HVR-Z7 Accessories

Just curious, what accessories is everyone using (on camera lighting, wireless mics, shotgun mic, wide angle lens, batteries, etc). I'm thinking of getting one and would like to know what else I might need.

I'm very pleased with

The bayonet mount works very well.

You will certainly need a wide angle lens, and I strongly advise this one: Sony VCL-HG0872K. It has a kind of mattebox included, with french flags, filter holder, etc... Sits on my Z7 and comes off only very rarely.

Count in some budget for extra 16gb compact flash cards too.

You'll love this camera: it delivers very sharp images, even if it's sensor is only 1440x1080.

Great lens, however only allows partial zoom through. The price you pay for .6x

This wide-angle adapter is 100% zoomthrough and extremely sharp. Good value for money.

Marty - you've got to ask yourself how much you love and admire barrel distortion in your shots. The 0.6x is quite powerful and a lot more compact than Sony's 0872, but the latter's pretty feeble fov increase means barrel distortion is kept in control.
