A friend called me and said he wanted to get a camera, some lenses a microphone, tripod and lights. I asked him his budget and he said he was working with a $1,000.00 US dollars. After I finished laughing I did some research and this is what I ended up buying him. I tested it all and I was blown away so I thought I would share.

I am waiting to see his work, but he has already called and said he got his paycheck so he has a few more hundred to spend. What else does he need? Any ideas:

He said he bought a 12x12 softbox for his light and loves it. It cost him $19 on Ebay.
