My Gear

  • 10 year old Canon HV20 camcorder
  • 9 year old Creative Vado
  • Canon Vixia HF R700 camcorder
  • Nikon d3400 DSLR w/ 18-55 f/3.5-5.6 lens
  • Panasonic Lumix GH5 Mirrorless
  • Panasonic 12-35mm f.28 lens (2017 model)
  • Manfrotto XPRO 500 video monopod
  • Manfrotto 676B monopod

Obviously, the GH5 is the star here.  I’ve only had it a few weeks, and it’s totally changed my perspective on videography.

That’s not to say the others are not useful.  The Canon r700 is tiny, and great to stick on a mic stand and point at the drummer.  The HV20, though it’s 10 years old, has a great sensor, even if importing DV tape is a bit of a pain.

I pretty much blew my budget on the GH5, so I imagine I’ll be using my older gear for multi-camera shoots for a while yet.
