Hello Sunshines! I’ve been getting a lot of questions about what bag I use and what equipment I use on shoots. This has inspired me to start creating additional videos on my channel that also show the behind-the-scenes process of my setup, tips, and tricks. I’m hoping that by sharing my process, I can help other filmmakers and #gearheads alike. So make sure you stay tuned and please subscribe to my YouTube channel!
While I plan to create an entire “official” video to show you really what’s inside my bag, I thought I’d also just link everything here for you. It is, after all, Amazon Prime Day.
1. My Camera Bag. I wanted something light, but also padded for all the important gear I needed. Holds a DSLR camera and you can adjust the inner lining to fit up to 3 lens. There is also a deeper top pocket that allows room–enough for my second GH2 camera or a telephoto lens! Bonus: Smart pockets that provide easy access to my smart phone when the bag is strapped to me, in addition to hidden inner strap pockets for personal items like credit cards, IDs, and chapstick. PLUS, you could also attach a small, portable tripod to the straps–although the one I currently have has whacked me in the head a couple of times. Need a smaller one!
2. My camera (s). Currently, I’ve been shooting with the Panasonic Lumix Gh4 and I LOVE it! I still bring my Gh2 (discontinued) with me as a second cam when I’m wanting another angle during interviews.
3. LENS! Currently have quite a few, but these are my favorite:
– Voigtlander Nokton 17.5mm f/0.95 Manual Focus Lens for Micro 4/3 Mount
– PANASONIC LUMIX G II LENS, 20MM, F1.7 ASPH., MIRRORLESS MICRO FOUR THIRDS, H-H020AK (USA BLACK)
– PANASONIC LUMIX G VARIO LENS, 14-140MM, F3.5-5.6 ASPH., MIRRORLESS MICRO FOUR THRIDS, POWER OPTICAL I.S., H-FS14140AK (USA BLACK)
– Zoom H4N Digital Multitrack Recorder
These are pretty much the basics that are actually INSIDE my bag, but I do bring a lot of other things with me on shoots that I have to carry separately. Feel free to comment below if you use the same setup or if you have any questions. Happy shooting!
