Wooden Camera Premium Shoulder Rig (C300 Quick Release optional)

Wooden Camera Premium Shoulder Rig + C300 Quick Plate | I've worked with a lot of shoulder rigs and this is by far my favorite - it's comfortable, very customizable, and well-built but surprisingly light. It also gets style points for the leather handles. The rig can be used with any ARRI-style bridge plate or the optional C300 quick release system. I've used it with the Canon C300 and 5D, RED Epic, and Sony FS7.

Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM Art Lens

Sigma 18-35m f1.8 ART Lens (EF Mount) | I truly LOVE this lens, whether shooting video or stills it's a great range and having a zoom that can open up to f1.8 still amazes me. The catch - it's designed for APS-C sized sensors so it won't cover a full-frame camera at all ranges. It's compatible with all Super 35 and APS-C sensors, so it's great for the Canon 7D, 70D, C300, C100, RED Epic & Dragon, Sony FS7 & FS5, etc.

Tokina 11-16mm f/2.8 Lens

Tokina 11-16mm f2.8 Lens (EF Mount) | This a great super-wide lens for APS-C and Super 35 sensors, however it doesn't cover the entire range on a full frame camera. Compatible with EF Mount options such as the Canon C300, C100, 7D, 70D, etc.

Sachtler FSB 6 Fluid Head Tripod

Sachtler FSB-6 T Fluid Head Tripod | The FSB-6 fluid head is super-smooth, with 4 levels of resistance and 10 levels of counterbalance, plus pan and tilt locks. The telescopic legs make it extremely versatile, allowing you to shoot as low as 10" up to almost 7'. Leave that high hat at home. It's well-built but relatively lightweight and has a 20lb capacity.

Nicholas was easy to communicate with, gear was in great condition, and he offered some helpful suggestions about alternate options when one of the items I was looking for wasn't available. Would def rent from Nicholas again

Awesome lens!

Nicholas was great to work with! Thanks for a great experience and hope to work together again :)
