What equipment do I need for videography

The essentials:

CAMERA: My first camera was the Sony Handycam, which is probably most similar to the Sony CX405. I currently use the Sony a7m3. The kit comes with a zoom lens, which is probably your best bet starting out.

AUDIO: Rode wireless lav and on-camera shotgun mic. Rode just announced a dual-transmitter wireless lav mic system. I haven’t tried it, but if I didn’t already have a Sony version of this, I would totally buy this Rode system. I should add that good headphones that cover your ears are also important. I use Sony MDR7506.

STABILITY: Manfrotto BeFree tripod and Neewer shoulder rig.

ACCESSORIES: DSLR viewfinder (I can’t remember which one I bought, but it’s similar to this) and variable ND filter (make sure to get the correct size for your lens).


Lights: Neewer 3pt LED kit and reflector.

Drone: DJI Mini 2

Insurance: Athos
