First is the Microsoft Surface Pro 4. The version I bought is around $1300 and it’s the 256GB SSD, 8GB Ram, with Intel Core i7e processor.
2nd item I always use is a light meter. There’s different light meters.
Number 3 must have gadget is a smart phone. My phones are nothing special but having both iOS and Android allows me to get all the apps that us filmmakers use. The most common apps I use are the Cadrage Director’s Viewfinder which allows me to quickly setup my shots, camera angles and figure out what lens to use before I ever break out my big and heavy camera rig. Also I often use the Sun Seeker app to see what the lighting situation is going to be like at any location. Where the sun is going to peek through a particular window, when it will set and all that stuff.
Gadget number 4 is a multi tool. I love using the ones from leather-man. They’re great to help you tighten up loose parts on your camera rig. To help adjust things, remove filters, and just in general to help get stuff done when working with camera gear. A must have!
Last but not least gadget number 5 is a simple lens pan cleaning tool. It’s only $8 but you’d be surprised how often a production stops when there is a bit of dirt stuck on the lens. It’s why I always carry a lens pen in my pocket. You can dust anything off. Also if you blow some air on the lens and then clean it with the reverse side it will remove all the smudges and fingerprints.
