The equipment I use for any given shoot depends on the particular requirements of that project. Currently, my main workhorse camera is the Panasonic GH4, which has superb video quality and the ability to shoot in 4K. It’s a fantastic camera that can handle almost any shooting situation. I also occasionally use my Panasonic AG-HMC150 camcorder for certain projects, such as presentations and live events, where a long zoom lens range and XLR audio inputs are important. Finally, I have a Canon EOS 7D DSLR, which I mostly use for still photography.
