One of the biggest challenges is mounting equipment to cameras as they get smaller and smaller. for years I have used these Ktek Hot Shoe Plates. They are well built out of aluminum and allow velcro to stick to them very well. I can attach wireless, timecode boxes and any other things. Available for around $40.00 at your local camera or audio retailer
After being a Sound mixer for close to 20 years I have used many different brand and types of headphones. The classic recommended headphone for years has been the Sony MDR 7506 but I have never been of fan of them due to comfort and tonal quality. For cart based work and non fast pace bag work. I have become a real fan of the Audio Technica M-50 X Headphones for comfort , accurate sound reproduction and durability. One of the other positive attributes of the M-50 is the cable is user replaceable and comes with a straight/ coiled option depending upon what your doing. At a price point of under $150.00 they are also still cheap enough if you lose them its still going to be ok. So if your looking for a new set of headphones check them out from your favorite audio retailer.
The Schoeps CMIT has always been one of my favorite microphones with great reach, warm sound and low noise floor. I didn’t think it could be improved but they did by making it smaller. The only copromise is the fixed 4th order low-cut filter at 70 Hz so far I think it is a good trade off. I will post more after using this microphone more but so far it seems like a winner

Over my 17 year career I have used many types of headphones and by far my favorite is the newer ATH-M50X. They are very comfortable for those who wear and don’t wear glasses, and my favorite part a user replaceable cable. This allows you to swap between a straight cable or coiled cable depending upon what application you using them in. I also had another shorter straight cable made as well. I have been very happy with the headphones and use them for most situation estimated retail price is around $170.00 so check them out. They are far more comfortable them the classic Sony 7506.
