OK, this is my first venture into using my Canon GL2 as a money maker. I plan to start filming weddings.
However i need some serious hand holding on what accessories I should purchase in order to get the best quality product.
8 Hour Lithium Rechargeable Battery f/Canon
Canon VL-10LI On Camcorder Battery Video Light
DM-50 Directional Stereo Microphone
Sennheiser MKE-300 Professional Microphone
SGM-1X SHOTGUN MICROPHONE
if it can be connected to the Canon GL2
Schriber Acoustic SA-568
Deluxe Fluid Head Tripod
GLIDECAM 2000 PRO
Any opinions would be greatly appreciated

I can tell you just by looking at it that is a cheap crappy photo tripod. Find another that has a real fluid head. A true fluid head will look much more substantial compared to the one that is on that site. If youve got the cash a monfroto 501 head and a decent set of sticks would do you much better than that.

There is the place where you start and a place that you are going to. If you buy the cheapest components, you will end up throwing them away. If you can get good enough components to last a few upgrades you'll be better off. If you can get good sticks you can upgrade the video head. If you get a decent microphone you can keep it when you add more. Good quality products can be resold or repurposed. The GL2 is a good camera. I'd go for a decent set of sticks with a decent video head (I'm thinking you'll eventually will go multicam and this will be your second camera and tripod). Get a Tascam D40 and use that for your audio, hide it close where you need it and sync it in post. Eventually you'll need a shotgun and wireless. Gerry
