YouTube Studio Tour & Camera Setup (Early 2019)
After creating over 120 videos (actually much more than that – there are plenty that I never published), this week I have to tear down my existing studio because I’m moving.
But before I start packing everything up, I thought I would give a little tour of my existing setup. It has served me well and has evolved over the last 1-1/2 years of creating YouTube content, from simple umbrella lights and one camera to a much more elaborate, but still surprisingly affordable setup consisting of inexpensive Amazon filmmaking gear to used cameras and lenses.
I go through what I use for my A-camera as well as overhead camera, lighting, redundant audio sources, and a few other little hacks that I have to make creating content just a little easier. Oh! And I actually uploaded this to my other channel which I am planning to dedicate a lot more time to this year where I can talk about filmmaking and video production outside of the sports tech goodies over on DesFit.
I have links to all the products mentioned in this video below the video of the tour of the studio as it sits right now. Thanks for watching!
