HDSLR Camera Prep For Cinema 5D.

Cameras

By: Jared Abrams

Here is a quick and dirty video on some of the steps we will take during our camera prep before any shoot. We always check the sensor to make sure there are no problems. I also check all of the electronics to make sure they all work as they should. It is also a good idea to build the camera in whatever configuration that you may use during the shoot. We also physically put our hand on all of the equipment we will use for the shoot. Leaving something behind is a real pain. A camera prep will save time during the shoot and ultimately money on the day.

Here is our camera prep gear breakdown.
