What Equipment To Use To Record Videos

Video Recording Equipment

On my YouTube Channel, I was asked the question “What do you use to record your video’s” – hence this week’s education slot.

Learning to edit videos was a steep learning curve for me, but I downloaded Camtasia Studio a few years ago and have not looked back.  I binged on their video tutorials over one weekend and learned all the main techniques that I needed to master to get my YouTube Channel up and running.

Camtasia Studio 8 – Editing Software

  • Easy to use – very much drag and drop functionality.
  • The effects are awesome
  • It integrates with both Mac & PC
  • The new feature for adding captions is a bonus if you are using your videos for social media content.
  • Price – in the region of £150

Samson C03U USB Microphone

  • Plugin and record – no messing around.
  • It is compatible with most other software. ie: When face timing, producing webinars, live streaming etc
  • There are a few choices of audio direction. This is great if you are interviewing people.
  • Price – c£80

Portable Audio Booth

  • I have the Studio Series Portable Audio Booth
  • Found on Amazon for £39.99 – click here
  • It really makes a difference to the audio – check out my video to hear the difference with and without the audio booth.

Pop Filter

  • A pop filter stops to “popping” or “spitting” into the microphone and makes a difference to the overall sound quality.
  • Purchased on Amazon for less than £5 – click here
