Panasonic P2 HD broadcast cameras

We use Panasonic broadcast cameras,which are some of the most versatile cameras available. They allow cost effective productions while offering 4:2:2 colour quality. That’s a big advantage when the footage needs to be colour corrected in post production or chroma keying (green screen) is required.

Our cameras offer wireless audio, exchangeable lenses and can be combined with a teleprompter.

Professional camera abilities:

 

  • Multi-Format (1080/60i/50i/25p/24p, 720/60p/50p/30p/25p/24p)
  • Full SDI-Out (HD video with embedded audio)
  • Synchro Shutter (eliminates flicker from lights, monitors or projection screens)
  • Exchangeable lenses (with professional zoom remotes for camera operation)
  • Timecode In/Out (sync point for multi camera recordings)
  • Same chip set (consistent image look across all cameras)
  • Time Lapse and Slow Motion (variable frame rate from 2 frames to 10 minutes)

4K quality stabilised video

3 axis gimbal stabilisation

Our ‘DJI Osmo’ stabilisation system allows smooth handheld motion video, similar to Steadicam applications but with a much smaller footprint. We capture vision up to 4K resolution. The set-up is very quickly assembled and provides a great solution for any piece to camera. The spring-loaded arm significantly reduces vertical shaking of the camera while walking.

3 axis gyro stabilisation

Our Kenyon ‘KS-4×4′ 3 axis gyro resists directional change and brings stability by dampening out shakes and vibrations. We like to use this gyro in combination with heavier cameras, in particular for filming on boats, out of cars or from helicopters.

Cinematic look video production

Features, music clips and highlight videos are mostly shot in a cinematic style. Thor Productions are specialists in creating this highly sought after narrow depth of field ‘film look’. We use large sensor cameras, mirrorless cameras, DSLRs and DoF adapters to achieve this within the available budget.

‘Film look’ for smaller video productions

Choosing the best camera for the job depends on the intended use of the video, the available budget and the workflow of the production.

  • DSLRs and mirrorless cameras can be a great choice for smaller budgets and Sony’s A7s cameras have the added advantage to work very well in extreme low light situations
  • Broadcast cameras in combination with top end DoF adapters and 35mm still lenses are great for jobs that require fast workflows like documentaries or current affair stories
