A lot of gear we all gawp over — maybe even most of it — is surplus to requirements. But, some gear ends up being essential. What equipment is first in your bag in 2020?
Filmmaking and stills photography have a lot of overlap when it comes to equipment. That was fortunate for me when I started doing more video work as I didn't want to lighten my wallet. In this video by Sidney Diongzon, he goes over what gear is essential to him and always in his camera bag on shoots.
In 2020 I have a new addition which has cemented itself as a staple of my camera bag these days, and it (sort of) features in this video: an RGB LED light. Mine is the FalconEyes F7 Pocketlite RGB LED with honeycomb grid and softbox. I bought one as I had a few ideas in my commercial photography of watches it could be useful for. I used it for about ten minutes before deciding I was deeply in love and ordering another.
