Accessories for 5D mark ii?

Hi guys. Just got my mark ii body. I need help in figuring out what to get for wedding shoots. Should I get the Ikann flycam 2? I would like to attach some kind of light to the mark ii, a shotgun mic, probably external monitor, some kind of system for steadiness, and perhaps xlr inputs (beachtek). What is the best system for these accessories that will also allow my camera to be steady. I already have a merlin steadicam but don't want to be shooting on that all the time. THanks

Hey Victor,

Are you doing 5d2 exclusive for weddings or are you supplementing with another cam(s)? It is tricky to shoot 5d2 weddings solo. Santo from Paper Cranes does some beautiful work, with 2x5d and a 7d. Personally, I use a 5d mixed with two traditional cams though I'm moving towards full DSLR with at least two shooters.

I am supplementing a XH A1. I will have all my audio plugged into the XH A1. MY 5d mark ii needs a good steady system where I can attach a few accessories (monitor, focusing system, perhaps light, etc). I already have a merlin steadicam but don't want to be using it all the time. What do you guys recommend. THanks!
