|Canon 10-22mm||Canon 60D|
|Sigma 10-20mm (Canon Mount)||Less expensive alternative to the Canon 10-22mm. If you don’t shoot Canon make sure to get the Sigma that mounts to your camera manufacturer. There is also the Tokina 11-16mm but I don’t recommend it because of its smaller focal length.|
|Canon 17-40mm||Canon 5DMKII/5DMKIII|
Tripods & Heads
Audio (for Video)
|Zoom H1||Portable recorder great for testimonials, video intros (I have two). The 2GB microSD card that comes with the recorder delivers ~2h53m record time, plenty for agent bios/testimonials|
|Olympus ME-15 Lav Mic||Lavalier Microphone for use with the Zoom H1 above (I have two)|
|Pearstone Tie Clip||Black tie clip to replace the silver one that comes with the Olympus ME-15 (I have two)|
|Audio-Technica Foam Windscreen||To help block wind noise when using the Olympus ME-15 (I have two)|
Lighting (for Video)
I never use additional lighting for video tours, and rarely use lighting for testimonials. For agent bios I try to position the subject by a window, and then use the LED panel as back/hair light to avoid having to use the Impact VA903 listed below.
Aerial / Pole Photography
Memory Cards / Storage
