Exclusively "bring your own device"
All of our equipment is offered on a 'bring your own device' basis.
We do not have phones or tablets available to lend, you must use your own device.
We have two kinds of kits that are available for mobile phones: ones that are specifically made to work with iPhone 5/5s/SE and iPhone 6/6s, and ones that are adjustable so they can fit phones of any make and size. The main part of these are a 'grip' that allows your phone to be mounted on a tripod, offer stability while shooting 'hand-held', and are ready to add lights, microphones, and other accessories. All of our kits come with a short shotgun microphone with indoor and outdoor filters, and a small LED light.
Grips are available for iPad minis and iPad Airs/iPad Pros which give the option to mount your device on a tripod which offers stability while shooting 'hand-held', and are ready to add lights, microphones, and other accessories. We also have a universal mount that will fit most tablets, and has a tripod mount on it's base.
