The options for lighting are endless but know what you need to achieve is the first step to
selecting the correct light. Lighting options change very quickly in the photography and film
industries, so having an up to date understanding of the current options is very important.

Things that must be considered are:
• Colour Temperature (CCT) Accuracy
• Luminosity
• Tough Quality
• Focusing Range
• Variety of Modifiers
• RGB Control
• Flicker Rate
• Lux Graph
• DMX Control
• Remote Control
• Diffusion Evenness
• Beam Angle


Picking a camera requires knowledge of both camera features and required outcomes. These
days there are cameras designed to give 8k resolution, 22 stops of dynamic range and can
shoot 300 frames a second. But that’s not for everyone. There are others that can freeze a
bullet mid-flight or make midnight look like midday. There are even cameras that can follow
you around the room and switch between people as they speak. Know the right camera for
the right job is where we help.


Audio is about knowing the quality of each microphone, what it is used for, as well as the
acoustics of the room it is going to be used in. Not all microphones are the same and each one
performs a unique job. Let us choose the right microphone for your particular purpose.

We have microphones for interviews to recording the sound of a cheering crowd in VR 360.

We also have acoustic foam designed to reduce echoes, which is perfect if you want to create a sound-treated studio space

Services Australia Studio Builds

At Dragon Image, we are always looking to go above and beyond when it comes to our studio build projects. Our latest studio comes in the form of Services Australia, which is easily one of the biggest studio projects we’ve undertaken. Given the scale of the build, the quoting stage of this studio build was quite long, however, the time and effort gone into ensuring the client has received the best possible solution for their needs make it all worthwhile.
