    I was curious what you all use for your set up? (Camera, lights, mic, etc). I’ve already got a pretty good mic and camera set up (I use a RODE mic (also a Neewer NW-700 microphone for voice overs) and a Canon Rebel T5 as well as the Rebel T5i also my iPhone). But my main issue is lighting. I’m currently just using natural light, the overhead regular room light, and a desk lamp. The lighting looks alright in my videos but I still feel like it’s too dark and/or reflective. I was thinking of just purchasing a work light or two. Something cheap but also powerful. I’m not sure though what do you think? Also what do you use for lighting (and everything else)?

    As I don't yet have a sufficient camera, all of my videos are merely screencasts. I use OBS for screencasting, Reaper for voiceover recording and processing (only few of my videos contain VO as my voice just sounds ugly). For video editing I use DaVinci Resolve 14 (limited version) and Vegas Pro 14.
    My microphone is a cheap chinese SM57 knock-off, guess I'll buy a Rode NT1-A soon.
    Not sure yet what kind of camera to buy...

    For my gaming videos I use:
    iPad Pro where I can easily record the gameplay with iOS screen recorder although you need to be careful because sometimes audio not be on sync
    I have a cheap mic but I guess is doing the job, it's a TakStar. I saw a lot of reviews where people recommended this microphone.
    I use Final Cut for editing and that's pretty much it.
    So far, I'm doing faceless videos but in case I need to show my face I have al old Nikon camera that will do the job.

    I highly recommend you buy a lightning setup for you videos, it's really cheap and it will make a huge difference.
