Question from Anonymous
Is a camera needed for this course, if so, do you cover any type of camera?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! Attendees don't need to bring a camera or anything with them, the school provides all the gear. They don't use a specific camera every time we run this, just whatever the instructor decides to book for that particular instance of the class. In LA, it could be a RED, an ARRI ALEXA Mini or AMIRA, a Canon C300 or a Sony FS7. However, that is not an exhaustive list of what may be used, those are just some of our commonly used cameras. Hope this helps!
