Hey there everybody,
I'm a cinematographer but am getting into the steadicam game. I'm not planning to work as a full-fledged steadicam operator per-se, but more for use on specialized projects that I'll be DPing.
I have a test shoot coming up, where we'll be shooting with a stripped down RED Epic.
I'm planning to invest in this core system: http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=invoice&A=details&Q=&sku=732329&is=REG
I want to know, what other cables or accessories are MANDATORY for shooting with the Epic, and which cables or accessories would you reccomend?
What I mean to say is - I know I'll be gradually accumulating more specialized accessories and equipment over time, but for now, for this test shoot, I need to know if there are any other things I need to have a functional kit.
Obviously I need AB batteries + charger, and I think I'd get the low mode bracket as well (although I had difficulty determining whether I should be getting the mini low-mode kit http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/192878-REG/Steadicam_078_7393_01_Mini_low_mode_kit.html/pageID/accessory or the F-bracket http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/192877-REG/Steadicam_300_7901_3007901_Mini_Low_Mode_F.html/prm/alsVwDtl).
Any other thoughts or concerns?
