I've just purchased a Canon 550D and am after a recommendation for what else you believe a beginning photo/videographer needs in their bag. So far I have:
- 18-55 IS kit lens
- a nifty fifty 50mm f/1.8 prime
- MC UV filters for both lenses
- an 8GB class 6 SD card
- a photographer's bag
- a monopod
- a nice solid Manfrotto fluid head tripod
So... I think I need a blower (I've had the Giottos Rocket blower recommended)... and what else?
My primary reason for buying it was to upgrade my old PAL resolution miniDV camcorder, but obviously it will be good for stills too. Video will be a lot of amateur music video / podcasty type stuff in my garage bluescreen studio, as well as the occasional indoor/outdoor location work. Of course, I also want to expand my budding interest in stills.
Are there any "must have" bits you'd recommend?
