At Platypus Productions, we completely understand that, in order for a video or picture to stand the test of time, it needs to be well shot with cutting edge technology. That's why we shoot everything in full HD, with the option for 4K as required and shoot all of our photos with full frame professional Canon cameras. In addition to our camera setup, we also see sound recording as a key component in creating a professional look and feel for your shoot. That's why we always record with broadcast quality audio.
Take a look at some of the kit we use below:
Olympus OMD EM5 mark II
We use this camera as a second shooter, alongside our Canon full frame cameras. The Olympus is robust, and has a stabilisation system that means we can shoot great, original point of view HD footage without the traditional camera shake issues.
Canon 5D Mark III
The Canon 5D III is the mainstay of many filmmakers and photographers alike. The majority of weddings and events are shot with this camera, as are many feature films. It even often captures footage for major Hollywood releases!
Zoom H1 microphone
Whilst we record sound on a wide variety of microphones, depending on the circumstance, the Zoom H1 recorder is by far our favourite, both for its versatility and delivery of broadcast quality audio.
