I'm debating on getting a mattebox but leaning toward a Coking filter holder due to price. Does the Cokin filter work on the Panny 20mm f1.7?

I am going to make a list of things I am sending my brother for a 9 month documentary. 2 people on motorbikes riding through India for 9 months.
Here is a shortlist.
2x GH1 w/ 25P patch and lpowell safe settings 40 Mbps AVCHD and 35 mbps MJPEG (Made in Japan 2010 body for lower fpn).
2x Olympus 14-54mm II lens (fastest lenses with Video AFS)
2x Rode VM with 3 sets of alkaline batteries
6x GH1 batteries
2x Giant Squid Audio Lav mics
2x 126 LED on camera Video Lights
2x travel tripods (Weifeng WFC-593 Carbon Fiber) - I will put up a video to show how these can be used as a shoulder stabilizer. Essentially it can be used for static shots and then the legs fold to a T - so it can be used as a crude but surprisingly effective stabilizer.
2x QR ball heads (I opted for Stroboframe as I got them on sale really cheap)
6-8x 16GB SDHC cards (waiting for Nov and Dec sales to buy :-) )
2x Photo Backup HDD (to save data on SD cards in between locations).
The reason for SD cards is redundancy. Once a card is filled up, it is backed up to HDD and mailed to a secure location.
When the HDD is filled up, it is copied to a larger hdd and mailed to the safe location. This way, data will be safe.

EDIT:- 126 LED video light from ebay, 160 LED video light and Z96 led light. These can take AA, Panasonic and Sony LiON batteries.
Any options for on-camera led lights. Preferably stackable ?

Something else that may be helpful. A direct source for all the Fancier and Weifeng tripods.
I think this is shipped from their factory or by someone close by. Pricing is really good.
Beebuyer seems to be a legit marketplace, with a few recent reviews. Perhaps you can wait until my order comes through so we know this place is legit.

Vitaliy. Can you recommed a good priced Quick Release plate ? Dont want to pay 20-50 bucks for a QR.

Just wanted to say thanks to Vitaliy and everyone else for the hack. I haven't even been able to put it to use yet though as my crappy sd card keeps failing on me. I guess a San Disk Class 4 8gb card is just too slow for it.
Thanks again guys!
