What should I complete my gear with? In: Cameras Posted August 23, 2014 Hi again, thank you for your input! I'm sorry that I didn't mention what experience I have. Sure, I'm no pro but I've actually been shooting some, mostly hunting and "Youtubechannel show"-stuff though. I started out, as I'm sure many others have, by doing photography a couple of years back and after a break from that I'm now starting to feel the urge to be creative with a camera again, only this time with focus(no pun intended...) on the video part. I've felt the need for some certain things while shooting, the lenses and tripod that I mentioned in my original post is by far the most pressing needs. I've also at some points felt the need for a slider, external monitor, new 70-200 etc. Alas if only for the extra mile kind of things and not as often as the former mentioned gear. That's why I'm not sure about what I actually want/need first. I'm sure that I'm going to buy it all sometime in the future. Although, I must say that I believe that you're absolutely right in the sense that I need to get out and make some more productions, especially in the same field that I'm thinking about starting my business in. I'm sure that hunting videos and business commercials won't demand the same kind of gear list. So perhaps I will save some of the money anyway. Thank you! You already have a long list of gear, but the only lighting gear mentioned is a flash. That is, no continuous lights for video. Those might get handy at some point, when you start working with the small companies at their premises. You must have missed the part saying that I have some lighting already. I didn't specify but right now I've got four halogens with soft boxes(a bit weak in brightness but hey, they were cheap) and two LEDs. One larger with 600 LEDs and one smaller with 160 LEDS. I think that will be adequate for the most part. The renting tip is also good, though unfortunately I live in a small town and I'm sure we haven't got any film making rental business here(Yet...).
