Canon 5D Mark IV

The Canon 5D Mark IV is the latest addition to the Horsepower arsenal. While you may be familiar with seeing DSLR cameras used for photography, the Mark IV records beautiful HD and 4K video video footage! Used in combination with L series Canon Lenses, the 5D can melt the background of any interview and records stunning b-roll footage to compliment our productions.

DJI Phantom 3 Professional

The DJI Phantom 3 Professional is one of our favorite additions. It’s built in 4K camera and gimbal allows us to provide our clients with smooth aerial footage,  incredible perspectives, beautiful shots and makes a fun addition to many of our productions. While the footage is only a small part of most productions, it provides some of the most memorable scenes that will make a big impact on your audience!

Canon XF305

The Canon XF305 is the workhorse of our long-format video productions.  With the Mark IV handling the bulk of our short format videos, the XF cameras are now mostly used for performances, lectures and presentations. However the image quality of this HD camera is still amazing enough to receive the coveted approval of the BBC for full broadcast use.

Canon XF105

This CMOS Sensor HD Camera may be small but it delivers a big picture! This compact sibling of the XF305 was the first HD camera added to our arsenal. The Canon XF105 provides superior quality in a small body!

GlideCam CamCrane 200 The Glidecam Camcrane 200 is a boom-arm, camera crane system designed to allow us to very smoothly boom the camera up and down, as well as move the camera around in an infinite number of 360-degree arcs.
