25+ years experience as DP, editor, colorist and vfx artist.
there are a number of things missing but the most important is safety gear.
#1 must have : raincoat for camera. if it gets crazy, or just plain rains, or some one throws water, protect the camera. a _clear_ plastic bag is better than nothing and even pro's will use these in an emergency.
#2 helmet : anything is better than nothing, and something like a bike helmet is less challenging than a real combat type one. Kayaking helmets are small and solid, some other sporting ones are also ok. You can carry this *discretely* in a back pack and if things look like they are going to get serious, put it on.
3# Eye protection. Even simple wrap around googles from the work shop are better than nothing. Ones for skiing or diving are better since they will seal better against fun stuff like tear gas.
from here : real gas mask, and for the crazy stuff, body armor. skip the steel plate stuff because a projectile ( or fragments ) can travel along the surface of a steel plate and hit you anyway. the real stuff is expensive but if you do it for a living, its a cheap investment. I have also had private security hired on some shoots as well.
Water - not just for drinking but washing your face / eyes of tear gassed.
can't imagine any of this wasn't mentioned. protests can and do turn into riots sometimes. be prepared always and never assume it will stay peaceful. I've seen events turn different in an instant.
the tamron lens is pretty crappy. canon 17-55 is a vastly better lens + it has reliable AF..... but I'd take a light ENG camera. much easier to work with in these sorts of situations plus you can use it as a shield if you have too against thrown things. it at least gives you some more head protections on your right side.
as for mics, I'm pulling out my crappy one, not the good expensive one. If it gets water damaged or broken due to physical act, I'm not crying over a $200 mic. I would about a $2k one. ditto choices in other gear.
imposible to shoot ? really ? give me a 80 or 100:1 lens and some practice time. golf, polo, baseball, its skill.... and some reasonably high FPS. a mid range RED or F55 would do.
Wait until you see how expensive it is... And if never processed processed film before, the chemicals. Temps, mixing, processing times, disposal problems. For a while they sold mini E6 processing machines so the DIY crowd could get consisant results because doing it by hand was really tricky. Far more so than b&w which i have done. No thanks. You have no idea what you are missing. Kodachrome is a completely different process that's very complicated and tricky and can only be done on a machine processing system and even more nasty chemicals. It is gone forever. in case you forget film is environmentally nasty to process
There is one place this makes sense - a big light up on a condor where changing anything is a time eating process... Except this product cant take the heat of a typical hmi you'd be using in such a situation.... Not many leds good for space lighting. In a far more limited situation maybe a light mounted up on a grid where it could be hard to get at. Otherwise this is sort of a solution in search of a problem. $1200 buys 10 full rolls of diffusion which would go a lot further than one of these things - assuming thats something like a 4x4 in size.
total plagiarize...to think no one would figure out where it was stolen from.
that was meant as a satirical comment... and while _you_ can decide to re-classify lights, it pretty much flies against all industry norms. you remind me of this PA that called all light & C stands : tripods. He couldn't be educated to learn proper terms for things, was totally lax on safety, I got rid of him on 3rd shoot because he was just dangerous literally to be around and could never get the right thing asked for.
