I am wandering what you all think is needed to have in your kit. From lights to camera accessories. What do you have in your kit?
What do you mean by "kit"?
There are many different events out there that would require different gear.
Can you be more specific?
Like I take my camera, shotgun, steady bag, leveling wedges stuff like that. Things that aid in the shoot…
Hummm. You’re still kind of vague. 😕
I guess for me, if I have a wedding shoot, I take everything I own (minus computers) that has to do with video taping because I don’t want to be stranded out there and not have the right gear with me. Cameras, lights, batteries, tapes, tripods, cords, chargers, mic systems, ect ect
If I’m working on a sporting event project, I just take a camera, tripod, batteries and tapes.
If I’m just going over to the in-laws for a birthday party, I just take my camera w/battery and a loaded tape.
As I said, it really depends on what kind of video job you’re going to be doing.
Is this what you’re looking for?
Concur on above!
Plus, for every job IMO, a small flashlight. I carry one in my pocket on all jobs at all times. Made of tough plastic, adding to durability because it gets gripped by my teeth from time to time, when both hands occupied. Also, it can stand on its own base on floor, table, top of equipment, top of bar, etc. and be easily aimed. Available in bright colors (easier to find … but not harder to lose!!!) from chain stores everywhere.
REGARDS … TOM 8)
My wife, Jean has a kit just like mine, but her bag is a little bigger and she carries a little more gear.
Slave driver! X-D
Tom: I should get a plastic flashlight. Right now I have a little steel Mini Maglite. It’s kind of hard on the teeth!
