The video in this post, are suggestions and what we personally use for recording videos. As mentioned above, these are tools you can add to your repertoire when the time is right.
Best Tools to Start Facebook Lives or Recording Videos
Unsteady footage is should be a no-no for recording videos as it can distract your viewers or make them feel like they’re riding a rollercoaster. Tripods are great tools for stabilizing your videos. The Foneso one is the one we have been using and to-date, we’re fans.
A tripod is generally the most affordable choice out of the tools. Many of them won’t go over $100 and do pretty well, depending on the weight of your camera setup.
Lighting equipment is necessary if you are typically recording videos indoors and in lower lit areas. And even if you’re shooting where there’s ample light, lighting equipment can modify the mood and even out the brightness of your setup.
Softboxes can replicate the natural, soft lighting from a window. This is due to the white panel that diffuses and decreases the intensity of harsh, direct light. This type of lighting gear is ideal if you want to add lighting without producing strong shadows for example.
Lights, Camera, Action.
Ring lights are a favorite among the video recordings world. When its ring shape gives off light all around a subject, it eliminates shadows from every direction, making anybody look better in front of the camera. This is why this type of lighting equipment was almost made ‘famous’ by the beauty and makeup vloggers industry. It allowed them to light up the face and eliminate shadows that tend to highlight poor skin conditions or otherwise.
Since then, it has been adopted by network marketers around the world, including us!
Webcams are the best choice for those who want an affordable, plug-and-play type video camera. Especially those who need to record in front of their computers for example. Webcams also make live streaming easier since they can be directly connected to your computer. They also create better quality videos than the built in camera on your Mac or PC.
Your audio quality needs to complement your video — otherwise it can eliminate the greatness of your video. Even if you record high-quality video recordings, you’re going to have trouble keeping your viewers interested if the audio is terrible. Built-in laptop or camera microphones usually have bad audio quality. typically, they are not able to record or eliminate background sounds effectively, so the next most important tool to have for recording videos is a good microphone.
