/p/ Posted July 29, 2013 Share Posted July 29, 2013 I want to increase the quality of work I produce. I am currently working for a local business as a camera operator while I am studying but also want to slowly build up a business of my own. I currently shoot with a GH3 however I have money put aside for a BMPCC (who knows when I'll be able to get my hands on one) and also have saved a decent amount for stuff I don't yet have.. For example a decent audio setup. My main interest is shooting events and small documentary style shoots I am interested in purchasing several things but would like to hopefully get some good recommendations for different types of products. I'll be basing my set around the BMPCC for now but do plan to also get a BMCC or something similar down the track.. I will PROBABLY keep the GH3 for any slow motion stuff since I do really love the camera and I do like the slow motion effect. I'd say I am in the advanced enthusiast/Semi pro range, I wouldn't want to spend much more than $1000 on each product for now however I also don't need to stick to only the cheapest options. For example, I am interested in getting a steadicam since it will make my moving shots look a whole lot better. However I am not sure whether to go with something like the Steadicam Merlin 2 or Glidecam HD4000.. Not only that I am not sure whether to go with a Steadicam or something like a shoulder rig. What I already have is a decent Sachtler tripod so I don't have to worry about that for a while. I am just hoping to get some general information on items that may help me increase my (production value?) for shooting events and documentary style shoots. - Events could range from live events/festivals to weddings. Even recommendations on smaller items that may not get thought about as much.. For example several times I have thought "a gorillapod would have come in really handy right now" So.. I am going to buy a Gorillapod. This might be strange but I am also interested in any accessories that would be useful for shooting from different angles INSIDE of a car as well as accessories that would help for shooting outside of a car or other vehicles.
