Its All About Story
This gets said a lot. And it is absolutely true. Story trumps tools and toys all day long, but I’m putting that aside today to admire the craftsmanship and beauty of gear. Function is important, but when function and beautiful design come together you get something amazing.
These wooden rigs by Ergo Cine are absolutely stunning. Love the natural look that also brings proper economics to todays cameras. Have a look at their website for more information.
I love the idea of wooden handles, something that will get better with age and you could pass on.
Lets be honest… The FS700 is hardly a beautiful camera. It is an awkward, fat and boxy piece of plastic wrapped around a sensor. That said, the Movecam cage turns it into a thing of beauty.
It’s no wonder RED has a cult following. Not only for the resolution and dynamic range, but for the absolutely gorgeous gear and rigging.
Tilta makes several gorgeous cages. From the BMPCC to RED and Canon C cameras, they’ve got you covered.
I’ve done several Wooden Camera gear reviews and every time I buy something from them, I’m instantly in love. I have a thing for leather, so naturally I love their leather handles.
If James Bond took photos… And was a hipster…
Taking your favorite lens and making it a cinema ready tool.
While we’re talking about lenses…
What gear do you think should be added to this list?
