What cameras do professional filmmakers use?
Many people will tell you that the best tool a production can have is a great crew. They’re right, in a woolly, philosophical sense: the right equipment won’t lead to the right video. But they’re still important. Knowing what the right equipment is, of course, can be difficult.
To a significant extent, it depends on what you’re filming, and on the preferences of the directors and crews filming it, and of course the video production budget. Opinions tend to vary, as do the range of options available.
