When it comes to cutting-edge film and video production, it only makes sense that you would want to work with the best tools available… and it just so happens that Shift Dynamics offers some of the most advanced camera systems and support around!
It’s no wonder that projects for Audi, Chevrolet, Ford, Mitsubishi, ESPN, and NBC Sports have all turned to Shift Dynamics for completion.
The team at Shift Dynamics appreciates your obsession with capturing the perfect shot, as our fascination with camera movement has led us to where we are today. It’s the reason why we’re constantly adding to our impressive arsenal of gear.
Here are just a few of our latest additions to our inventory:
The Sony VENICE 2:
The Sony VENICE 2 made waves when it was used in the recent film, “Top Gun: Maverick.” Although the movie had little to no CGI, the Sony VENICE 2 is a camera that’s perfect for large VFX-centric productions.
Full of new features, the VENICE 2 includes a newly developed full-frame 8.6K sensor and a refined compact design. The camera contains impressive image quality and low-light performance with 16+ stops of dynamic range and 800/3200 dual-base ISO.
What does that all mean? It’s another way of saying this camera will make your footage look natural, dramatic, and ready for the big screen.
ARRI Alexa 35:
Shift Dynamics’ most recent and newest addition, the ARRI Alexa 35 features ARRI’s first new sensor in 12 years, but it’s still as intuitively easy to use as previous models. It's “temperature resistant, splash and dust-proof, and built to last.” With a description like that, we knew it was perfect to add to our inventory.
The most exciting new feature has to be ARRI Textures. It allows cinematographers to choose from a menu of textures that alter how the camera records images. Very versatile, the ARRI Alexa 35 is compatible with a ton of lenses. The Super 35 4:3 native 4K sensor captures each lens' full contrast range and character, and image quality is preserved by the stray-light suppression in the camera and lens mount.
Be sure to schedule a tour or contact us if you’re interested in checking out the setup for yourself — it’s worth seeing.
Teradek Bolt 4K MAX:
Without a thorough monitoring system, you and your team can’t get the most out of a shoot. The wireless Teradek Bolt 4K improves on-set efficiency with its large antenna array and 5,000 ft (1500m) range. With this, you can enjoy the freedom of controlling the core camera settings for a shoot from pretty much anywhere on set — the secret to both happy directors and happy crews.
A Wide Array of Lenses
Shift Dynamics understands the need to find the perfect lens for your shot. We offer a wide range of premium lenses, including the Leitz Thalia (for large format sensors) the Leitz Summicron-C (for those name-brand, clean commercial spots), the Leica R rehoused sets for great playful character, and the high-performance ARRI / ZEISS Master Anamorphic, and many more.
Wondering what you need for your next shoot? Our team also has the expertise and knowledge not only operate this world-class equipment, but guide you through finding what you need. Whether you simply are looking to rent gear or consult with our team, Shift Dynamics can help with every aspect of your project.
You don't have to be starting production on “Top Gun 3” to get the best tools in the business. Shift Dynamics is ready to be your wingman.
