Camera - Sony Handycam Digital 8 DCR-TRV *not sure on the numbers, but its old.
Mic attachment that has  gun and zoom modes.
Two radioshack $30-variety news-style mics.
Hi8 Panasonic Cam.... if I REALLY need it for a backup.
Tripod..... pretty nice, not sure what kind.

Two halogen worklights... big, bright and HOT. They are  nice, but hard to power on location Smiley

Computer- Mac, see computer  specs thread. G5, nice.

Black and white 5" battery powered monitor, just in case.

Bedroom wall painted blue for bluescreen.

Duct tape.


That's about it, aside from various stuff.

Bravo Wpro!  You edited a post!!  Good show chap!

So, equipment.

Cam:  Sony DCR-VX2000.

Mic (belongs to my good friend David): Audio Technica AT-897

Tripod: Bogen something or other, fluid head etc.

Steadycam: Steadycam Jr. at one point, but my Dad threw it away by accident. Sad  Long friggen story that I can't find it within myself to tell.  So now, it's the Bogen tripod held in a certain way.  Cheesy

Headphones:  Sony MDR-V600 Studio closed headphones.

Inspiration:  Energy Drinks (XS, obviously Wink.), White Chocolate Chip Flavor Hershey bars, and XS energy bars.  Between and During shoots, we take breaks to watch clips from our favorite movies of genre, and we listen to LOTS of weird al.  Wink

Other:  Gaffers tape, old sheets of various color for bounce lighting, office chairs for makeshift dollies, (works great on smooth terrains, though it makes a hella noise), and we like to turn on the framing guide in cam, but if we can't, I paste one over the top.  :-D

Works.

L8r.

Again, Bravo Wpro on the edited post.  Well done.

One thing I've found;

Garage Sales are your friend. Or, if you know how, you can build one, yes. They're actually pretty easy. Just a triangle of wood, with a rim (to keep the tripod from being pushed off) and wheels. Yay!

*cough*  Now THAT's debatable.

Cheesy

It's all about dollars friend.  

A 200 dollar JVC will not beat a 300 dollar Sony.

The 300 dollar CANON on the other hand will whip the 300 dollar sony.  :\

I've used JVC, Sony, and Panasonic.

Quality for dollar, Sony and Pan rival each other, but the JVC falls painfully underboard.

One thing about it though, JVC's make some inexpensive cams.  That's good news for you and me. Wink
