
Gear used to record and covered in this episode:
Leatherman Wingman Multi-tool
Leatherman Sheath (Be the ninja-nerd on set who can fix anything because your multi-tool is always with you)
Rabbit Key (Camera Key - never struggle to attach or detach a quick release plate or camera cage again)
Stand Daddy Tripod/Light Stand Stabilizer System - For a limited time, exclusive discount for our little community: use coupon code 15MORE to receive 15% off
Panasonic GH5 Camera
Atomos Ninja Inferno HDMI Recorder (simplifies exposing for HDR/LOG and records amazing 4:2:2 10-bit footage from GH4 or GH5)
Sound Devices MixPre-6 Audio Recorder & Mixer
DPA 4017b Shotgun Microphone (my pro-level outdoor mic)
Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 Lens (1st Generation)
