Stepping Out on ITV

Davina McCall hosts the entertainment series in which six celebrities and their real-life partners put their relationships to the ultimate test as they live and breathe dance!

Shooting Partners provided all of the location shooting kits, camera training and location support for this fantastic new dance show on ITV.

PMW-F5_150pxSony F55 in action!

A Sony PMW-F55 was used on all celebrity profile shoots, giving superb picture quality and first class camera control. The latest range from Sony is simply stunning, providing better quality pictures and more versatility than ever.

Shooting to SxS Pro+ cards, the F55 and F5 (next model in F range) offer all the cinematic depth of field and rich pictures on offer from other manufacturers but at a much more cost effective price point.

The F55 and F5 are exceptionally small, light and modular, letting you build up the right configuration for each job – or each shot. As well as the choice of formats and internal and external recording options, you can attach a variety of viewfinders, including the revolutionary optional DVF-EL100 OLED viewfinder, PL-mount, FZ-mount and still lenses, including second-generation Sony PL-mount lenses. An optional shoulder rig provides for hand-held and shoulder-mounted shooting.

EOS-C300_EF_thumbnail-150pxCanon C300s for shooting directors

Canon C300s were used on the bulk of shooting, as celebrities were observed in both dance practice and their day to day lives.

The team at ITV wanted to create a fresh new and rich look to the inserts for this show and the C300 was top of the list for the shooting Directors.

Shooting Partners helped with the decision making process my consulting with the production from it’s most earliest stages. Several camera and lens configurations were considered and tested before a final decision was made to go for the Canon EOS C300. All shooting kits came with custom shoulder rigs and audio package based around the fantastic and simple to use Sennheiser G3 radio mic system.
