What Camera does MKBHD Use?

What Camera does MKBHD Use?


– Yo guys, Jonathan here,
today I’ve got a fun behind the scenes look at
shooting with MKBHD, what gear he uses, what gear he recommends,
and also the Tesla Model 3. (relaxing electronic music) So this was cool for me because
oftentimes I prefer being behind the camera in terms
of the creative process as opposed to being in front of the camera. Capturing the shots, the composition, that’s all really fun to
me so it was kinda cool to kick back, watch Marques do his thing but still capture everything
from my perspective. (relaxing electronic music) – The camera is the
Weapon carbon fiber body that I’ve had for awhile,
but the sensor inside is new. It’s the full frame Monstro
8K sensor and it’s glorious. (loud engine roars) I mean, the obvious thing is
all my lenses are wider now. I could never really use
the 100mm macro for anything other than really precise set up shots. But I’ve found that I can
actually use the 100 now for medium shots and weird other applications so that’s pretty fun. My favorite lens now
that I have a full frame is actually the Zeiss 55 Otus. It used to be that 18
to 35 and I still use Sigma’s 24 to 35 for a
lot of the same stuff but I really like that 55 now. – Now for a second, I wanna hop in because this has become kind of a slightly controversial and heated discussion of why YouTubers choose Red to shoot video when it’s completely and
absolutely unnecessary. I actually, to an extent,
agree 100% with that and there are a ton of amazing
creators and videographers out there shooting on GH5s, A6300s, A7s, Canon 5Ds, 6Ds, 80Ds, all kind of Ds. You get the point and I’m sure you’ve heard this a million times before. It’s not what you shoot on
but how you shoot on it. And yeah, I could not
agree with that more. Myself, the reason why I
decided to go Red was kind of the commercial work that
came along with YouTube. Right now, I’m working on
a commercial for Philips that lives outside this
channel on their website. This was all shot on Red, and
that’s where these higher end cinema cameras, for me at
least, start to make more sense. Now as far as Marques, there’s not really much that needs to be said. There’s a reason why
he’s at where he’s at. Plus, he’s constantly and has always tried to push the envelope in
terms of video quality. So naturally, that makes sense. The other thing I think people
often forget is even though we do this as a career, it’s
also what we do for fun. So just like someone would
invest in their music gear or to cars, it’s kinda
similar to how gear is for us. I don’t party, and I’m not really that into cars surprisingly. I do have a slight shoe
addiction but other than that, video gear is really what gets me excited. And also, I’m sure Marques, like myself, has aspirations way beyond YouTube so really that’s why we
go crazy over video gear. With that though, if
you’re curious what camera Marques recommends on a budget? – Best YouTube camera under 1500 bucks? Ah, that’s tough. I almost said iPhone
10, does that make me… A6500? Does that come in
under $1500 right now? – [Jonathan] Pretty solid, yeah. – I think that’s Sony Alpha A6500. – Also, when we hang out
there usually seems to be some sort of gear purchase effect that goes on, I know Judner can attest. Recently I was able to scoop up a pedestal on eBay for an insane price. Honestly, that’s really the only reason why I considered grabbing one. It was so new that Marques thought I was holding out on him. – This is life changing, I’m mad at you for not showing me this earlier. We just got new tripods in
the studio and that’s all fun, but there’s only so much you can do with a tripod without wheels. This is a glorious tripod
with wheels, I’m all in. I mean, so the classic
vertical shot, whenever you see the camera moving up and down,
it’s usually a lot of work. I can demonstrate it on
that tripod but it’s just such a pain but this is
literally weighted to the point where I’ve completely
unlocked it, it’s steady, and then one finger now is just lowering or raising the entire thing. Plus you have the head on top here so you can do these parallax shots. I was missing this in my
life, but expect a step up in the video quality
as soon as I get back. – Lastly, the Model 3, this was my first chance checking out the car. I was actually really impressed. I know I said I’m not that
into cars and for whatever reason, that chromosome
in me seems to be missing. I like them, I appreciate
them, but I don’t go crazy about them but the Tesla Model 3 actually was really freaking nice. The tech inside the Model 3 is incredible. I think the biggest downside
though is it’s nearly impossible to get one
anytime soon unless you A pre-ordered one way back
when or you own a model S, which kinda defeats the purpose of trying to buy a more affordable Tesla. Either way though, it’s awesome. Again, if you missed
that full Model 3 video, that is linked on Marques’s
channel down below. Hopefully you enjoyed this
behind the scenes look. If you did and you are
feeling like being awesome, make sure to smash that like button. This is Jonathan and I
will catch you guys later. (relaxing electronic music)

    $13,000 for a pneumatic stool is insane. There's no way that thing shouldn't cost more than a $1,000 to $2,000 max.

    Hey, you said you are a shoe addict. Why don’t review the nike epic react flynit. I was going through there insta page and I felt that the way they designed the pics to show up what they had in their minds that was intuitive for my personal taste. I know may YouTubers prefer the yeezy boost and you in your videos have worn both the nike and ultraboost. So I thought this would be fun for you as well
