It's been a bit quiet in this thread as of late. An additional battery or two would probably be a good idea. I went with the Wasabi kit
- two higher capacity batteries and charger. Someone earlier in the thread mentioned some slight "wiggle" issues with the Wasabi battery, but I'm not experiencing that at all.
I too am trying to determine what UV filter and lens hood to get. I'm too much of a newbie at this to make confident decisions. For example, does the filter screw into the camera, then the lens hood screw into the filter? See? Total newbie type question. I want to avoid vignetting issues as well. Just not sure what I should be considering.
Finally, looking for a decent video bag to hold everything - camera, batteries, charger, cards, hdmi cable - something to keep everything together. Trying to decide between the Lowepro Edit 130 and 140. Not sure if the 130 will be too small or the 140 will be too large.
