Here are some of my tools. I’m adding the rest slowly. 

My Studio Set-Up

In trying to figure things out, I have purchased a lot of studio gear. Here is the equipment that I enjoy and use. The nice thing about everything on this list is that it works well and creates a complete studio package. 

I also purchased a sturdy backdrop set. But since I don’t use it, I won’t share it here. 

High-Definition Pro Webcam

This full HD 1080p webcam delivers nice quality at an affordable price point. I purchased this camera for my first online speaking engagement, and I haven’t stopped using it since. It’s easy to set up and use. I have the older model, but I heard this one is really nice. 


Professional Teleprompter

It took me a long time to find a teleprompter that works well with my webcam. I bought another popular brand, but if felt cheap and didn’t work with my webcam. Then I found this! It cost more, but it was the perfect addition to my studio!


 72-inch Camera Tripod

Made of aluminum alloy, this light-weight tripod is sturdy enough to support my webcam and teleprompter (both shown above). I had purchased another brand, but it was really flimsy, and I worried I would break my equipment. 


Softbox Lighting Kit

This kit come with (2) soft boxes, light bulbs, height adjustable stands, sandbags, rotatable heads with power cable; and one (1) tote bag. I bought three different kits, but this is the one I use all the time. NOTE: Please check that it’s compatible with your country’s electrical outlets. This is super important to avoid the risk of fire and other accidents. 


 USB Studio Microphone

This is my go-to mic! This professional USB mic delivers clear, powerful, broadcast-quality sound for course video recording, YouTube videos, Zoom meetings, and podcasting. It’s perfect if you’re not moving around. 

I found out the hard way that if you move around the sound quality suffers. Also, it’s very sensitive and picks up your breathing sounds if you’re mouth is too close. Use a pop filter or a foam windscreen like the one below.  


Condenser Mic

This is a clip-on mic for smartphones, DSLR, camcorders, audio recorders, and PC. I have only used it with my laptop and PC. It’s an omni directional condenser mic. You can move around a little, but you have to be careful because it’s not wireless and if it hits your clothes while moving it makes a distracting noise. However, it’s one of the most affordable mics that produces good quality sound. 


 Foam Windscreen for the USB Studio Mic

This foam windscreen is for the USB studio mic above. I use it all the time; it’s married to my mic. I also purchased a pop filter, but I haven’t use it yet, so I can’t recommend it. This was so easy to pop on that I just went with it.
