Hey guys :), I hope everybody's in a good mood today !

Well, lets hear it folks! What is the most basic, vital gear you would need for a simple shooting day? (IE: interior with no exterior light sources).

So you all you've got is a 5d mk2 (or a 7d) and you can only get so much gear - what would you get?

Think of this in term of a small list of "most important" items on set.

Thanks !

Zahi.

PS: if you could include a list of firmware that would be cool.

A good heavy tripod with a good head. This light camera shakes as hell. Especially on some wooden floors.
Then an on-board monitor with false colour/peaking options, HDMI splitter to hook-up director's monitor (you don't want an operator, focus puller and director crowding around one 7" monitor), good FF, MB with some ND grads.
