Gear Review - Nikon F3

Gear Review - Nikon F3

The Nikon F3 is one of my all time favorite cameras and hands down my favorite SLR. I use this camera whenever I want to give some old school flare to an image. I have put so many rolls of Ilford HP5 Plus and Cine Still film through this camera it’s not even funny.

• Nikon F3 - This camera is seriously fun to shoot and has an amazing legacy. The Nikon F3 was the first Nikon camera to have the red stripe under the shutter button, a signature feature on many Nikon cameras. This is because of the efforts of Italian designer Giorgetto Giugiaro who styled the camera. Giugiaro is also known for designing the DeLorean. The F3 was used to shoot a portion of Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom (1984) during the mine cart scene. By adding a motor drive and film magazine they were able to shoot the miniatures for the scene. NASA also had a partnership with Nikon to make 50 of the “NASA F3” a camera that was used by astronauts to create images in space.

Gear Review - Sony RX100 VA

The Sony RX100 VA is a fantastic little camera I picked up to use for tight spaces, dolly, and jib shots. Paired with the SmallRig Cage Kit this is a fantastic little piece of gear. Always a joy when I get to take this camera out and use it on set.

Death of a Dream (2017) - Short Film

I directed a short film called  Death of a Dream (2017) which was shot entirely on a 23 foot sail boat! It was a huge learning experience and was some of the hardest days I have ever had on a set. Filming out on the ocean with six crew members, three actors, and two sailors was very challenging! Enjoy!
