I bought the Z1E and....

I bought the Z1E and I need extra stuff.
I'm thinking about buying the next items:

Libec TH-950DV tripod (350 Euro)
Audio Technica 897 shotgun mic (300 Euro)
Kata Raincover CRC 15 (100 Euro)
Lowepro DryZone 200 Backpack (300 Euro)
(prices in holland)

Is it a good list?
Or should I buy other stuff?
Do I need something extra in the field?

Thanks,
Johan.

I don't know that particular tripod, but the rest of it looks good.
Be sure to get a Sky 1A filter for the front of the glass, don't buy a cheap one, get a good one.
Also consider a polarizer if you're shooting around glass, water, snow, or other highly reflective surface.

I got a Hoya UV(0) filter.
Don't know if it's ok, but I use it for protection of the lens.

You might consider a remote lens controller to use with your tripod, Johan. Several models would work well, including the Canon ZR-1000, VariZoom Rock, and the Zoe.

Bear in mind that the Audio Technica 897 is a nice mic but it is not thick enough to be held using the Z1 mic holder, you will also need to wrap something around the mic to hold it securely.
