Cameras

All our cameras are full HD, fully digital and all feature interchangeable lenses.

Sony EX3 (x32) - The school looked at several cameras and manufacturers before settling on the Sony EX range, a workhouse of the industry. The camera met all our requirements and was versatile enough for both large and small screen projects. Noteworthy productions that the EX3 has been used on include the TV series Dexter, the documentary channel Animal Planet and the feature film Monsters. Sony F3 (x5) – A large appeal to offering the Sony F3 at Met is that it has a similar operating system to that of the EX3, ultimately streamlining the learning process for our students. Having a larger sensor camera like this has been particularly beneficial to those studying our cinematography course, as well as various graduation projects. Productions that have used the F3 have included This is England 88 and Safety Not Guaranteed. JVC HM700E (x10) Red Scarlets (x2 - used for teaching only)
