Shooting Partners provided shooting kit for this year’s charity fund raising show on ITV HD.

The kit centered around  Sony’s PMW-F5 camera shooting full HD to Sony SxS cards. Great flexibility and low light capabilities gave an added boost to interviews and contributor’s stories for the show.

PMW-F5_150pxShallow depth of field and top class lens performance was a strong desire from the ITV production team. Added value came in the use of Angenieux lenses DP lenses interfacing through a PL (positive lock) mount to the camera.

The Angenieux Optimo DP 16-42 T2.8 PL Mount Electronic Cinema Zoom Lens is a lightweight and compact PL mount zoom lens. It is designed specifically for digital cameras. Optimo DP 16-42 delivers the superior zoom optics, functionality and ergonomics that DP’s demand at an economical price. The ideal match for the Optimo DP 30-80mm.

The show features Cheryl Cole in a special Coronation Street sketch alongside Michelle Keegan.

Ant & Dec kicked off the live show on Fri 20 Dec, with a spectacular opening from London’s South Bank and the show has so far raised over four million pounds for charities.
