7 stuff that every youtuber needs
Youtube is one of the most popular and most successful medias. If you want to start uploading video on youtube you should have some equipment, This is the 7 stuff that every youtuber needs.
If you want to start the youtube as income source, you need to have camera. it can be your mobile camera or 4K handi cam, just have something that be able to record you in decent quality.
If you want to be youtuber that play games you, Camera is not your number one priority but if you want to upload vlogs or life hacks etc… you need to have a good camera.
In my opinion Microphone should be your first priority. It does not matter if you want to be bloger or gamer etc… you need microhone!
If you do not want to spend a lot of money for microphone, no one blames you. you can buy the USB microphone for start. USB microphones: “blue yeti”, “snow ball” and etc..
but if you want to have more advanced microphone with clear voice that going to be more expensive (XLR) and you should use sound card with them (without sound card they don’t have nice quality) for instance: “Shure SM 7B” , “Audio_Technica AT2035” …
don’t forget to put pop filter on them to filter the noises of “p”.
youtuber should be able to edit his own video you can hire someone to do it for you but some of videos like vlog and special videos should edit by youtuber (in my opinion) because it give videos personality .
so you can edit with “Adobe premiere pro” i recommend this software or you can use “sony vegas” or other software you feel easier with.
Thumbnail is cover of your video if i want to put it in another way it’s picture on your video the first thing viewers see.
Thumbnail is super important because it have very important job (attract viewers to your video) so make sure you make a nice one, you should use good software to be able make thumbnail i recommendation is “Adobe Photoshop” but as i said you can use other software.
lights (background,face ...)
If you are vloger make sure natural lights don’t be so shining in this situation your face going to be dark and viewer will see nothing but dark face and sound.
If you are gamer or recording in house make sure you have light on your hole face use “Ring light” or “soft box” use anything can lights up your face!
As someone recording in house you should make your background more beautiful it’s not that hard, buy some RGB lights with and place them in your background oh if forgot something! make sure you background is clean.
You want to be youtuber? you need system
every one of you need laptop or computer it depends on your goal.
you are vloger use laptop to edit your videos.
you are gamer and streamer use pc or console with pc (connect them with capture card) for playing your game and edit your video
As gamer you should have strong pc because it should handle the game and record game in the same time.
how many monitors do you need?
If you vloging use one monitor to edit your vlogs. If you are the gamer that uploads edited videos on youtube and does not stream you do not need the second monitor too! But if you are streamer you going to need two or three monitors.
