Film Equipment Finance

Film Equipment Financing

One of the challenges of embarking on a film project is financing it apart from underlying preliminary issues. We offer financing options for purchasing film equipment. However, it is essential to enlighten you on the various equipment types and select based on quality and usefulness.

Camera

There are different types of cameras of varying sizes and lens quality. For instance, the Hasselblad H6D or X1D camera. Factors to be considered when choosing cameras include:

Lenses

Lenses determine the quality outcome of your picture or video. Your video’s purpose will select the lens type you are choosing and the range of cameras you are going for. For instance, if you desire a result with a PL Mount, you will need a PL mount camera. However, the good thing is that the lenses are replaceable.

Workflow

This factor is very integral for users in film production. The workflow is determined by how the camera functions after recording, for instance, during transcoding.

Resolution

Resolution refers to the quality and which determines the market value. For instance, the least required resolution for Netflix movies is 4,000. Hence, it is a crucial factor to consider.

Speed

For a feature film, the exposure index on a camera must be considered. It helps you a lot on days when you shoot at night with low lighting. The speed also includes the noise and data level. Hence, you should test run before purchase.

CODEC

Your editing software must support your camera file types. Some software is selective based on data management and storage.

Sensor Size

We have a large and a small sensor. Small sensors are the best because of their field’s depth, which aids easy and great shooting.

Size

The mobility of the camera is essential. Also, the size of a camera may dictate the lenses to use.

Lighting Sources

Regardless of the camera lens quality, you will require a significant lighting effect for outstanding quality. You should invest in a critical light for lighting sources, a backlight, a fill light, and other accessories such as lighting set-up, including stands, clamps, filters, gels, and diffusers.

Sounds

Sound is essential as the video itself. Hence, you require a boom or microphones. There are different kinds of microphones which include.”

Dynamic Microphones

They are mostly used in the studios and not sensitive. It is the cheapest and suitable for loud sources. However, it is unidirectional (it can only be pointed to the capture sound location but not to the back of the mic).

Condenser Microphone

It is utilised for studio works, voiceovers, or condensers. They are not different from a dynamic mic, but they are more transparent and costlier. Also, it offers different directional patterns (may be unidirectional or bidirectional, or multidirectional).

Lapel Microphones

These microphones are the actors’ best friend. They work tirelessly and can be hidden in articles of clothing.

Shotgun Microphones

It is a must-have for every filmmaker. Different types of shotgun microphones fit into different directional patterns and can be mounted. Hence, you can choose which best suits your purpose. They are common on movie sets.
