The Steadicam is our favorite, most often used cinema tool. It allows us to create incredible free flowing camera motions that are beautiful to watch and essential for visual storytelling. The Steadicam stabilizes the camera and mechanically isolates it from the operator’s movement, which allows for a smooth shot, even when moving quickly over uneven surfaces.
K2productions offers a wide variety of Steadicam platforms from the Steadicam Pilot up to the Steadicam Archer. Looking for a an even smoother shot? We now have the new Steadicam STEADISEG available. This rare tool combines the stability of the Steadicam mixed with the rolling smoothness of a Segway.
The Steadicam was invented by DP Garrett Brown in 1975 and it revolutionized filmmaking. Garrett has won an Oscar & Emmy for Technical Achievement and he has captured some of the most memorable movie scenes from Rocky, Star Wars, Indian Jones, Casino and many more classics. Garrett is also a friend to K2 and we are extremely lucky to be associated with an industry legend.
The Movi is a handheld 3-axis digital stabilized camera gimbal, so advanced, it redefines the possibilities for camera movement. This cinematic tool is revolutionizing the film and video industry allowing us to move the camera in ways never before possible. Using the Movi allows so much freedom to the production as well as being efficient and cost effective.

Sony F5/F55 CineAlta Camera
Sony’s F55 is the chameleon camera. It supports cinematography—and live television broadcasting. It shoots onboard 4K—and also 2K/HD. It has a Super 35mm sensor—and also offers Center Scan mode to shoot with 16mm PL lenses or with 2/3-inch lenses via B4 adaptor. The F55 can change personality depending on the needs of the project, the day or the individual shot. It’s uniquely engineered to provide pristine footage now—and far into the future.
With the 6K RED DRAGON® sensor, you can capture over 9x more pixels than HD. Unrivaled detail and impressive native exposure eclipse 35mm film in both latitude and image density. Industry leading specs distinguish the EPIC DRAGON as a model for image innovation, helming the evolution of digital cinema technology. 6K resolution translates to over 19 MP, packing the same detail you expect from your DSLR into a cinema camera. When you can capture up to 100 frames per second at full resolution, you get 100 chances per second to capture the perfect picture. Every still is raw and Adobe Photoshop compatible, which means your workflow doesn’t need to change—even if technology does. The RED DRAGON sensor blurs the line between motion and still cameras, giving you the best of both worlds.
Whether we’re filming for the cinema or for television, ALEXA provides stunning, crisp pictures that make our clients’ stories come to life.

Red Epic M
The RED EPIC M digital camera features a 5K sensor which captures up to 120 frames per second at full resolution. Amazing! EPIC adapts easily in challenging light conditions, reaching up to 18 stops of dynamic range with HDRx. 5K images provide streamlined footage for IMAX applications and the most resolution for both stills and motion.
Canon EOS C300
The Canon EOS C300 takes what professionals love about DSLR filmmaking – access to a vast selection of widely available lenses, a large sensor that facilitates a shallow depth of field, and portable operation with a modular, compact camera – and addresses its shortcomings. That means that unlike DSLR cameras, this Cinema EOS camcorder is designed inside and out for professional cinematographers capturing motion pictures that will stand up to rigorous post-production processes.
Canon 5D Mark III
The Canon EOS 5D Mark III offers a supercharged performance with stunning full frame, high-resolution HD footage at cost effective rates. K2 has an arsenal of 5D’s that we use regularly.

It’s the Swiss Army Knife of cameras.

Our Jibs and Cranes allow us to capture sweeping cinematic views for the money shot you need in your production.
They are useful for getting high shots, or shots which need to move a great distance horizontally or vertically, without the expense and safety issues of putting a camera operator on a crane for a crane shot or laying track for a camera dolly. We can even mount them to our dolly for shots in which the camera moves over obstacles when a normal dolly shot would be impossible. Please contact us for full details on our jib and crane sizes and selections.
