Mini Cams and Frequently Asked Questions

What minicam is best for your production – Quality and Budget?

Prime Television has been using, building and operating all sorts of Minicameras and mini-remote cameras for over 15 years. We have been asked to supply equipment and minicam expertise on a wide variety of productions. From hidden minicams and secret filming for news & documentaries (Panorama, Dispatches etc) to specialist filming on major Dramas (Emmerdale/ITV, Hunted/BBC1) to complete minicam rigs on productions like Derren Brown’s Armageddon/Channel 4 and Ape Man/National Geographic.

Hidden Cameras - Minicam hides and builds?

Our latest production, a 6 x 1hour Channel 5/Optomen Factual Entertainment series called ‘Store Detectives’ required a selection of rigged Minicameras along with a vast array of minicams built into different hides, including numerous bag cameras, a hat camera, a couple of jacket cameras, a glasses camera, an umbrella camera, a wheelchair camera (with 2 minicams) and a pram camera (with 2 minicams).

Car Rigs (and multi-camera car rigs) – Pitfalls, rigging, lighting, what can go wrong (we’ve been there) and legal issues?

Our experience on these productions and for many other programmes over the years, is that general naïveté exists in many areas of minicams when it comes to television production. Many are not informed on the advancements that have been made, what can be achieved with the latest technology or where things can go wrong. Now with greater minicam quality, Dramas and high end productions can achieve broadcast HD content using a variety of minicams.

Remote Control Minicameras – What is available, quality, size and ease of use?

We have found that production companies and production staff seem to have a good knowledge of main camera units but much less on what to use, or how to use any minicam element. We would like to change that. To help inform directors, producers and production managers of the specifications, quality and flexibility of the different minicams that are available, Prime Television is launching a Minicam Roadshow.

Minicam Rigging – Cars, Houses, Business Properties, Hidden Cameras and Time?

The last ten years has seen the increasingly widespread use of specialist mini-cameras and remote control heads across a wide range of areas of the entertainment industry including: reality shows, hard-hitting documentaries, dramas, sports coverage, TV commercials, and news and current affairs programmes. Productions use minicams as single camera units (one-off specialist shots), for undercover surveillance, as on-car/motorcycle mounted cameras and on full-blown multi-camera remote head, fixed minicam HD productions.

When is your next roadshow?

The Prime Television Minicam Roadshow will answer all your questions and yes, we can even come to you! We will tailor the Open Day to your requirements and fit in within your time constraints. We suggest you allocate 2-3 hours and we would like to cover these main points of interest;
