I have been filming events for the last two years, mainly conferences and concerts. I have always hired the kit. I am buy no means an expert, but I am getting better and capturing quality footage, I now am ready to buy my own kit.
Over the years I have used many cameras, while my favourite has been the EX3, that is out of my budget for now. I have a total budget of around £6000
This is what I have come up with:
Panasonic AG-AC160 - £3540
Pelicase 1560 - £180
2 Batteries - £140
Sachtler ACE M MS Tripod - £500
Rode NTG2 - £160
Rotolight Kit - £170
Sony UWP-V1/38 Lavalier Radio Mic - £450
4 Sandisk 32GB Extreme Pro SDHC Card - £400
Is there anything I have missed or should replace.
