My Atomos Rig: Philip Bloom’s camera review gear setup

In this #MyAtomosRig video Philip Bloom walks us through the gear he uses to get creative results in his home studio setup. He utilises a variety of lenses and Sony cameras, combined with the Atomos Sumo19 and Shinobi SDI to achieve a professional look. Lighting and audio also play their part and Philip relies on the Rode NTG4 and NTG5 to get perfect sound. Lighting is provided by his patio doors and supplemented by a CAME TV RGB LED panel light. Using the Sumo 19 allows him to both monitor with confidence and also record Apple ProRes from multiple cameras in HD or a single camera in 4K, The high quality files produced do not require any transcoding and are easy to edit.

Gear used:

• Atomos Sumo 19 HDR production monitor-recorder-switcher
• Atomos Shinobi SDI 5″ HDR monitor

• Sony PXW-FX9
• Sony A7R IV

• Sigma 20mm f1.4 ART lens
• Laowa 24mm probe lens

• Rode NTG5 shotgun microphone
• Rode NTG4 shotgun microphone

• Hollyland Mars 400S wireless video system
