A Photographers & Filmmaker's Buying Guide - Curated by Pros

Ranging from cameras and charging units, to cables and filters — these are the Moment Pros' favorite tools that help them be who they are today.

Holiday 2020 43

Our Moment Pros are a diverse, talented group comprised of creative individuals (or couples!) that we closely work with to create the content you love. We are truly honored to collaborate and work alongside such a unique bunch that pave the way for modern photography and filmmaking. We asked many of our Pros to list us their most beloved items in the shop. Ranging from cameras and charging units, to cables and filters — these are their favorite tools that help them be who they are today. 

Fujifilm X-S10

With the Fujifilm X-S10, you have a camera that makes strategic choices to place itself on the short list for many creators this holiday season and months to come. In a time where interest is increasing and spending is scrutinized, a camera like this is a welcome addition. You have a premium build in a lightweight package with IBIS that lands just under $1,000. This camera is for those that are looking to take phenomenal images and document that experience with great video functionality. It’s one of the cameras you consider when you ask what your first mirrorless camera should be. It's a camera with very little tradeoffs and it’s something I can see a huge group of people picking this up this holiday season.

Moment CineBloom 10% Diffusion Filter

With the moment CineBloom filter you’ll be able to capture rich images and speed up your post-production process. This product adds a layer of diffusion that softens your image in a natural way where light sources inherit a dreamy halation and skin tones feel less artificial. Especially for those that spend a lot of time capturing images of humans, you’ll value the time you save in the retouching process. What makes this product stand out even more is how great it is with respect to its price. Having used this product across multiple professional and personal projects, I can’t imagine leaving home without it. It’s a special product that you’ll want to have more than one of, and something that any image maker in the family will appreciate. And if you want to take this over the top, throw in the Moment Variable ND to really complete the story.

Shure SM7B

If you're looking for an incredible and versatile microphone, the Shure SM7B is great for clean vocal and instrumental recordings. This dynamic mic is especially perfect for those recording in a home studio because its cardioid pattern naturally cuts out a lot of the background noise!

Sony A7III

The A7III is my go-to camera for both photography and videography. It performs incredibly well for both photo & video uses because of it's 24MP sensor, 4k shooting abilities, and autofocus. The eye-autofocus has got to be one of my favourite features for filming vlogs and the fact that it's super lightweight makes it even more fun to shoot with.

MeFoto BackPacker Tripod

I love this tripod because it’s small and light enough to take anywhere, yet versatile and strong enough to hold my phone rigs to my mirrorless cameras with decent sized lenses on them. As a timelapse, astro, and landscape photographer, that’s absolutely essential to create the visuals I need.

Panel Mini

I love this little light! It’s so perfect for adding extra light for my YouTube videos (both on-location and in the studio), key or secondary lighting for product visuals, and best off all (for me), is how great it is for lighting things up in the field for landscape and astrophotography. The battery life is incredible, and being usb-c rechargeable is fantastic. The one little extra feature that really does it for me too, is it being dimmable to 1%. This is perfect for astro and low-light Timelapses (of which I do a LOT).

Fuji XT4

My favorite camera in the last decade! There’s something about Fuji and their color science that pulls me back to their system every time I want to switch to another camera brand. The Fuji X-T4 is the camera I use to shoot all of my YouTube videos and tech portraits. The ability to shoot in DCI 4K, 10-bit, and their beautiful Eterna profile is why I love this camera.

Moment VND 2-5 Stops

The Moment VND is hands down the best variable ND filter I’ve ever used. The clarity in these filters are unmatched. The hard stops at both ends helps eliminate the weird artifacts that pop up if you’ve gone over the limit with your variable ND’s. Plus, there’s very minimal color shift to your images. Highly recommend these filters.
