Cameras

Sony a7S II

This is the main camera we use for photo and video. The a7S II features an incredible dynamic range and an extremely sensitive sensor for low light situations.

DJI Phantom 3 Standard

This is the cheapest Phantom 3 you can get, but it still delivers a great 2.7k image and is easy to fly!

GoPro Hero 3+ Black

We also occasionally use a Hero 3 White. We only use the GoPro when holding a camera is impractical.

Ricoh Theta S

The camera we use to capture 1080p 30FPS 360° video. Hopefully we publish some videos using it soon.

Lenses

Sony 16‑35mm f/4.0

This is our primary lens. It’s a Sony lens so full continuous auto focus is possible and because of the a7S’s extreme sensitivity, f/4 is not a problem.

Sony 24‑70mm f/4.0

This is the lens we use if we need a mid-range zoom. The lens covers a good range of focal lengths while still being light and compact.

Rokinon 24mm f/1.4

This is the lens we use if we need to capture something with extremely low light. The a7S II’s ISO range and the large aperture allow the camera to basically see in the dark.

Retired Equipment

Canon 6D

This is the camera we used to use. Many videos we made were filmed entirely on 6Ds. The full frame sensor is great for low light performance and wide angle lenses.

Canon T3i (Full Spectrum)

We use the T3i mainly for night vision shots. The camera was professionally converted through Kolari Vision. Unfortunately this camera was sent to the graveyard.

Canon 16-35 f/2.8

This is the lens Michael primarily used on his 6D. It lacks an image stabilizer but has a larger aperture to allow more light to hit the sensor.

Tamron 15-30mm f/2.8 SP

This was the lens Bryan primarily used on his 6D. It is one of the only f/2.8 ultra-wide zooms with an image stabilizer and is extremely sharp, however, it is quite large and heavy.

Rokinon 14mm f/2.8

This was Michael’s old lens. We’re leaving it on this page though because we have many videos using it and it’s the number one wide angle lens we can recommend for the price!

Sima IR Light

This was the light we used to allow the IR converted T3i to be able to “see” in the dark. It lights the shot similarly to a normal light just our eyes can’t see it!
