Gear we use in our Youtube videos

Our Youtube videos rely on a number of essential pieces of equipment to ensure high quality, entertaining content is produced each time.

Audio

We use 2 different types of audio devices to record audio.

Shure SM7B Cardioid Dynamic Microphone

Used in most videos, usually during voiceovers. The Shure SM7B is a very high quality studio-grade microphone.

You will also need an audio interface. We use the Audient EVO 4 to connect the mic to the computer, and an active in-line preamp to boost the audio levels. We use the sE Electronics DM1 Dynamite 1 for this.

Deity D3 Pro

For our “run-and-gun” microphone that can be attached to cameras or boom poles, we use the Deity D3 Pro.

Cameras

We use 2 cameras – a primary and a secondary.

Blackmagic Design Pocket Cinema Camera 6K

The BMPCC6K is great because it allows us to shoot in a 6K resolution. We can crop this down to 4K to either re-frame shots or simply capture more data from the sensor leading to higher quality video image. The colors and BRAW codec features are great too.

We have the camera rigged out with a Tilta camera cage, a Tilta follow-focus control, and our lens of choice is the Sigma 18-35mm F1.8 Art.

Sony A7III

The Sony A7III is a great camera for run-and-gun shots (due to it’s snappy autofocus) and 4K resolution. We usually use it for vlog-type shots and secondary shots to complement the BMPCC6K.

Editing Program

DaVinci Resolve Studio is our choice of editing program. There is a free version of Resolve but Studio has more features and allows for hardware acceleration on Windows.
