Camera Packages

Our specialty is single camera, film style production and we often co-ordinate multiple camera shoots. We feature Sony F800 (XDcam), PWX FS7 (Xavc) and F900 (Hdcam) camera packages for both NTSC and PAL documentary production with a full selection of lensing, sound, lighting and support equipment

Many of our camera packages are built around the Sony XDCamHD workflow.  This full 1080 4:2:2:, 50 mbps workflow has been accepted by international broadcasters as an excellent production platform.  The Sony F800 professional optical disc format offers all of the advantages of a file based workflow with the confidence of a low cost, easily archivable camera original. 

Survivor, 60 Minutes, BBC's Top Gear, the Amazing Race, Mythbusters and Celebrity Apprentice are just a few of the over 200 network shows working with the F800 and XDCamHD format.

We deliver on disc or harddrive, or by satellite or FTP.

We also often work on projects using the proven tape based workflows of the HDcam F900 or HDX900 formats and can supply single or multi camera solutions.

S-35 Cameras and lensing

Recently we've been getting more requests for S-35 format cameras like the Sony FS7,F5 and F55 and are enjoying doing more projects in that workflow.

We love the Shallow Depth of Focus images provided by S-35 cameras using PL mount lenses like the Zeiss CP2s and Superspeeds.  We also own the adapters to give us access to the wide range of DSLR specialty lenses offered by Canon and Nikon including macro and tilt/shift rigs.


4K has arrived.

With the introduction of their FS7, F5 and F55 camera systems Sony has really brought S-35 imaging and 4K workflow to mainstream users. Most users are opting for UHD 3840x 2160 using XAVC-I and XAVC-L.

In addition to the beautiful images that these cameras deliver, savy producers are considering the advantages of a 4K workflow to futureproof their projects and open up options for theatrical, convention or other large screen presentation.



Talk to us about cost effective camera, monitoring and on-location screening packages built around our Sony Cine Alta camera systems.

We love shooting action!
