What Equipment To Use To Record Videos
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.
- 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
