Of course this is completely my personal opinion, but I love the MacBook Pro 13" Retina Display. I use mine with Final Cut Pro X installed and I have even edited in the car and on planes in the past. It's a fast and versatile little laptop. A great buy.
On the flip side, the price is very high unfortunately and one major downside is that you will have to edit off an external hard drive. Otherwise the project files will eat up your storage in the blink of an eye. Other than that though there isn't a laptop I could more recommend!
I'd love the DGSS, but unfortunately it is just out of my price range at the moment, however should it drop in price any time soon I will defiantly get myself one! Thanks a million for your feedback!
Thanks a million!
You may find that the bride may be reluctant to wear a lav as it may be too visible on her dress. We have to remember that this is her very special day and she must be 100% comfortable. Personally I think the Rode VideoMic Pro shotgun mic would be a good choice. I've used it for ages and it gets nice audio provided you don't have wind to contend with and it is compact and on-camera which means you won't need an audio recorder. Obviously using a recorder will up the quality but not by a hugely noticeable amount.
Personally I think the best kind of camera stabilisers are those in the fashion of the glidecam/steadycam. My first stabiliser was a Neewer DSLR stabiliser which worked brilliantly with my 70D and it was dirt cheap on Amazon. Only something like £60! Compared to a Glidecam HD2000 it is lighter, still a bit on the heavy side but very manageable. It also depends on how many weights you need to balance it. But I would defiantly say try out a stabiliser that roughly resembles a glide cam as in my experience they are the most versatile and get the best results with DSLRs.
Hi Craig, thanks a million! Personally I agree. I do think the DGSS is a bit too pricey so I think I will be going with the HD-4000.
Thanks a million
