I am going to use it mainly for Hip-Hop music videos, promos, and anything Hip-Hop related. I want these videos to look amazing. I know how to do color correction in Final Cut Pro, but I want my camera to also do a great job alone. I already have the canon battery grip with 2 batteries so battery life isn't an issue.

I have sufficient memory cards. What I want now is the right lens, lights, and whatever else you think I may need for Hip-Hop music videos.

So how can I get the best out of my Canon 7D?

Thanks.

I'm a DSLR enthusiasts but for photography purposes. I can tell you that the lens you get will make a huge impact on the quality of video. Depending on what angles you want to shoot at and your available light will makes a difference in what lens to use.

Can you recommend lenses for video?

I would get a really nice microphone. I'd get something like the Blue Yeti and record your voice separate from the camera, and then put it all together with your editing program.

I'm doing music videos though I don't need any camera audio.
