Here are a few of my favorite things, all aside from actual cameras and lenses.

SMALLRIG Top Handle Grip Cold Shoe Mount for Digital DSLR Camera

This handle attaches directly on top of my camera and helps me grab steadier handheld shots when I don’t have the time to set up a gimbal or large setup. I love how simple and easy the design is – it doesn’t complicate or add any weight to my setup. And it really helps make those handheld shots much smoother. Great if you are trying to maintain a low profile or simply don’t want to spend a lot of money on a gimbal.

Best On Camera Microphone:

Rode VideoMic Pro+ Compact Directional On-Camera Shotgun Condenser Microphone

If you are shooting home videos, family vacations, documentary style films where you are always on the move, this mic is a great choice. It fits on the shoe mount on top of your camera and picks up high quality audio so you don’t have to worry about wires and extra connections on your characters.

Best Small Screen Monitor:

FEELWORLD F7 7 Inch DSLR On Camera Field Monitor

Much of what I shoot is outdoors and being able to see my camera’s back screen in the bright sun is almost impossible. This monitor makes it so easy to actually see what I’m shooting while on the move with a gimbal or handheld in the sun. It’s intuitive to use and compact.

Peak Design Leash Camera Strap

The proprietary connectors are so perfect for video shoots when I want to easily and quickly take off my camera strap to put the camera on a slider, gimbal, or tripod. You can do this in seconds by clicking these notches on and off. Also super quick and easy to adjust the length of the camera strap on the fly.

Peak Design Wrist Strap

Perfect for smaller sized cameras where you just want easy access and ability to hold while you work. Also provides a nice bit of extra support for handheld video shots.
