This is the first of a series of videos about making videos. We’ll go over everything I use to make my YouTube videos on a shoestring budget, including camera gear, accessories, and software.
Samsung NX300 Camera:
GoPro Hero Camera:
All my accessories:
In this video we go over my camera gear. The Samsung NX300 is a mirrorless detachable lens camera, which basically means it’s a cheap version of an SLR. The primary purpose of this camera is to take pictures, but I use it for video because it happens to look really nice. At 60 frames per second at 1080P, I can actually get some damn good footage from this.
The cheapest GoPro Hero made still has a really nice picture. At 30 frames per second at 1080P, it’s not the slow motion workhorse that the more expensive versions are, but it still has a nice wide angle lens and crisp video. I use this as a “B” camera for getting a shot at a different angle.
The iPhone 6+ (and many other cameras from both Apple and Android) is capable of some really good video. The iPhone can shoot at 240 frames per second at 720P, which is good enough for doing super slow mo shots in YouTube videos. For normal cinematography, the iPhone has 60 frames per second at 1080P, which is also not to shabby.
