This is the mobile production unit I use when covering events like NAB and IBC.
I used to use a more traditional camera but after 5 days of constant filming, my back did not thank me!
It can be quite funny when editing with the tiny camera next to me and someone rocks up with a Sony F55 fully loaded with rails, matte box, externally recorders! I’ll try and get some pics of that.
Film Live Mobile Production Kit List
- Sony HXR-NX 30
- Sennheiser ME66 Mic
- MacBook Pro with FCPX
- 1TB external drive
- 32GB SD Card
- Business cards and press pass
- A trendy event man-bag for the gumpf you pick up around the show
- A pen
And that’s it! I do want to add a small L bracket to the camera to mount a light and/or radio mic and possibly a small external recorder as well. I’ll see what I can find around the show!
