Pro-Gaff Gaffer's Tape
I've been using Pro Tapes for nearly 20 years and have never once been let down.
I always have at least one roll of this with me on production days.
The black 2" x 55 yard roll is the standard, but you can also get it in different sizes and colors.View on Amazon
It's a 15" piece of steel cable with loops at each end and a carabiner, pretty simple.
Keep rolls of tape, tools, or other small items handy.
And it can double as a counterweight.View on Amazon
Leatherman Wave+ Multi-Tool
You don't realize how often you need it until you don't have it.
The replaceable wire cutters are a handy feature in our line of work.View on Amazon
GorillaGrip Foldup Tool Set
Set of 3 folded tools, including metric hex (2mm-8mm), imperial hex (5/64"-1/4"), and star (T9-T40) sizes.View on Amazon
Streamlight Stylus Pro LED Flashlight
Small, lightweight, durable, bright - need I say more?
And weighing only 1.64 ounces with batteries, it can easily be held in your mouth (admit it, we've all done it).View on Amazon
T-Handle Slotted Screwdriver
Fits industry standard #7 screws used for mounting camera plates and other accessories.View on Amazon
Pelican 0915 SD Card Case
Great protection made by an industry favorite case manufacturer.View on Amazon
Zeiss Lens Cleaning Kit
It's easy to get the pre-packaged lens wipes and call it done. However, I firmly believe the brush and blower in this kit are far more necessary in everyday situations. Combatting dust and dirt is usually more common than smudges and smears.View on Amazon
Reusable ties, great for cable wraps, organization, temporary mounting, and more.View on Amazon
