Accessories for HD200

Hello everyone,
I'm getting very close to purchasing a HD200 and I wanted to see what accessories everyone recommends.

I'm specifically wondering about a wireless mic bracket; porta brace or similiar glove / body armor; etc. Also, what tapes do you use?

Any other info would be helpful.

I use and recommend the JVC branded ProHD tapes, preferably the white/cream cases.

I didn't bother with wireless mounts and just applied velcro to the backs of my batteries and wireless receivers. Works exceedingly well for me.

If you ever use the oncamera mic for wild sound, I'd recommend replacing the toy it comes with. My Sennheiser ME66 lives on the camera when it's not on my boompole.

Thanks. I like the wireless mounting box. It makes it easier when I mount 2 wireless mics on my camera. Also makes it easier when I quickly need to change batteries and I can always leave the receiver attached to the camera.

Thanks for the mic suggestion. I have a boom mic that I rarely use and I might as well put it to use.
