Video leaders and DPs are eager to know what the most in-demand and popular video cameras for corporate production are. Here at Crews Control, we are known as the industry experts on corporate and agency location production trends. Based on the high number of video shoots we coordinate every month, we also collect the critical data that professional filmmakers need to know when renting and buying camera equipment.
If you’ve followed us for any length of time, you know we consistently share data and trends that we collect from thousands of video shoots worldwide. Normally you would find this data in our monthly newsletter, but now you can find this critical information here on Blog Central.
The data we collect is used by corporate in-house media groups and production companies to forecast trends and make decisions on equipment purchases for the future. Manufacturers use our data to identify rising trends in usage of their platforms worldwide. The most popular video cameras can change drastically in just a few weeks. In this article, you’ll find our December 2020 camera usage report.

Shown in the data above, the Sony PXW-FS7 is the most commonly requested and used camera for our corporate video productions. This has been a reoccurring trend in our Camera Usage Reports since 2018. Compared to last month’s report, the Canon EOS C300 Mark II fell in popularity for December video shoots. The Sony PXW-FX9 holds a steady placement in our report compared to last month’s report as well. Considering that the FX9 is one of the newest cameras our crews offer, we are eager to see if this Sony camera will beat out the FS7 in the years to come.
