My Atomos Rig: Mike Steidley’s Panasonic EVA1 and GH5 setups

Action sports filmmaker and director Mike Steidley walks us through his setups for shooting with the Panasonic EVA1, LUMIX GH5 and LUMIX GH5S cameras. His work requires him to move quickly and follow his subjects so he utilises Zacuto rigs that are designed to balance well on the shoulder, coupled with Atomos monitors to give him the very best view of what’s going on and get accurate focus.



He also uses gimbals heavily for his work and currently owns the Moza Air 2 and MoVI Pro which he uses for the different cameras depending on the job. Again he uses Atomos monitors with these to make sure shots are properly composed. The high brightness displays help him to see what is going on even outside in daylight.


You can watch Mike talk more about his gear and his career in this Atomos Academy video here and you can find out more about Mike
