YouTube 6 Equipment

So after you’ve watched all the training, you’re probably asking yourself what do I need in order to make this work for my creative business?  Honestly, not much.

You can make great videos with an iphone 7 or higher and a light kit.  Will other gear make it easier for you to record? Yes. But be careful not to purchase items you don’t need.

When I first started I used an iphone 7 & a desktop tripod with phone holder. But you can also zip tie or bungie your phone to a can of spray paint if you don’t have the money to invest in gear.

Now I use a mevo, mevo boost, ipad or iphone 8 to control the mevo camera, and iphone or laptop to watch the comments and a floor tripod.

Below is a list of items I use for all of my video recording.

Mevo Plus

Mevo Plus Bundle with boost (if you want to wire directly into your router and increases battery life)

Logitech HD 1080p at my computer for trainings

Cannon XA10 (for professional videos)
