Video Blogging Essential Gear – Tony’s Tools of Choice

Some of my friends recently asked what I take out with me on a typical day if I want to make a video blog. This is sort of the bare minimum I take with me almost everywhere. Two GoPro Hero3s (since I love multi-angle video) a lightweight Canon HFM30 (so I can have a zoom option) and some poles to extend the GoPro from so I can get interesting angles. And if you’re going to extend the cameras to some distance from your person, then you’ll need a nice audio recorder to capture voice-overs and commentary. That’s why I almost always carry the Zoom H1 and a nice little Sony Stereo clip-on mic. What’s in your video blogging essentials kit?
Note: the Sony mic I use is the ECMCS3, available here: http://tinyurl.com/mzplak6
