Canon C300 Mark II

This is a step up from the Canon C100 Mark II, with more features like 4K, slow-motion, and more color options. It's also more bulky and has more detachable parts, so it's better for sit-down interviews and use with a tripod.

Canon EOS Rebel T7i

DSLRs are the go-to cameras for many smaller production crews right now. They give good images, they're easy to handle, and they're not too expensive. This one is a good starter DSLR.

Canon C100 Mark II

This camera is pretty portable, fits with many Canon lenses, and grips well for hand-held filming. It does not shoot 4K, but for the price, it has great color and image quality.

Smartphone lenses

You don't need these, but if you want to have more versatility with your smartphone, they're a good addition. You'll be able to capture wider and closer shots than you would with just a single smartphone camera (if you've got a wide-angle lens on your phone already, good for you!)
