Mr. Darren Rowse at the head of DPS (Digital Photography School) is asking a great question at a great time, “If I gave you $2000 to spend on camera gear – what would you buy?”
Camera equipment and technology obviously progress throughout the year, but the holiday season specifically encourages some of the best product research all year since shoppers actively compare their needs and product features to optimize their bang for the Christmas buck. No one knows equipment like the people who use it, and there’s no better way to learn new techniques than to share our own styles and preferences with our photo / video peers.
As much as it’s a fun exercise to compile a list of the perfect equipment setup, it’s also very helpful for the photo and video communities – regardless of your final objective, aka wedding videos, event photography, or just plain awesome home birthday party coverage.
If you’re anything like us and have a never ending list of equipment “wants”, this holiday season is the perfect time to break it out.
Here are a few items on our holiday wishlist to get you started!
1. Porta Brace CC-HD1B Quick Draw Camera Case. This light weight nylon with aluminum housing to shield your gear. Fits in airplane overheads as easily as it fits in your backseat.
2. Sachtler 0375 FSB-4 Carbon Fiber Tripod System. Chances are a tripod is one of the first items you bought, but other equipment has won the upgrades along the way. This is a splurge purchase that will last a long time… and it’s carbon fiber.
3. Sennheiser EW112-p G3 Camera Mount Wireless Microphone System with ME2 Lavalier Mic. A good wireless system is always in order and some extra transmitters/mics never hurt anyone. We’ve found the G3 is quite the unit for its price.
Technology is always a popular gift idea and these camera items are sure to please any video enthusiast.
