Here is my complete and up-to-date set up for recording videos and also doing FB Live Videos.
The equipment includes:
• My iPhone 7
• Wireless Lavalier Mic
• Mic adapter to iPhone and the lightning attachment from Apple
• Dual-Head Lavalier Mic for FB Live interviews or Videos with two people
• Tripod with Smartphone mount
• 2 LED Lights
• 2 LED Light Tripod Stands
• Adapter to mount LED lights on Tripod (maybe you don’t need this if you order diff tripod stands for the LED lights). I had to retrofit
Excluding the cost of the iPhone that I already owned, my total cost on Amazon was about $235.
If you need to start more affordable, you can probably get away with only 1 LED light and maybe a different option on Wireless Lavalier Mic. But at $235 I feel like I have a very functional set-up to produce quality enough video. From there it is about good content and consistency.
Once I shoot the recorded videos, I send them to Fiverr and for $6 they edit it and put my intro and outro on the video.
