Why filmplusgear.com?

In a world with a lot of blogs, website and youtube channels about gear, this question seems right to ask.

 

filmplusgear.com – because I want to help!

As a (primarely) one man band in the movie making and cinematography business I struggle (a lot) about which gear to get and which gear is better left in the store. I find myself buying a lot of gear. A lot of it end up on a shelf because I don’t use it. Eventually I sell it and loose money on it. When you are a one man band, the boss who’s paying is you! I see this page as my contribution to the one-man-bands and small production companies out there. I wanna help make things easier.

Facebook groups

Several years ago I founded a few facebook groups, primarely for Sony gear, but also other stuff. Today I run or co-run about 25 i all. The Sony groups are the largest out there on Facebook. +30.000 member in the three of them alone, in total it’s past 50.000 members.. Visit them here: the a7x groupthe FS5 group and the FS7 group. And if you are in Denmark or even Scandinavia, come and join Brix Video Nørderier, a Facebook group I co-run with Nicolai Brix.

I also run these groups run:

I found that Facebook groups are great places to give products a voice and give and get advice! Sounds funny, but I really wanna hear from other users, real people. Hear about their thoughts on the product.

Now I wanted to extend the reach out from the groups to the web in general. Those thoughts became filmplusgear.com
