September 21, 20221 min read

Every day we receive lots of questions about our shooting equipment on StoryMatters Facebook Page. Many of you are curious about which camera, lenses, or microphones we use to film our content and advert videos. 

Here is our Filming Equipment Checklist!

#1. Camera

Sony Alpha 6400 Body offers high performance and full-frame features, despite the compact size and lightweight.


#2. Tripod

Manfrotto is an aluminum 3-section tripod with Quick Power Lock that allows unlocking all sections on each leg with one hand movement.


#3. Lenses

For wide shot, we use Sony 16-35 f/2.8 lens and Sony 24-70 f/2.8 for a close-up shot with 35 mm, 50 mm, 85 mm.


#4. Lighting

Godox SL150W + Octabox х2 


Godox SL60W + Softbox x2

As a boom microphone, we use Deity V-mic D3 Pro which works perfectly with phones, tablets, DSLRs, body pack transmitters, and cameras.


The other one is lavalier wireless microphone Sennheiser EW100 G3 which is perfect for portable recording indoors or outdoors.


Zoom H4N is a great choice for filmmaking, recording podcasts, interviews, and even concerts.
