Video Cameras
Canon Vixia models HF M40 & M41
These are great Prosumer video cameras. The M series performs extremely well, and are so highly rated, they sell for more USED than when they were new! I use the M40 as-is, but I have attached a Raynox WA lenses to increase the field of vision on them. Some people bitch about the touch screen of the M's, but I use a stylis on a lanyard around my neck, works fine for me, though a focus ring would have been a welcome feature.
Canon Vixia model HV-30
A legendary consumer HD camera, by Canon.
A fine beast that set the standard for HDV tape, I use it for all my VHS and AV to DV conversions, but break it out for a third HD camera when needed.

Fuji Finepix WD-3D
I won this oddity in a video contest. I say oddity because 3D still has not become mainstream in creating and distributing "home-created" content. The best thing about this is the neato screen as you do not need viewing glasses. A fun curio, this camera, but I use it most now for my work construction photos, as it's smallish and fits in my briefcase, and can take 2D photos/video.
Lighting:
Yongnuo YN0906
These lights, of which I have 2, perform really well, use AA batteries, and come with magnetically attached color lenses, clear and amber, both diffused. The lights also have terminals for a hot-shoe, and I can use them as flashes on my Olympus.
Lighting:
Recently I stepped up to better lighting with Smith-Victor, hard shell lighting, gloss black on the outside, and nice reflective brushed aluminum on the inside. Using a 10 inch, and two 5 inch units, each with an opaque plastic diffuser, they sit nicely on their air-cushion quality stands and LOOK as good as they work. Additionally an overhead hair-light with sandbags on the feet to allow me to s-t-r-e-t-c-h my swing-arm way overhead without danger of tipping the rig over.
