Hi All, I've started saving up for Just bought a Canon 60D for videography (also photography). The video usage will be for me and my friends to film our band and also were writing some scripts for a comedy sketch show. But also for work (product demonstration w/ voice overs). Here's what I got: Canon 60D w/ EF-S 18-55mm kit lens & 50mm f/1.8 prime lens Rode VideoMic Lowepro Nova 160 2 Non OEM Batteries UV filters Later on I see me getting: Canon 17-55mm f/2.8 (Second Hand) A better tripod (Much later) A mic upgrade I do lot's of DIY so will be making all sorts of rigs This is what I see me making in the near future: Aluminium telescopic crane (2m+) Joystick Controlled Crane Head Tripod Dolly system Rail dolly system Does anyone know any essentials that I should buy also? Or corrections to what I'm thinking? I'm new to "good" video equipment as I'm using a Kodak Zi8 (piece of rubbish in most situations) and a microphone my parents bought 10 yrs ago for £20. The good equipment I own now (as of recent) is a macbook pro, a firewire audio interface, and an SM58 dynamic mic (for band) Edit: Corrected to display what I bought.
