Suggestions for stuff to add to my kit
Since I am a film student living at home with no real expenses i like to add to my kit whenever I can. Its fun, and every addition aids my filmmaking a little bit.
Heres what I have right now:
Canon 7D Mark II with 3 batteries, 1 16gb SD card and 1 16 gb CF card
Gopro Hero 2
Canon 16-35mm F2.8L II
Sigma 4,5mm F2.8 fisheye (For action sports)
Fotega DP-3000 follow focus
Proaim Rapido DSLR Camera cage
Cheap Feelworld 3,5" EVF/Monitor from Ebay with a cheap magic arm
Røde videomic pro
Mini gorilla tripod
Super old flimsy tripod
Lens pen, tape and some basic tools.
Heres what i plan to buy as soon as i can:
Lenses (24-70, 50, 70-200)
Movofilms/Proaim/Something else generic swing away mattebox from ebay with 2 4x4 filter trays.
A solid tripod
Atomos Ninja 2 recorder
Shoulder pad, handles and a counterweight
Maybe a V-mount battery system
More LP-E6 batteries
Twin charger showing percentage
Later I will buy a H5 recorder and some microphones but for now I can borrow that from my school.
Way down the line I will also buy a westcott Bi-color flex LED kit.
Also ND filters somewhere way down the road when I can afford a good kit.
Is there something that i have forgotten that I should consider adding to my kit?
