Aloha Camera People,
I have around $10,000 to spend on camera equipment. I want to shoot stills and video. I currently use a Canon GL1 and a Canon REBEL XT w/ 18-55 3.5-5.6 zoom and a 55-200 4.5-5.6 zoom. I don't own a personal camera and plan on buying a 5Dlll and the 15-35 L 2.8 zoom and the 28-300 L zoom(I can wait for an update on this lens).
I plan to use it on traveling, conventions, camping, Any other suggestions.
I also want to buy:
a video tripod, fluid head, monopod,
and a camera mounted mic.
p.s. I already purchased sandisk cards and a cinch camera strap $400
I think people are going to need a bit more information to make accurate suggestions for you. There are lots of options on all of these items and they vary in price tremendously. First off, I don't know about getting the 28-300, that's a pretty old lens and generally the more range a lens covers the worse the IQ. Plus if you are shooting video that is a very big lens, it may feel somewhat cumbersome once attached to a rig. The 16-35mm f/2.8 is a great lens, but you would probably be better off getting a 24-70 or 24-105 instead of the 28-300.
Video tripod,fluid head - Manfrotto 504HD kit
Monopod - Manfrotto makes some excellent video monopods
Viewfinder - Zacuto EVF or Z-Finder
Camera bag - too many options to pick one, go to the store and check them out yourself after you get your gear
lens filters - Variable ND filter (Tiffen or Singh-Ray) and maybe a polarizer filter
Card Reader - If you can find a used Lexar Firewire card reader, go for it. If not there is a company called Delock that still makes firewire CF readers for $50, but you can't daisy chain them.
Rig - Redrock Field Cinema Deluxe Bunlde or Zacuto Scorpion (these are $3k+ rigs once outfitted, but there are cheaper options).
Mic - Mitra 3d Mic Pro (awesome mic, but if $1k is too much for you then go for a Rode NGT2 and a Zoom H4N as your external recorder).
