If your camera didn’t come with a built-in light, consider picking one up. You won’t need it for daytime events that occur outdoors, but it will be indispensable if you’re filming an indoors event—especially at a restaurant, bar, or someone’s home. The light you choose should be one that attaches to the accessory shoe on the camera, and should be powered by a rechargeable battery. If your camera doesn’t have an accessory shoe, there is an alternative way to attach a light that will also help you hold the camera steady, using an accessory bracket.
