I'm going to be in the field, and have never shot so much video remotely (or not that much either at once).

Likely it will be about 3-4 hours of video, lots of start and stop, focusing, interviews, b-roll video, etc.

How many batteries would you bring (I have 4 Batteries)?

Two camera bodies.

How much memory (I was thinking about 64 GB or more)?

I'll also bring a grey card, reflector, lenses, flash (For night photos if needed), digital audio recorder, with extra AA batteries.

What am I missing or mis allocated for this? I'm trying to plan well. Suggestions?

Good question, I'm wondering the same if I need to buy a battery grip.

I don't think a grip is needed, I can just swap out for a fresh battery. I'm thinking a battery will run about an hour and 15 min or so in Video mode.

I don't actually own a dSLR that has video capability, but to find out how many batteries and cards I need I would run some tests to see how much video I can get on my largest card, and how much battery is used doing so. Extrapolate from there how many cards/batteries you'll need and then add an extra of each to be safe.


Did you lose Digital Photo Professional (DPP)? Get it here (external link). Cursing at your worse-than-a-map reflector? Check out this vid! (external link)
