I have to purchase some gear to shoot a travel documentary. My budget is under $10.000 (however, the more I save, the more I can rely on a safety net for any kind of unexpected expense/issue).
The situation is the following. I will be based for the most of the time on a sailing boat (rather big, quite enough storage space), but I will also spend some days travelling on the mainland.
Therefore, I am looking for something that can merge good quality and portability. I am aware of the fact that I will leave some of the gear on the boat permanently, so I can get also something quite heavy (eg a good tripod), provided that I also have to buy a monopod for any mainland experience.
Here is a list of things I thought I would need to buy:
- Pro/Prosumer camera (budget about $3000/$4000)
- good shotgun mike
- a couple of lavalier mikes
- a few lights for the boat indoors
- tripod + video head
- monopod + video head
- plenty of SD cards
- some filters (ND, polarized)
- batteries and miscellaneus
Is there anything I am forgetting? Any suggestions at all?
Thank you all!
