Saturday Musings - Being a video blogger...

20200308_tech What equipment do you need to start video blogging?

In this video, I take you through the three camera setup that he uses for video blogging. This includes the BlackMagic Designs video mixer, video assist, sound mixing desk, cameras and microphones. This is a must view video if you have ever contemplated video blogging or have been curious about what was involved.

I must admit that it took me a while to work out which equipment to purchase as I had more than just video blogging in mind. One of my behind the scenes projects includes creating the audio book for my science fiction novel "Battleframe". This is a bit of a labour of love but one that I'm really looking forward to doing.

The equipment that I'm using includes:

  • Blackmagic Designs ATEM Mini - video mixer
  • Blackmagic Designs Video Assist - displays what camera I'm focused on and records the video.
  • 2 x Rode procaster microphones with desk mount stands
  • 2 x Rode Lapel micrphone that I plan on using mainly for interviews while on the move.
  • Behringer QS1222USB sound mixing desk
  • JVC HD camera for wide shots
  • 2 x Panasonic H-VC800 HD cameras
  • LED lighting rig to illuminate the set
  • Brickwall backdrop

I'm sure that as time goes by and I get a little more experience in this new medium that I'll update various components. What is for sure is that I'm having a LOT of fun creating the videos. Make sure that you like them and subscribe to my Youtube channel. I would also encourage you to sign-up to receive alerts from WhizzbangsBlog each time I release a new article/video. This is new feature that I've only just added to my site.

Have a great weekend and go and get creative!
