Camera Cages, Rigs, & Rig Accessories
A cinematographer can utilize many different tools to accomplish their specific goals. Depending on the situation, they’ll need to use a different combination of DSLR, mirrorless, and cinema camera rigs, camera cages, matte boxes, or follow focus systems to achieve the desired results.
Tools of the Trade
In video production, using the right tools is often just as important as the creative vision driving the project. When you need camera stability, a video camera rig of some sort may be necessary to ensure you get the perfect shot. If you face aggressive lens flares or require precise focus on something in your frame, a matte box or follow focus for your camera rig will help get the job done.
