Overall, we select the best possible cameras for a broad set of applications including the Sony EX XDCAM series (capable of 4:2:2 sampling for our chroma key shoots; the Canon XHA1s for general use HD acquisition (especially at weddings and events); and our favorite most exciting camera – the revolutionary 5DM2 DSLR/video camera which we have used on the Steadicam, jib, at exclusive events, and in the studio for amazing interviews and corporate demo shots.
By far, the 5D has quickly and aptly produced the best video we have ever seen – film-like, cinematic, and able to capture fanstastic images in low light that we’ve ever seen. Simply put, we are able to now use any photographic lens we want in a small package to record video using natural or available lighting at weddings, events, and in the studio. Although this camea is used by many photographers, don’t let it fool you – it has been one of the best video cameras AMC has ever used and has become a phenomenal tool! Ask to show you samples and you will agree that the 5DMII has a strong future for many different video applications.
