  • If you’re just using your phone to film and stream (which can work very well and give great results!) we recommend this tripod and light combo.  It can be used on a tabletop or on the floor and works great if you just need a bit of extra lighting.
  • If you want to have more options and higher quality video, we recommend the Canon Vixia HF R800 camera.  It’s easy to use right out of the box but has in-depth features so you can dial in great video under all types of different conditions.  You’ll want a tripod and a memory card to use with the camera.  We don’t think any of the other accessories are necessary, and most of the kits that come with accessories include a lot of cheap stuff you don’t need.


  • If you really want to step up your lighting game we recommend this three-piece CFL softbox kit.  It has two regular softboxes and one boom box so you can achieve a perfect three-light setup.  We have found that one alone in a space that already has good natural light is sufficient, and two works well with less.  You can use all three to create the perfect lighting.


  • The Shure BLX14 has either an XLR (microphone cable) or 1/4″ (guitar cable) balanced output.  If you are plugging it into either the Canon Vixia camera (or most cameras) or anything else with a 3.5mm (standard headphone cable) jack you will need this 3.5mm to 1/4″ adapter cable.  If you want to use it with your phone you can use the iRig 2 interface (for 3.5mm headphone Jacks and Apple lightning jacks) with a simple 1/4″ cable.  The iRig Pre is a better option, as it has an additional preamp gain stage (volume – increase the volume going in) if it is available.  You will need a simple XLR cable to use the iRig Pre.
