Christian has been doing some amazing footage with his equipment, we decided to take a look on his YouTube channel and we find a lot of interesting things. He is a filmmaker, artist, photographer, and podcaster under the name of Yung Sony aka Christian Mate Grab.

He basically’s doing everything, documentaries, short films you name it! He also works a lot on the edition of these videos, he got a few tutorials on his youtube channel about how to upgrade your videos doing a professional edition of these.

Let’s talk about Christian Maté Grab camera gear.

Sony A7S II

4K Video

beautiful design, light weight

The Sony A7S was already an impressive low light camera but Sony decided to take everything to a whole new different level with the Sony A7SII, Sony has made some huge yet impressive upgrades with this new camera.

While the sensor remains unchanged Sony decided to improve the image processing engine to provide even better high ISO performance, considering how wonderful the original A7S was at high ISOs this is quite a challenge.

With improved controls and ergonomics as well as Sony’s impressive 5-axis image stabilization technology this camera actually dominated the market since the very first day it was launched. 

There are no surprises when we talk about Sony’s excellent ISO performance, and this is where A7S II truly shines. At ISO 100 there is no noise at all, even up to 3200, the noise levels remain practically low. 

Specifications:

  • Internal UHD 4K recording 
  • S-long 3 (in addition to s-log 2)
  • Gamma display assistant (allow you to monitor your flat s-log 2 or 3 images in a more vivid Rec 709 way)
  • Internal IBIS stabilization system (5-Axis SteadyShot)
  • The possibility to charge the camera via USB port 
  • The possibility to assign ‘’REC’’ to other buttons than the awkwardly placed rec button
  • 100fps (PAL), 120fps (NTSC) in HD quality

Christian's second-hand camera

Canon EOS R

Great Design

touch screen and face detect

It’s actually kinda obvious why so many people are using this camera, the EOS R’s 30.0MP sensor, Digic 8 processor and RF lenses deliver beautiful and formidable image quality.

Despite being older than the Sony AR7 III the Canon EOS R offers a solid quality image, but if we talk about low light footage this camera is not the best option for you.

‘’A capable but conservative full-frame mirrorless camera.’’ It was launched in 2028 and received a few critics but two years later with a lower price tag, everybody is in love with this one. 

FOR:

  • Great control customization 
  • 5,655(!) Focus positions 
  • Fully articulating screen 
  • M-Fn Bar 

AGAINST:

  • No in-body stabilization
  • Cropped 4K video 
  • Single SD card slot
  • M-Fn Bar

This is the first full-frame mirrorless camera to use the powerful new RF mount. it’s built around exactly the same 30 megapixels Dual Pixels CMOS sensor, Canon actually says the RF lens mount will allow them to design better or smaller lenses than they can for the existing EF mount.

KEY SPECIFICATIONS:

  • 30MP full-frame sensor with Dual Pixel autofocus 
  • 3.69M dot OLED viewfinder
  • Fully articulated rear LCD 
  • Autofocus rated down to -6EV 
  • Up to 8 fps shooting (5 fps with continuous AF, 3fps ‘Tracking Priority mode’  
  • UHD 4K 30p video from a 1.8x crop of the sensor 
  • Canon Log (10-bit 4:2:2 over HDMI or 8-bit 4:2:0 internal)
  • USB charging (with some chargers)

The EOS R gives an excellent impression when you grab it, the whole camera feels really solid and immediately gives you that sensation of being holding a professional camera, we have been shooting with this camera for a long period of time and besides the lack of in-body stabilization there not too much we can complain about.

Christian Mate Grab Drone

DJI MAVIC 2 PRO

There is a lot to say about the DJI Mavic 2 Pro, but let’s keep it simple it’s still the most impressive drone to date and also the number one option for most people.

Its 20MP one-inch sensor is capable of shooting excellent RAW and also, amazing 4K video. It’s a little bit expensive and can’t shoot 4K video at 60fps, but those are the real only critics about this awesome drone.

FOR:

  • Easy to fly
  • Intuitive app for camera control 
  • Large one-inch 20MP sensor
  • Aperture control 
  • Foldable design
  • Easy to pack

AGAINST:

  • Battery life is limited 
  • Noise is problematic above ISO 100
  • Camera locked in landscape 
  • Orientation

Flying the DJI Mavic 2 Pro honestly couldn’t be easier, This is thanks in part to GPS which holds the drone in position and stops it from getting blown out of position by the wind, and safety features like collision avoidance.

Many camera controls need to be accessed through the app but the controller also offers 11 direct access controls that allow you to quickly access a number of commonly used functions.

These new features are really incredible, but don’t let them drive you into a false sense of security, despite being active by default it won’t necessarily stop the drone from crashing into objects.

Alright alright, that’s was everything!

It doesn’t matter if you start buying a drone or a professional camera, the important thing is to take the first step, go ahead!
