Sony F900 Cameraman
Our staff Sony F900 cameraman / digital imaging technician has shot thousands of hours of HDCam footage around the world since 2001. He is a graduate of the 2003 Santa Fe Workshop in Toronto, resides in Los Angeles and has traveled the world.

His camera operator credits and clients include BBC, Disney, Warner Brothers, Sex and the City (behind the scenes), CBS, Channel 4 (England), CSI: Vegas, CSI: Miami, CSI: New York (behind the scenes), Twilight, Direct TV, G4, various concerts, Discovery and National Geographic. Over the years, our staff F900 cameraman / digital imaging technician has identified the best Sony F900 camera operators in Los Angeles and several abroad, so if you have need for multiple f900 cameramen and need to rent several Sony F900 cameras (whether fiber backed or otherwise locked) Saturnalia Productions can easily provide both.

There are several advantages to having Saturnalia Productions provide both your Sony HDW-F900 rental and your F900 cameraman:

  • We can extend a bundled discount to you that a lone HD cameraman without a Sony F900 camera, or a stand-alone Sony F900 camera rental house in Los Angeles, or abroad, could not.

  • You do not have to pay someone in your camera department a "prep day" to pick up and inspect the equipment. Since we own and regularly maintain our Sony HDW-F900 camcorders, there is no cost to you for our prep day.

  • You get a world-class f900 cameraman / digital imaging technician who is extremely familiar with every button and menu setting of the Sony HDW-F900 camera. In other words, he can serve as both a digital imaging technician ("D.I.T.") and a cameraman -- two paid crew positions become one. For dozens of documentaries he has also served as DP/camera operator, gaffer and soundman (a true one man band), saving the production even more money.

  • Our in-house Sony F900 cameraman has extensive start-to-finish knowledge. He has served as series producer on a NBC syndicated series, as a producer on countless projects, and as a post-production supervisor on numerous commercials, features and television shows. This start-to-finish experience will save you time, money and headaches in the field.

We also have used and rented fiber optic cameras for features and television shows.
