    The article seemed to be a really weak one. It was a lot more about that guy almost bragging about his gear. I,m not saying that it wasn’t well picked gear but the total cost for what he was using was easily in the 6000$+ range. <having that much money, you might have just as easily come to the same conclusions about what and when to use. But for most peaple having a 5dmk3 and 70-200 f2.8L II etc etc is just overkill for an interview, when the primary requirement is to have 1. good sound quality, 2 decent video qality(it's an interview after all, where there are lighter tolerances to how a picture needs to look.
