Camera Package suggestion for low budget corporate
I'm new to the board and would love to get some advice from fellow DPs on what kind of a package to go for to shoot a low budget corporate job.
I took the gig to get more material for a corporate reel. I used to be a 2nd AC and worked on a ton of corporates with decent budget where the DP was always able to go for the alexa, amira or red. Obviously in this case we are talking about a different level so it would be ace if you guys have any suggestions to add!
At the moment I'm between picking a 5Dmk3 or a C300/ C500. It's going to be mainly outdoors, daylight and night time with a doco feel. So the camera needs to be able to shoot low-light w/o much noise also. I'm planning to go for either a set of old prime stills lenses ( due to budget restriction) or a cinema zoom to be able to quickly get in an out of places in which case it also affects whether i get a camera with an EF or PL.
I'm also gonna get the footage graded. So ideally a camera that has a good latitude to work with, there will also be archival iphone footage that we need to grade and match.
I haven't worked with the A7sii so much but heard a ton of nice things about it, in general I guess there are so many cameras out there - would be great to know if anyone has 2 cents to add!
Thanks so much :)
