The Gear I Own To Create Video On MarcusMeadPK

1

Fs700 V3.0 Firmware - £5000

Fs700 V3.0 Firmware - £5000

Absolutely amazing camera for the price. Perfect for filming sports like Parkour and skateboarding. 240fps in 1080p or if you have a separate recorder like a shogun you can record 120fps in 4k. Some weird design quirks that they fixed in the newer FS7; The screen for one is on top which makes it hard to get high shots. Its more of a "skateboarding" camera where you hold it down low on a skateboard or on glidecam/gimbal. The built in ND's are a life saver and stock mic is mind blowingly good. can even be used as an A mic for short films.

Sony E PZ 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Lens - £650

Sony E PZ 18-200mm f/3.5-6.3 OSS Lens - £650

Wonderful Lens that i got as a stock lens in a bundle with the Fs700. Alone it would cost about £650 and is worth every penny. especially if you own an fs700 as it can take use of the amazing optical stabilizer in the camera. Crazy good zoom that makes it a really nice run and gun event filming lens. Image sharpness is on point with absolutely no weird chromatic aberration or colour fringing. Smooth adjustable speed servo, lovely big focus ring and super fast auto focus.

Canon 550D -£350

Canon 550D -£350

What a great little camera this is. Technically i don't own this camera, my friend does but we live together and share kit. 1080p looks nice and can look rather tasty with the right lens' like L-Series. Also has 720p 50 for those slowmotion shots. With the slowmo comes quiet alot of anti aliasing but hey its slowmo right!
No flippy screen is kinda annoying for getting interesting angles but this camera has served us for many years and has never failed!

GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition - £300

GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition - £300

Absolutely amazing little camera. Really has revolutionized how sports are filmed. Use this in pretty much every video. 4k is great. also now updated to have 240fps which let me put that into perspective my £5000 camera does that and this is literally an 8th of the size. For best first person filming use the 4k super view or 1080 60-80fps super view and use a custom mouth mount.

GoPro Hero 3+ £230

GoPro Hero 3+ £230

I bought this a couple of months before the Hero 4 came out and what a difference, honestly. This is a great camera don't get me wrong but the hero 4 blows it out of the water in every way.

Bose Q15 - £270

Bose Q15 - £270

Amazing headphones. Really! They blow every pair of headphones i've used to date and there 5 years old. Which is another good thing there 5 years old and still work with only a little ware and tare on them and I really chuck these things around. I've gone through a few cables but there only £20 to replace so its all good. The noise cancelling in great except for on buses just seem to cut out on lower battery power when you go over a pot hole. But on trains and planes its sublime. Also great editing headphones and monitoring headphones. Definitely recommend

Phantom 2 - £800 with out GoPro Hero 4

My DJI Phantom 2 with a GoPro hero 4 looking majestic in the sunshine! Great piece of kit but honestly if i didn't have my show GoPro adventures i would upgrade to the Phanom 3 or Inpire 1... Probably the Inspire 1. T`he phantom 2 is more of a hobbled together piece of kit that takes a bit of work to use. Great footage after some effects but its soooo much easier to use a new phantom 3 and especially in high winds with the Inspire 1. Had this for 2 years and love it. So useful to boost those production values and get some great shots from a new perspective.

Hercules XPS Dj Monitors - £120

Hercules XPS Dj Monitors - £120

Awesome monitors that i got in the boxing day sale on Amazon. Fantastic audio quality and sleek design. Perfect for listening to some tunes and also great monitors for editing videos.

Focusrite Saffire 6 - Not for sale any more

Focusrite Saffire 6 - Not for sale any more

Really nice preamp for using xlr and 1/4 inch jack inputs like Microphones or instruments. I use it to do all my voice over work with the Sony Fs700 microphone. Sounds niiiiiiiice!

Black Pearl FPV Monitor (with Custom antennas, not in photo) - £200

Black Pearl FPV Monitor (with Custom antennas, not in photo) - £200

Great Fpv monitor for my Phantom 2 also doubles as my external monitor for my Fs700 when coupled with a magic arm and an HDMI cable. Its 480p but its good enough to frame shots and check focus easier.

Anker Astro E7 26800mah Charger

Anker Astro E7 26800mah Charger

Literally can not go anywhere with out this thing, phone batteries these days such and this does a good job of charging it fast. Can get at least 3 full GoPro charges and a phone charge out of it. Highly recommend and also has a randomly handy flash light on it.

15

Canon EF Lens - 50 mm - F/1.8 - £60

Canon EF Lens - 50 mm - F/1.8 - £60

Nicknamed the nifty fifty this lens is soooo useful and incredible cheap. It's the lens literally everyone gets for their DSLR after their stock lens. Cheap, plastic, shit focus ring but good sharpness and nice image quality. Definitely worth getting to get those nice depth of field shots.

16

Rokinon 14mm F/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens - £300

Rokinon 14mm F/2.8 Ultra Wide Angle Lens - £300

Awesome lens for getting wide angle shots. Manual aperture and focus also work ok in low light. Image sharpness is great and we literally use it in every video for at least something.

17

Yashinon-DS 50mm f1.4 Prime Lens M42 Screw Mount - £20

Yashinon-DS 50mm f1.4 Prime Lens M42 Screw Mount - £20

Wonderful little Russian 50mm. You can pick up these m42 screw mount lens suuuper cheap if you can find them, Seriously worth hunting for. Got this one from a market nice an cheap and its great. Image quality is great and has some nice characteristics to it as well.

Velbon DF 40 Tripod - £20

Velbon DF 40 Tripod - £20

Just some super cheap shitty plastic tripod that i have buuuut it gets the job done and its useful for a Dslr and can just about hold my Fs700 without breaking... just

MANFROTTO 504 HD HEAD WITH 546B TWO-STAGE ALUMINUM TRIPOD SYSTEM - £473.46

MANFROTTO 504 HD HEAD WITH 546B TWO-STAGE ALUMINUM TRIPOD SYSTEM - £473.46

Now that's a tripod!! haha. This thing is a beauty super sturdy and solid, has that lovely fluid head for those smooth pans and tilts. We actually got this for free funny enough after doing a shoot for this random charity company. They said they had a couple of tripods upstairs they needed to get rid of... i don't think they knew anything about them haha. The only problem about this tripod is also its strength its the weight and size of it. Its rather heavy which makes transporting it rather hard.

Apple MacBook Pro 15" with Retina Display (2015) - £1500

Apple MacBook Pro 15" with Retina Display (2015) - £1500

Overpriced piece of poo that i broke on the 3rd day of having it. haha cracked the screen and that was that. But seriously you can build a monster pc for that price. Plus these things throttle them self's when you try to do anything intensive on them from over heating (bad design, style of function) so you're not getting the best performance out of them.

eimo DSLR Stedie Cam - £84

eimo DSLR Stedie Cam - £84

Super Cheap Stediecam that we use with the 500D. Great for small Dslr's. With some work and skill you can get some lovely buttery smooth shots out of this thing. We use and recommend a 14mm lens and a 50mm prime lens.

19

Zoom H4n SP Handheld Digital Recorder - £170

Zoom H4n SP Handheld Digital Recorder - £170

I'll be honest we don't use this that much, but its great for interviews, recording audio with Xlrs on a dlsr, or for short films.

An asortment of SD Cards £100 ish

Use what ever SD card as long as its a good Class 10. Good brands are: Sandisk, Samsung and PNY. Also this super handy headphone puch that i use as a SD card and Gopro Battery holder. Everyone should have one!
