YouTube Cameras- Nikon D3300 or D3200
Currently I shoot my YouTube videos with the Nikon D3200 however for the same price you can buy the last model and get even better quality. My Nikon D3200 has been reliable and allowed me to produce results comparable to much larger channels and media outlets at an affordable price and has been easy to use. I’ve produced over 500 videos with this camera.
Upgrading to the Nikon D5500
On of Nikon’s latest DSLR Cameras’ the D5500 offers a flip out touch screen, amazing low light video quality and tack sharp images for photography and video. This will be my new primary YouTube camera this summer and the D3200 will be downgraded to a second camera angle and B-roll.
Podcast Microphone- Audiotechnica ATR2100
This is the current microphone used for the CSAT Podcast and is used by many Podcasters today for its quality and how affordable it is when starting a new Podcast.
Backup and External Storage- WD MyBook 4TB Storage Western Digital
This is the primary external hard drive I use for the YouTube Channel, Podcast and my client work. It’s reliable and can be configured for both Mac and PC.
Webcam for Live Streaming HD Video- Logitech C920
The Logitech C920 is the standard in Web Cams for live steaming, webinars and skype calls. The video and audio quality are amazing and it can handle low light situations indoors without the need for additional external lighting in most cases. It is also under $75 making it extremely accessible to most people.
Camera Memory Cards- Lexar 32GB 1000x SD Cards
Lexar makes some of the best memory cards on the market, the pros use them to shoot the Olympic games, so I trust them for the YouTube content and photography for my brand and for the work I do with my clients. These memory cards assure that I don’t miss a thing with their speed and reliability.
