GH5S
Lumix GH5S Body

MetabonesSpeedBooster
Metabones SpeedBooster

Since we already had invested a lot of money in Cannon EF Mount glass, we had to get this Metabones speedbooster to communicate with the GH5s. There is even an added benefit that it will bring your lenses 2 stops down from what its native setting is.

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8L IS

CanonTelephoto70

This is our go to lens when we’re doing events. It’s really sharp glass with a low fstop that will help you when you’re doing events that they want to keep “intimate” with low lighting. It’s also great to capture the crowd with, without having a camera directly in their face.

A great lens for portrait photography and videography. It’s sharp glass and gives you a nice depth of field.

Canon 24-105 f/4L IS

Canon24to105
Canon 24-105L

This is one of our other favorite lenses to use because it has a nice range and it’s very sharp glass. The only downfall is it’s an f4 however when we use it with the Gh5s and the MetaBones, it helps bring it down to an f2.8.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8

Sigma18to35
Sigma 18 to 35 Art Lens

This is a great lens to use when you want a bit of a wide angle however not an extremely wide angle like the Sigma Art Lens we recommend. This is also great in low light situations.

Audio Options 

Sennheiser AVX Digital Wireless Handheld Mic

AVX Handheld

We love using these wireless microphones because they have a great quality and the wind screen isn’t too large. They are also comfortable against your skin. It also has the small plastic antenna, so no more of people pulling the microphones off from the antenna! It has a great design and holds a 420mAH battery. To have complete peace of mind when recording we do suggest getting a battery pack. Also having the hand held gives you some options. Keep in mind you can’t use the handheld and the lav at the same time with the same transmitter.

Zoom H6

ZoomH6
ZOOM H6 Audio Recorder

This is our favorite device to use to monitor audio. It has a total of four channels, so unless we’re recording four people at the same time, a person will have two channels being recorded. With this set up one channel is set perfectly during the sound check, and the other channel is set to be a lot lower in case there is a spike in the audio like a loud laughter. This way in the edit, we can choose the best audio track to use.

DJI Ronin RS 2

Ronin RS 2
Ronin Rs2 Camera Gimbal

If you have a DSLR or a light weight camera this is a great gimbal to use to capture steady shots. We highly suggest only using with a camera that has a good autofocus though. It’s extremely hard to hold and focus. The time to calibrate isn’t too long once you have done it a couple of times.
