I believe it's the Sony F-900 and primary lighting is coming from the floros on there which i would assume are just hidden kinos.

What I always found amazing is I've never seen a camera shadow.. ever, nor a boom. Good editing, I know, helps that, but still impressive to me.

According to one of the commentary tracks, their camera crew consists of people with prior experience shooting reality shows like Survivor and The Real World, in order to achieve that "run and gun" feel.

Best,

F900Rs. All of the operators are seasoned reality ops. I worked with an op who does some work on the Office. He's also a survivor and amazing race veteran. All of the camera moves are planned, not off the cuff.
