Canon 960:This camera is an easy compact way to film any action shots. A highlight of this is that the files are small so it doesn’t take up as much space as the other options.
If your looking to film on the go these cameras are great high quality options for you…
IPhone: The iPhone has a surprising great camera to film with on the go and the best part is you don’t have to carry around a extra item! This is also a good choice if your on a budget.
Samsung Galaxy Camera: This Camera is also a fantastic Choice for on the go filming because if you have ever had a samsung phone it works just the same. The only down side is that its quite large.
Canon N:Another great Camera is the Canon N this camera will give you high quality shots of anything you wish to film. The best part is that is has built in Wi-Fi, so if you are using the same Wi-Fi source you can receive your videos immediately.
For Light I suggest simply filming during the day because natural light always looks the best, but if you are looking for a better option I suggest the
LP-1x1 5600K-Flood LED Dimmable Light.
-Dimming Control Control knob on rear of unit provides 0-100% dimming, with no color shift.
An optional, remote dimming control is also available.
-Multi-Voltage Power Supply Power supply operates with 90-260 AC Voltage, with the
appropriate plug adapter (available separately).
-DC Compatible An optional battery is available.
Sennheiser EW 112-P 112P G3-G Wireless Lav Mic Microphone Camera Mount is a great mic if you plan to do a YouTube video alone because it can simply clip onto you anyway that is convenient. However, if you plan to a group YouTube video the Rode VIDEOMIC Shotgun/On-Device Cable Professional Microphone is a better option. If thats not enough the Blue Microphones Yeti USB Microphone is another mic with great audio quality.
If your looking for simple editing iMovie on the MacBook Pro or the IMac is perfect for you, but if your looking for a higher quality job I suggest Final Cut Pro X.
If your looking to save money but still have a good quality video a few cheaper alternatives are…
Camera & Editing: Stick with the IMac or the MacBook Pro because they have a built in Camera a IMovie for Editing all in one!
Lighting: Try to film during the day, but if that’s not a option try some floor lamps they always work the best.
Audio: Again the IMac or MacBook Pro should already have that covered.
On the Go: Always use a IPhone for on the go filming because you can simply download the software to a PC to edit or edit right on the phone.
-Good Camera Quality: No one wants to watch a video that has terrible quality so use the cameras I suggested or even another camera you know is just as good.
-Have Personality: Make sure you make your videos interesting and be yourself. It helps if you do videos that you like instead of stuff other people want to see.
-Pop Culture: Pop Culture videos seem to great on the internet so if you have an opinion on something or just like to make fun or it go for it. People love to hear it.
-Collaborate: The best way to get subscribers is to collab with other channels, but make sure you both benefit from it. Only collab with people who have the same amount of subscribers you do.
-Never Give up: Your first YouTube video is not going to be a hit so just keep it up eventually you will gain subscribers.
