A common question I am asked is how I make YouTube videos. There is a lot I can cover when it comes to this topic. How long does it take me to shoot a video? What equipment do I use? What program do I use to edit? How do I film in public areas without feeling nervous?
In this video, I discuss the equipment I use both on location and in studio.
I’ve included photos and links to all of my equipment below as well:
Sony NEX 5R and 5N (the 5R is a newer addition which I would highly recommend over the 5N)
I use the same equipment in studio as I do on location except I also always use 2 850 watt studio lights as well as a blue and green screen occasionally to make videos like “Dancing for an Indian King” and “Peeing on a Public Bus in India.”
I have been using all of the above equipment for over a year now so I have been able to gather a pretty good opinion on everything I mention. If you have any specific questions about the equipment I use, please don’t hesitate to ask by leaving a comment below. I would highly recommend every piece of equipment listed above without hesitation, especially the Sony NEX.
Do you make YouTube videos? What camera do you shoot with?
