For the gear heads!!!

Here is a list of some of the gear that I use in the studio, it’s something I get asked a lot, and unless otherwise stated, the links are not sponsored, but I have included Amazon affiliate links in case you fancy treating yourself.

Cameras

Main Camera for wide shots, B-Roll, face recording, and photography – Canon 77D

Top down desk camera – Canon 200D

Via the Elgato Cam Link my webcam – Canon Legria HF R76

My secondary webcam – Logitech C930

Lenses

I use the Sigma 17 – 70 as my daily driver, it also is what I use for the face portions of reviews

I use the Sigma 18-300 for my top down gantry shots via the 200D

One of my favourite photography lenses, the Canon Nifty Fifty, 50mm 1.8 for that sweet buttery smooth Bokeh

The Canon 10 – 18mm is fantastic for vlogging so gets used when I need to go wider than the sigma

Production Gear

For linking my camera to the computer, the El Gato Cam Link

For one touch application navigation and streaming, the El Gato Stream Deck

The smaller version

ShuttleXxpress when editing, I use a smaller cheaper version of this, but will be upgrading

Super ergonomic properly bluetooth mouse

SOUND

The Sennheiser MKE600 is a spectacular shotgun mic and attached to my gantry for everything

The Rode Video Mic Pro gets mounted on the camera for mobile recording, it does have a super annoying battery door though

The Blue Yeti doesn’t get used as much as it used to, but it’s a great backup USB mic

The Behringer 302 converts my Sennheiser to USB and allows a basic mix for live streams, it also gets used for a guitar feed occasionally

These Edifier speakers are my desk speakers and sound fantastic, especially for the money!

These Sudio headphones were sent to me to try out, and their lack of internal EQ has made them valuable for mixing my sound, and BT headphones are awesome

 

 

Phone

 

 

Samsung Galaxy S8, This bad boy takes some pics and video, also gets a lot of photo editing use with apps like Snapseed and Lightroom

 

 

 

 

 

Not really studio gear, but I flippin’ love my Tic Watch Pro smartwatch

 

 

 

 

Computer
Apple iMac (late 2014)
Apple Macbook Pro
Samsung Tablet

Software

For Live streaming I used to use OBS, now it’s all about Ecamm Live for Mac, I love it!! It makes Skype conference calls a breeze, and the support is fantastic.

 

 

       For all my video editing, I used Final Cut Pro X

 

 

 

 

 

 

I use Affinity Photo for all my photo editing on the computer

 

 

 

 

 

 

I use Affinity Designer for logo work and other ‘arty’ stuff
