I want to start VLOGGING – What camera setup do I ‘need’ ?

What camera setup do I ‘need’ ?

The short answer is anything you can get your hands on. Most of us have mobile phones and most of us could use just a mobile phone video to produce decent enough VLOG footage, however paying that bit extra for a proper setup will help your shots look better but also allow you to get better sound (a must for anyone serious about VLOGGING)

The FIRST thing to remember is it’s not just the equipment you own that makes you a good or bad VLOGGER, it’s the content you create.

Make awesome content that people want to see more of and you can just continue on your old iPhone or Android phone but at points you will want to upgrade for various reasons, e.g. average sound, poor low light, sharpness of images etc

The most important thing that lots of people forget about when starting is your audio, get an external mic if possible or at the very least just sit and listen to your footage and try and improve it on post-production.

Important things to remember with everything we post:

  • If you earn over your personal allowance (currently £12,570 a year) HMRC need to get their % cut (even if the money is in cash or from another country)
  • If you’re working for yourself / earning an income on the side you need to let HMRC know – There are numerous benefits but also some drawbacks
  • You need to always ensure whatever you’re doing is legal and not hurting anyone else – be careful and always think twice
  • Some income streams may require you to have DBS check, licence, insurance or qualifications before you can start to profit from it, do your research.
  • Be careful that any additional income doesn’t compromise your studies or main income/job
  • If you work for a company check your contract, if you don’t inform them you’re working on other side projects outside of work they may have grounds to ownership on this work
