Must need gear/accessories for a wedding/events (GX1)
Aug 2, 2012

Hi all

Briefly, I just bought a small GX1 kit to be an amateur second shooter, for the 'documentary' shots, at a friend's wedding. Apart from the body have

  • 16GB worth of fast cards (shooting raw)

  • Spare battery

  • PL 25/1.4 and Pana 14/2.5

  • A backup point-and-shoot (XZ-1)

  • UV filters

  • Flash (Need advice)

I have shot corporate events previously (as a volunteer, an employee) like parties and retreats. Have done well enough with just a dlsr, sigma f1.4 and a flash.

I'm reading advice on wedding photography, but it mostly assumes DSLR and kitting up. I'm travelling very light. So

  • Is there anything you'd suggest I'd get? What will I really benefit from? More batteries/cards I guess?

  • What's a good, unobtrusive and not too obscure (I live in China) flash?

FYI the wedding will have multiple parts, day and night, some of it on beach, some of it in jungle, also indoors of course.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-GX1
