  • What's included in Bristol Production Van?
    It's up to you. While we offer custom rental packages and we can source items we don't already have, we offer the best value for money with our in-house kit. Our in-house kit includes a Canon C70 Cinema Camera and a Blackmagic Pocket Cinema Camera 6k Pro, with a DZO 20-55mm T2.8 Cinema Zoom Lens and the beloved Sigma 18-35 F1.8 Zoom Lens headlining our lens line-up. Bristol Production Van also includes high-powered LED units from the likes of Aputure and Nanlite, C-Stands, Combo Stands, a windup stand and plenty of grip. We can't forget the unbelievably fast and convenient Sachtler Aktiv8 tripod with Flowtech 75 legs, a DJI RS3 Pro gimbal for all your silky smooth footage needs, quality audio from the Sennheiser MKE600 Shotgun Microphone, the 32-bit Zoom F2-BT Wireless Lav Mic and Recorder and the DJI Wireless Dual Mic System- and so much more, all based on a time-efficient cart system, saving you time and money on set.
