“We have been working with Bluefin TV for a number of years now and would definitely recommend them. They have all camera formats in-house and their tireless crews are always prepared to go the extra mile for that elusive shot…. They are just what we need, and often at the last minute too!”

Bluefin Television has extensive in-house experience in specialised filming tecqniques and Mini-Cam installations.
Combined with an established database of tried and trusted crews – each with their own specialist skills – we are in an ideal position to help you achieve the best possible results.
We offer a technical and production consultancy service, working with clients from the initial stages of production. Through on-going discussions, meetings and research we are able to configure the best methods to achieve our clients goals.
Drawing on our extensive experience, this can involve building specialist camera-rigs, coming up with innovative ways of filming or simply using our range of specialist cameras to capture creative and unusual angles.

Our camera range includes:
Canon 5D, 7D, Canon C300, C500, Sony F55, F5, F3, FS700, RED Epic, RED Scarlet and Arri Alexa Plus.
Vehicle Filming – In & On
Our highly skilled operatives have experience in all types of vehicle filming – including cars, motorcycles, boats and aircraft.
From tracking vehicles, low-loaders and door & bonnet mounts through to multi-camera filming using radio-controlled mini & micro-Cam systems, we can tailor the right solution to your budget.
We have extensive experience in filming from both helicopters and fixed-wing aircarft, using both manual and gyroscopic systems such as the Cineflex V14.
We are experienced in most systmes including Wescam, Tyler mounts, Kestrel sider-mounts and video superball.
Underwater & Marine Filming
Our full-qualified HSE operatives have experience in all types of underwater filming, from a presenter on a pristine coral reef through to Tri-Mix deep-level diving and ROV filming.
Our highly skilled and experienced ski-operatives can use all camera formats safely whilst skiing. Smaller cameras such as the Canon 5D offer a fantastic mobile shooting option whilst still retaining broadcast quality, their smaller size making them particularly versatile and creative. Mini-Cams added to helmets and ski-boots can offer dramatic additional shots.
It’s about fitness, experience, the right equipment and a level of creativity. Our operators have what it takes. From Everest assents to Mount Killi, K2 and trekking in the Andes and Atlas mountains, we have the equipment and crews to cover your expedition.
From night-vision cameras, bag, jacket and glasses camera’s through to surveilance style set-ups, we can adapt our camera units to get the shots you need. Our engineers regularly produce one-off filming rigs and have become experts at achieving covert camera solutions.
We can supply, install and engineer a variety of mini-cam set-ups using the latest HD camera heads, lipstick-Cams, covert cameras and micro-Cams. We stock a full range of popular mini-cams including, Polecam, Sony MC1, GoPro, Toshiba, Pulnix & Panasonic HCK-10.
