Well, personally, I'd lose the part about the equipment you own. The only reason to advertise that is if you plan on renting it out to others. Otherwise, the point of your resume should be to sell yourself for any projects no matter the medium necessary. By showing prospective Producers that you own such a small prosumer camera, you may inadvertently be lowering their expectations of what you're capable of. Look at it this way, what would you think of a DP who owns an ARRI 535 and it's accessories compared with a DP who owns a Sony HDV? Which one would you hire for a big feature?

Just tell everyone how skilled, creative, and personable YOU are and sell your talent as a DP who is willing and able to use any and all types of tools necessary to make movies. Don't put yourself in a low-budget box if you don't have to.

But that's just my .02 cents. :)

Thanks a lot Brian, I think this is a valid point.
I have updated my CV and also changed the layout. Have a look at it if you like.

Cheers
