He mentions three accessories as indispensable:
- a viewfinder like the Zacuto Z-Finder
- enhanced audio through Beachtek (internal recording) or Zoom (external recording)
- a variable neutral density filter (e.g. Singh-Ray) which allows you to film in broad daylight with wide aperture, which gives esthetic depth-of-field effects.
In the end, the Canon 5D and 7D are incredible cameras and I doubt if I could ever use a smaller sensor video-type camera again, but I’d love to have a body that uses the 5D full-frame chip with built-in XLR connections, audio meters and a viewfinder that accepts SLR lenses and attaches a LANC cable to it. Whoever puts the 5D-type chip into that body will definitely corner the market for years to come.
