Canon EOS C100 Mark II
The Canon C100 Mark II has the added features of 50/60p, wifi, better ergonomics and monitoring than its predecessor C100 MKI, far cheaper than getting a comparable DSLR once you add all the bells and whistles that it already comes with. It is lighter than a DSLR and designed in a way to eliminate rolling shutter and function like a high-end cinematic capture device. Rigging this baby can be done cheaply as well.
Canon EOS C100 kit (Dual Pixel AF) X 3
The reliable workhorse – this is such a small stealthy camera that it’s a perfect A or B cam for most productions we shoot. We use an external recorder such as an Atomos Ninja and record the clean HDMI output from this camera and guess what? You’re basically getting the same image quality as you would from the C300 with instant Prores HQ – for a lot less.

Canon Cine Prime KIT 24 / 35 / 50 /85mm

However, cine style lenses, regardless of type of mount, remain a class of their own due to the way they are machined – with filmmaking in mind.

MOVI M5 3-Axis Motorized Gimbal Stabilizer from Freefly
Designed for mid-sized DSLRs, mirrorless cameras, and camcorders weighing up to 5 pounds, including the lens. For camera stabilization the M5 uses three motors and an IMU (inertial measurement unit) to detect and counteract unwanted movement along three axes: pan, tilt, and roll. In particular, compensating for handshake or vehicle-induced vibration and reducing translation. There is a quick-release adapter available separately so that it can be mounted on cranes, jibs, vehicle mounts, and other camera support equipment. There is also an MR (multi-rotor) conversion kit, available separately, so that it can mounted on a UAV.
Freefly MIMIC controller
The MIMIC controller for MōVI is moving gimbal operation away from unintuitive controllers with joysticks and knobs, and it’s making the process easy enough for everyone to do it. Essentially, it’s a handheld controller that you can move kinetically, and through some sort of wireless engineering magic, the gimbal follows those movements seamlessly. Freefly has tightly integrated the MōVI Pro with RED cameras to allow users to access RED camera controls from hundreds of feet away using the new MIMIC controller.
