Resources and Card Stuff

I am routinely asked what kind of equipment I use to create my TTM videos for YouTube, so I thought I would my gear list up as a resource for everybody to refer to. If you have any questions about video or podcasting gear, please send me an email or use the contact form and I will do my best to answer them. You can also find more resources directly on Amazon in my Custom Amazon Shop.

Video Gear

Camera – Canon T7i

I use a Canon T7i for all of the video where it is me on camera. I love it because it has a flip out screen, which makes it easy to compose the shot while I am sitting behind the desk. It has served me very well.

SD Cards

I use a variety of SD cards for the camera, but have had the best luck with PNY cards specifically designed for HD camera.

Microphone

I have a microphone mounted to the flash mount on top of the camera. The microphone I chose is the Rode VideoMic Pro. It has a great sound and is something I can use for other projects as well. When using the Mic, I set the gain switch to be in the middle. It took a bit of experimenting to find the correct settings, but once I did, it was a lot easier than messing with a lapel mic.

Lights

For lights I use a simple 2-point light system rather than a traditional 3. The light kit I chose is called the PBL STUDIO PHOTOGRAPHY VIDEO LIGHT KIT CONTINUOUS LIGHTING KIT VIDEO LIGHTING EZ 24″ x 24″ SOFTBOX.  It does remarkable well for such an inexpensive kit. The bulbs are 5500K daylight bulbs, which helps me adjust the settings for the camera, making everything look like natural light.
