Panavision Asia Pacific has operated as the premier supplier to the film and television industry in Australia for more than forty years, servicing over 800 productions.
Ausfilm Member since 1994

Samuelson Film Service merged with the John Barry Group in the mid-eighties and traded as the exclusive Panavision agents for the region under the name Samuelson Film Service. In May 1997 the Samuelson worldwide film group was purchased by Panavision Inc. and Panavision Australia was born.

Panavision Asia Pacific is the only rental company in the region able to supply Panavision, Arri, Red, Sony, Panasonic and Phantom Flex cameras; plus a comprehensive range of lenses and accessories. Together with our Engineering, Electronics, Lens and Sales divisions, we can service productions of any size and budget anywhere in the Asia Pacific region.

Employing more than 100 staff, we have offices in Sydney, Melbourne, Queensland and Auckland and agents in Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea and India.
