The February issue of Televisual is out this week.

The magazine features our annual report on the top 10 camera models for hire in the UK, with Canon’s C300 and Sony’s FS7 battling it out for the top spot this year. Find out which one has taken the coveted number one place in 2017.

There’s also a report on the ongoing film production boom in the UK. Recent BFI figures showed UK film production hit £1.6bn in 2016, thanks to inward investment shoots like Rogue One, The Jungle Book and Fantastic Beasts. Can this production surge be sustained though, with Brexit round the corner and a protectionist President Trump in the White House?

Elsewhere, we find out how post houses are coping with the huge amounts of data now swirling around their facilities, thanks to a rise in 4K shoots.

There’s also advice on aerial shooting, as well as a look behind the scenes at the making of E4 comedy drama Gap Year which had an extraordinary and challenging international production schedule, filming in China, Malaysia, Thailand, Nepal and Vietnam.

We also preview this month’s BVE, the top production kit show in the UK.

And there is a host of other articles and commentary, as well as showcases of the best of British production.
