      Well, my HV20 should be getting here this Friday if not tomorrow according to UPS. Now I must get some accessories. Here’s what I plan to get. Please let me know of better alternatives or what you think will be best for the
      Canon HV20.
      Case: Canon SC2000
      Tripod: Bogen-Manfrotto 725B $112.99(not sure at all though)
      Lens Filter: Canon FS43U II $59.95 (not sure how much I need now..)
      White Balance Cards: Warm Cards $65 *(warmcards.com, worth it?)
      Mini DV tape: Not sure, since I will get one brand and always use it…

      Those are the main Items I will be getting now, since I only have about a little over $200 initial budget, then $300 more next week (stupid new cc and their temptations!) I may not need the warm cards initially though, but will be getting the following accessories maybe in a week or two at most.

      Extra battery: Battery (BP-2L14) $80.00
      Chroma Key Backdrop : (not sure which one, would like double sided)
      Mic: (Azden SGMX Super-cardioid Shotgun)
      Steady Cam
      Lighting Kit
      Wide-Converter WD-H43
      Tele-Converter TL-H43
      Do the converts make a big difference for the HV20?
      Thanks for your help and advice on what to get, if I’m missing any neccesities, please let me know.

      Ok, this was a post from another forum, but I already ordered the back (Canon SC2000) and the Canon FS43U II filters. Really need to decide on a good tripod/ head and mic for this cam though. I’ll get you guys some vids of footage, you guys can request what type you want and I’ll upload it for you.

      You mention Steady Cam and tripod for your camera outfit. Very good.

      I don’t know what all your modes of filming are – but you might consider a look at one of the handheld and tripod mount setups made by http://www.Zacuto.com. Suggest you start at page http://www.zacuto.com/universal.htm. Very useful stuff and well made too.

      Here also is a link to a article (press release) for a new product called Newsman Handheld Package‘ you might find useful.

      Always fun opening a package you’ve ordered by mail. Good Luck!
