Here’s my current setup for video on my 7D. The lens is actually a borrowed 50mm used for the shot (I currently own the 50mm f/1.8). I also have a crazy huge Manfrotto tripod I use when it’s not inconvenient to carry it around. Next on my list (probably a ways down the road) is to buy a RedRock DSLR rig. Those things are pretty sweet, but also kinda pricey.
