Hope this is in the right forum. I am a new small business owner. I have purchased a Sony PMW-F3 kit with lmost anythign a producer could want (lol I hope). There is no audio componant to my kit and my question was to other professional camermen or rental houses. The question is how important is it for ME to invest in audio equipment (stick mics, booms, lavs...everything)? Will I hurt my business opportunities by not having an audio package and forcing the producer to hire an audio guy with equipment? I do not hire myself out as a cameraman, I only rent the equipment.
Any thoughts? Ive been given some advice but it is coming from someone who is trying to sell me their old audio package.
