I'm new to the game, having just aquired an older Panasonic PVDV950. I'm planning to shoot at a convention held at a hotel later this year, for the purposes of putting it online.
I've got a couple questions:
First off is lighting. Obviously I won't have any control over lighting, although the camera so far has done decently in florecent lighting-not stellar, but not terrible. Would my best bet be to use lens filters? If so, which ones?
Second, I plan on using a wide angle lens, so that it won't look like a home movie, is that the best option?
Third, Tripod or monopod?
Lastly, the ever important question of sound. My current plan is a shotgun mic mounted on the camera. A couple interviews will be done, but much of it will be picking up speeches.

Keep in mind this will be over 2 entire days, morning to late night, so I'd like to keep my load light.

Thanks
