CUSTOMER CASE STUDY: Cinematic Workout with Little Ones Lift


Mike Wilson got in touch to hire equipment to shoot a Saturday wedding, but took advantage of our free Sundays to make good use of the kit the following day too!

Here is his story:

I hired a bunch of equipment from you guys for a wedding I was shooting on the Saturday, and because of your awesome weekend hire deal I thought I would make the most of it and book in a fitness shoot for the Sunday too.

I wasn't sure exactly what I would need so actually booked too much stuff, but a quick phone call later and one of your colleagues had a mended the order easily and a refund went swiftly though. When I received the confirmation phone call for the order I was asked what I was shooting and explained it was primarily for a wedding. Your colleague hooked me up with an extra day of hire free of charge to make sure all the equipment was with me in plenty of time, which was a really nice touch! Everyone I have ever spoken to at hire a camera have always been a delight to chat to and super helpful. But to be honest the only reason I hire from you is for the Haribo! ;-)

I had been wanting to make a fitness edit for a while and I really wanted to take advantage of the a6500’s 120fps for some of the shots as well as the IBIS. We were shooting in an open gym, so I wanted to be as inconspicuous as possible and shoot hand-held! It's a great camera and I got on with it well, the fast auto focus and touch screen were ideal and worked really nicely when shooting wide open! I used the camera with my 50mm FE f1.8 and 28mm FE f2. Next time I'll be eyeing up some of those nice new sigma lenses though...


We would like to say a huge thank you to Michael for sharing this gorgeous video with us, for his lovely report on his experience with us here at Hireacamera and for generally being an all-round lovely chap!
