Get a UV filter to protect the lens, an extra battery and a case. For outdoor shooting, think about a polarizer as well. Where to buy? Check out dvinfo's sponsors.

those are all good and i thank you for your suggestions but the kind of accessories i was talking about are the kind that make the camera look bigger, kind of like a film camera. like when you look at rental house adds you could find my camera but it looks nothing like mine cause all the attachments and accessories and i have no idea where i can find that stuff.

For matteboxes, shoulder supports, rod systems, and follow focus units check out:

Cavision
Chrosziel
CineTech

ZGC, one of DVInfo's sponsers, is a distributor for Chrosziel through 16x9inc, another company. The other two you can purchase directly.

Anyone used the Cinetactics stuff???

I think this stuff looks pretty interesting and for the price, it seems like a good practical/portable solution(mattebox and french flag). I especially like the idea of being able to store this stuff with relative ease.

i am very curious about the cinetactics stuff, i haven't had an opportunity to lay hands on any of it.

one suggestion would be a mini-rover handle and a french flag, i just got a table manners french flag from filmtools.com and it has a threaded bolt at the end of the flexible arm that threads perfectly into the extra hole on top of the mini rover - mate thingie.


on the documentary shoot i did a week ago i wish i had the french flag, i had a setup where there were awful lights that i couldn't really frame out of the picture.

They are good products but you can save some $ by buying the oversized french flag and using binder clips to attach it to your stock lens hood. Very effective. And cheap.

A set of filters for the lens - polarized, UV. I agree with Peter about the Sennheiser wireless mic and a good tripod.

how much is the P+S Technik converter?

Should I even dream about getting that Beauty?

Visited the website and looks to be around $7 G's

Is there anyone else who sells this converter for less???
