    Most requested Cameras by clients - 2019-2020
    #1
    Default
    Hello fellow filmmakers.

    I was wondering what cameras clients request the most for commercial, documentary and corporate in 2019-2020.
    $1000 to 10.000 budget.

    I own a Red camera, Few BMPCC 4k and few GH5.

    I'm looking to get a new Run-and-Gun camera for documentary and corporate.

    I'm really thinking about the Canon C300 MKII.

    I really like the colors of the EVA-1, but I'm not sure if clients will say not to that camera.

    The Blackmagic Design URSA Mini Pro 4.6K is an potion but no autofocus.

    I don't think I would go with the c200 or c70.

    Thanks for the help!

    I don’t really have a percentage break-down, but my last 12 months have consisted of F55(mine), C300(mine), P2 VariCam(mine), C300/II(clients) and Amira(clients).

    For your low budget ranges, C300 MKII or FS7 rules.
    It's a business first and a creative outlet second.
    G.A.S. destroys lives. Stop buying gear that doesn't make you money.

    I didn’t really think much of the 300/II when it came out, but the more I use them(clients), the more I (generally) really like the image. I say generally, because a few weeks ago, we did a production shoot with a pair and ran into the well documented issue of how the camera sometimes has issues with how it renders blue.

    Thank you very much of the help!

    It is interesting to see what clients request on projects.

    I didn't think about the F55, that is a sweet camera.

    I really think the C300 MKII is a very good camera, I also like the FS7MKII but is more expensive.

    I can get a C300MKII new for 6k and the FS7MKII for 10K new...big price difference.

    I hope more filmmakers post the info about the most requested cameras!

    Thanks again.

    I sorta feel like the C300mk3 is the way to go if you can afford it. The FS7 version 1 is super cheap on the used market right now and still in demand. C300mk2 priced between the 2 but no 4k60p

    Thanks RUN&GUN, I did not know about the blue color problem.

    The new FX9 has a magenta color cast on all the images. I seen the problem on some finished color projects.

    If I were in the low to midrange commercial/industrial markets the C300II would rank among my first choice options. Decent all around reliable performance, robust editable codecs, good color science, and an incredibly broad selection of native lens options. All at reasonable overall system cost for a small job shop. What's not to like?

    The C300mk2 is fantastic all around as long as you don't want to push in on the 4k image. It does not hold up in terms of detail the way you would expect from a 4k capture once you start cropping.
