Hi everyone.

I'm shooting a short character doc in Greenland in two weeks. I'll be on a ship/boat most of the time. My camera is C100 with atomos ninja star. Lenses are: Sigma 18-35 1.8 / Canon 24-70 F4 / Canon 70-200 2.8 and I have an old school Olympus 50mm 1.8. Do I need any special filters? And if so, which and what brand. Otherwise any suggestions are very much appreciated. Thank you :)

Whenever I have a shoot on a boat I always bring with me the following things: 

 

- Clear filters (just in case)

 

- Rain cover for the camera (you will really want that if you are on a small boat to cover your camera from the sea water)

 

- One of those wristbands which allow you go on a boat without feeling dizzy (this one is very important for me, the very first time I worked on a boat.. well, you can imagine :D, since then, every single time that I have to work on one, I put my wristband on and I feel fab!)

 

- Kemwipes 

 

- Towels

 

- And my rain bag with different boots and etc. 

 

Have a good one and post it on here if you want to when it is finished! :)

Thank you Miguel,

 

I'm not usually prone to sea sickness, but you are right. Two weeks is a long time feeling sick :)

 

Thx for taking time to write.

I don't know what sort of temperatures you will be dealing with but maybe have a plan to keep your batteries warm as well...
