For me it was to marry the lenses and date the camera. Meaning that you should invest in your lenses and rent the cameras, because the lenses will last longer than the camera!

What about you? What has been your best gear advice?

My old school Canon FD lenses. 24mm, 50mm, 50mm macro, 135 mm, 300mm. That's a good set. They can be adapted to any mirrorless cameras. Vintage glass works. I just don't like the uber sharpness of modern lenses. I'd like to get the 17mm Fd next, but the wide lenses of that era are more expensive.

My second favorite piece of gear is the Ninja2 recorder. Finally getting into ProRez and 10-bit, 4:2:2 has changed everything for me. That the main reason I want a pair Blackmagic P4k cameras. Get all that internal to the camera.

To focus more on lighting than the camera itself. You can only do so much with poor light, but you can do a lot even on cheap phones with plenty of lights,
