This article is an answer to a question I am asked from time to time about the materials I use in creating my YouTube videos and my courses on KBtrainings. I will subdivide these equipment into 4 different categories:

  • Video / Camera
  • Audio / Sound
  • Light and finally
  • Software

1. Video

Nikon CoolPix P1000

Nikon CoolPix P1000: One of the main cameras, most used for remote photos and 4K videos. This Nikon is popular for its Extraordinary Zoom which can enlarge up to 125 times. Its lens is integrated into the camera, making it a good option for travel and travel.

Canon 80D

This one is more for HD videos and the one I use 70 of the time. It is very popular in the world of content creation and has good image quality when the settings are well in place.

GoPro Hero 4

I acquired this camera for its lightness and smallness. I often use it for up and out takes too. She takes 4K videos.

Four colors: Green, Blue, Black and White

Fovitec Stand
