Grizzly Smith Media has a 2-ton grip & electric package, as well as two different 4K camera packages available for hire. Read the details for each package below.
Quasar/LED Fresnel Lighting and Grip Package
Our grip/electric package includes everything you need to shoot a commercial, short film, or TV episode, loaded onto a high-roof Ram Promaster 3500 with a Tommy Gate liftgate. Everything rolls off the truck on professional carts by Studio Carts.
6 x Quasar Crossfade 4ft 6-bank
Each of these fixtures contain six 4-foot Quasar Crossfade self-ballasted LED tubes. They are mounted in a Kino Flo 4ft/4bank fixture, but have been customized to be able to hold 6 tubes instead of the customary 4. Each tube can have its color temperature dialed in from 2000 Kelvin up to 6000.
Each tube can be removed from the fixture to be used individually for smaller lighting tasks. Each of these tubes has only 1/3 of a stop less output than a full Kino 4ft 4bank, so they are useful alone, and produce a massive amount of light when used together. Furthermore, they are dimmable, so they can be fine-tuned to the exact amount of output needed.
Each tube only consumes 50 watts of power at full output, so the whole fixture at maximum power only requires 300 watts, the same as an old fluorescent Kino Flo 4ft 4bank.
3 x Quasar Crossfade 2ft 6-bank
Just like the 4-foot banks above, these 2-foot fixtures consist of a Kino Flo shell customized to hold 6 Quasar Crossfade tubes. Each tube can be removed from the fixture and used independently, each can have their color temperature dialed in from 2000 to 6000 Kelvin, and each is dimmable.
2-foot Quasar Crossfades only require 25 watts of power per tube at full power, so the whole fixture with 6 tubes inside only requires 150 watts.
2 x Intellytech Light Canon Pro LED Fresnel
These 5600K daylight balanced fresnels have an output similar to a 2K tungsten light. Unlike tungsten, however, they do not run hot, they are fully dimmable without any change in color, and they only require about 400 watts each to power.
Each fixture includes a standard set of barn doors and a soft box.
4 x Intellytech F-165 LED Fresnel
These 5600K daylight balanced fresnels consume only 165 watts at full power, yet have output comparable to a 1K tungsten fixture. They produce no heat and are fully dimmable without color shift. Each includes a set of barn doors.
Dracast 2000 LED Fresnel
This 5600K fresnel is comparable in output to maybe a 1.25K tungsten light.

Sony FS700 with Odyssey 7Q+
The Sony FS700 camera, combined with the Convergent Design Odyssey 7Q+ is a powerful 4K capable video recording system. With the two of them together, I can shoot 12-bit RAW 4K footage at 60 frames per second, or up to 120 frames per second for short bursts. I can also shoot 2K footage at up to 240 frames per second.
The FS700 uses Sony's proprietary S-Log 2 to capture footage with a substantial dynamic range of 14 stops. The Odyssey 7Q+ can record that footage in cinema DNG files, or in ProRes if limited hard drive space is a concern.
4K RAW-capable Super 35 sensor. E-Mount, easily adaptable to other lens mounts. Internal ND filters. 3G SDI and HDMI out.

Manfrotto single stage tripod with 114MV Cine/Video Dolly
This doesn't provide the smoothest ride, as it's just a set of wheels that mounts right onto your spike-footed tripod. Nevertheless, it's rather nice when on a sound stage or at a location with a smooth, flat floor to have your jib sitting on top of it when it's time to move to the next setup.
