It’s time to share my own behind the scene experience and my short film equipment. I didn’t rent anything. Stay tuned to Escape Matter for more.
My Short Film Equipment I Used for ‘KEYS’
So, here’s my equipment list for short film:
1. Camera and Lens
Canon 600D Body
Canon 760D Body
Canon Zoom EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS II
Canon EF Lens 50mm 1:1.8 STM (Prime Lens)
Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 55-250mm 1:4-5.6 IS II
Simpex 2400 Tripod &
Vanguard CX203AP Espod Tripod Aluminum
Another thing to note: While taking handheld shots, I used the camera that has Canon Zoom EF-S 18-55mm 1:3.5-5.6 IS II on because Canon EF Lens 50mm 1:1.8 STM (Prime Lens) doesn’t have the image stabilizer in it and when you use that for hand held shots, the resulting image is very shaky.
So, this was my short film Camera equipment.

2. Lighting and Reflectors
I used white screen from my 5 in 1 reflectors I bought from Amazon. The metal ring in the reflector which is used to wrap the reflector broke on the first day of shoot. But, I found a perfect alternative for it (Hoopla-Ring). Yes, I put hoopla-ring instead of metal ring to support the reflector. I used it to shoot outdoor scenes because the sunlight was very harsh destroying the contrast of the scene. As I was short on crew so I used to click the play button on the camera and then hold the reflector while shooting the scene.
