Float like a butterfly,

In pursuit of lightness in filmmaking, I’ve acquired the latest gear in current trend, including Sony FX6, A7s III, DJI RS2, Tilta Float, Advanced Ring, Hydra Alien, Sigma Art E-Mount lenses, and more. And it goes without saying ,all of this is available for rent.


Despite the small size of Sony’s new line of cameras, my FX6s and A7s III produce better images at higher frame rates, The H265 codec can even reduce file size. Furthermore, these cameras are equipped with digital or mechanical stabilization in addition to gimbals.

On the topic of gimbals, DJI’s new gimbal, the RS2, makes no compromises despite being significantly lighter than the Ronin 2. With Tilta’s Advanced Ring, it completely replaces the Ronin 2. Tilta’s Hydra Alien allows you to mount your RS2 on your vehicles in any position with its triangular suction system.

Albeit the changes, for your bigger shoots, the Ronin 2 and the Tilta Arm remain available.

As you may have heard, autofocus has a bright future ahead. Thus explaining my acquisition of two Sigma E-Mount lenses, and soon a third one, all adapted to the new Sony camera’s excellent autofocus.

Also, I’ve acquired another very advanced stabilizer system. The Tilta Float, the illegitimate little brother of the Arri Trinity, combining effortlessly Steadycam dynamics with gimbal technology. Say goodbye to the jerky look of gimbals!

But to get the best out of these new configurations, you will need an operator, with his accessories and experience, therefore, prepare the necessary budget.

The one thing I can promise: your back will not suffer anymore.

The fiction of reality
