    1 I really need to find something to change internal mic to external, but not from sony.
    2 Some good lenses with m focus for cinematic short films
    3 tripod or monopod
    4 light
    5 some external viewfinder

    Would appreciate some helpful post about my topic.
    Thanks.

    2: I like the Helios lenses. You can find them cheap on eBay. I got a Helios 44mm for about £26 a while ago and it has really shallow DOF and looks generally quite 'cinematic'.

    3: Go to a shop and pick up a few tripods, get the feel of how smooth they are, how heavy they are etc., can't give any specific options but that's generally the best way to feel the build quality.

    Hope that helps a little

    Not really done this kind of work, so I don't have any real advice for you.

    However we have some very knowledgeable members who I hope can provide some good guidance.
