Equipment & Resources for YouTube, Blogging, Podcasting

This is my collection of video/audio equipment & blogging resources and that I use and recommend. Support me by buying through these links if you’re interested in anything!

Cameras

Canon EOS R (2019-present) – My main camera for shooting YouTube videos. Love the quality zoom L lens.
Sony A7S II (2017-present) – My Sony full frame mirrorless camera. A powerhouse packed into a small form factor, I’ll take this camera traveling for creative video captures.
Canon EOS 80D (2016-2019) – My previous main camera for “talking head” shots. Great for its fast and accurate auto-focus, which is really convenient for video.
Canon G7X Mark II (2018-present) – My point & shoot camera for traveling, small enough to take anywhere.

 

Lenses

Sigma 30mm f/1.4 – My go to lens for the Canon 80D. This lens is so beautiful. F/1.4 opens up the aperture to let a lot of light in and create that beautiful depth of field.
Sony 24-70mm f/4 – My all-purpose lens for the Sony A7S II. My main lens for travel photography, vlogging, and videography.

 

Accessories

Manfrotto 290 Xtra Fluid Video Head Kit
AmazonBasics 60-Inch Lightweight Tripod
Sony Lightweight Compact Tripod

 

Audio

Zoom H6 Six Track Portable Recorder – I use this to record audio for videos & sometimes podcasts on the go. 
Rode Videomic Shotgun Microphone – Mic that goes on top of my camera to record audio for videos.
Rode NT1 Kit – Mic I bought originally for recording vocals, now I use it to record my podcasts.
Focusrite Scarlett Solo Compact USB Audio Interface – Interface to connect my Rode NT1 condenser XLR mic to my computer.
Beyerdynamic DT 770 PRO Studio Headphones – clouds on your ears. I bought this for music recording and producing. Now I use these when I’m recording my podcasts.
