Okay, so call me excited...but I've been running a small production company off of a small panny gs150. I didn't realize how poor the quality was until I borrowed my friends XL2.

Now I've saved enough for the A1 and just in time for a major trip to Tanzania, Africa!!! Afica in High Def!! Coming soon people!!!

I've got a list of accessories, please give your opinions on them:


(2x) BP-970G 7200mah batteries Link (http://www.bestbatt.com/Canon_BP_970G_Camcorder_Battery_Pack_p/bbbp970g.htm)

Circular Polarizing Filter (slim) Link (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=productlist&A=details&Q=&sku=133010&is=REG&addedTroughType=categoryNavigation) (or should I get linear)

White Balance Expodisc Link (http://www.bhphotovideo.com/bnh/controller/home?O=productlist&A=details&Q=&sku=358073&is=REG&addedTroughType=search)

On-Camera Light (I don't know which, I'd like LED so it would last a good amount of time but me thinks LEDs are weak, please let me know)

Then it all goes into a storm case im2720 Link (http://www.stormcase.com/StormCaseSizes/StormiM2720.htm)
Although this case can't be airline carry on, so if you know of one that will hold this camera and fit into airline carry on, please let me know.

Thanks guys.

Might I suggest a battery powered on cam light, being in Africa I guess sometimes recharging could be a problem? Especially if your out for a few days at a time, in that case you wouldnt want to be drawing power from your cam for your light?
