Today I have been looking at film equipment. I have to consider purchasing reliable products but also have to consider that the equipment might get stolen. So not to spend TOO much money is key. One nice camera, a couple small cheap cameras, a couple lights, and a few microphones seem perfect. After much research on a camera, I might settle on the Canon 7D body then invest in nice lenses. Since this will be a documentary I will invest in a nice zoom lens. I was recommended a Canon EF 17-40mm F/4L Ultra Wide Angle Zoom Lens from a gentlemen at Tempe Camera in Tempe, AZ. I was also recommended a Canon 50mm 1.8 Lens from a friend to shoot anything in need of a shallow depth of field, like interviews, artistic close up shots of soccer balls or flowers in the wind.
Also found this really cool 1940’s travel film on the Pan American Highway.
