Always on the leading edge of new technology.

TaylorVision was among the very first in all of New England to own true high definition 1080i cameras.  Our Sony CineAlta F900 was considered at that time to be the gold standard.  In fact, George Lucas teamed up with Panavision to use the F900 to shoot the STAR WARS Trilogy.  Not long after, we were asked for 720p technology to service our network sports clients and four Panasonic Varicams were added into the fold.  While both options still capture outstanding image quality, we began to see a demand for Super 35mm acquisition.  When FOX SPORTS asked TaylorVision to bring on Sony F3 cameras for their feature production in the 2012 NFL season we knew times were changing.  Since then we’ve taken it to the next level by adding top of the line Sony F55 cameras capable of capturing stunning HD, 2K and 4K imagery.  With the use of our Sound Devices PIX240 digital video recorders we take the mystery out of digital acquisition and file delivery. Your footage will be ready to bring to post in both Final Cut and Avid friendly codecs without any unnecessary transcoding.  Your editors will love us.

  • Kessler Second Shooter – A motion control system capable of repeatable motion control for live-mode, looping, time-lapse and stop-motion applications. The Second Shooter™ is ultra-smooth and quiet making it a great option for a 3rd camera for traditional 2 camera sit down interviews.
  • Chapman Super  Dolly – Our friends at Atomic Dolly and Crane have been working with TaylorVision for years.  The Super Pee Wee is the perfect location dolly that allows the camera to be raised and lowered via a hydraulic arm. It offers a small footprint so it can be maneuvered into tight spaces.  It also has built-in track wheels for both straight and curved track.
