Buy a digital camera. iPhones work great too, but a digital camera is more budget friendly. I have an iPhone and a digital camera, but it has taken almost two years to pay off my iPhone through T-mobile. The plus side of an iPhone is that it comes with iMovie installed. You can edit on the go without a laptop and it is my new favorite thing. I use my iPhone and a digital camera but I have found lately that I use my iPhone a lot more.
Lately, I have been on youtube every day and I added this to my wishlist because it is chargeable. I love my current ring light but if you are on the go like me having a chargeable light for my camera is very important. The one I use at home is a Zomei ring light. We have a garage that I would love to escape to why my husband watches the boys but it has no electricity so this would be perfect for recording a video in a non-lighted room that has no plug.
The nice thing about the Zomei light is that I can record at night. I have a 3 and 5-year old so recording during the day, unless they are in it, is pretty impossible. If I need to create a professional video for a company without kids playing loudly I have to record at night. It also gives my videos a higher quality look. It took awhile for me to get used to it and figure out the perfect setting but I love it. You can attach your digital camera or any phone to it. I did have to purchase a tripod and light stand separately. If you are thinking about starting a youtube channel or you already have one I hope that you found this post helpful.
Being technology savvy in the Youtube world is very important as well. Technology is getting better and better as the years go by. I was just reading that a device called Smart skin can monitor the heartbeat of sick babies and stroke patients on Adrian Rubin’s website. I even saw a robot having an interview on the Today show a few weeks ago. Although technology can be scary at times it makes life easier and can help save a life. What is your favorite technology advancement?
