I do a good amount of video stuff for keyboards, and I’ve never really had a concise place to list out everything I’m currently using, and the different paths of upgrade I’m looking at. So here it is.
Usage: Primary shooter for videos. Overhead cam on Keyboard Chores videos
Usage: Keyboard Chores and general use
Panasonic Lumix G Lens,
Usage: Keyboard Photography (all of that bokeh), and some minor video work
Fotasy M3517 35mm F1.7 Fixed Lens
Usage: Not much yet, still adapting to finding the right situations for this lens. Suggestions?
Usage: Face camera for the live show and keyboard chores.
Plugable Cardioid Condenser Microphone
Usage: Voice over, live stream microphone
Usage: Typing sounds, ambient sounds
PowerDeWise Lavalier Lapel Mic
Usage: live stream mic 2, A-roll microphone
HD Capture Card:
Usage: Livestream Primary Camera Capture
Usage: it’s a tripod. I’m cheap. I know I need to improve this one of these days.
Usage: On the overhead camera platform. Not actually used on the tripod.
Usage: This is what you see blinding you on my facecam during night time Keyboard Chores. I usually have this mounted directly on my camera. I don’t have this mounted on the side because it would cast shadows, but getting another one with probably solve that.
Usage: This is the platform I use for my keyboard chores when I’m working on a keyboard or just about anything on my desk. I like the overhead view it provides. I also use this angle to record my typing sounds with my microphone located the height away that a person would be sitting from the keyboard (except directly above and not a bit to the side)
Usage: Camera Slider for sideways pan shots
Usage: B-roll footage
I can go over OBS settings in another post, but I hope this was helpful for anyone who was wondering what kind of gear I use to make my videos.
I am personally always looking for recommendations for paths of improvement for my streaming and video production quality. I think the current weakest point in my setup is my audio recording. The Videomicro is cute, but won’t help do any heavy lifting if I want to capture better sounds (unless I want to attach it to a boom arm and hire someone to hold it over the subject all day long).
If you have any comments, suggestions, or recommendations on my gear I would highly appreciate it!
