Since Gideon Shalwick of Rapid Video Blogging made a video about his blogging gears and setup, I figured I would do the same. My video blogging gear is a bit different from Gideon’s but they both achieve the same thing in the end, which is to make money!
I do not use any studio setup with fancy lighting or green screen. All my videos are shot on location with whatever lighting is available at the time. When I am traveling light, I will just bring the SD980. If I require higher quality or if I’m filming in low light situations, I will use the HFS100.
The following video was shot while I was visiting friends in Bellevue, Washington and was filmed, edited and uploaded to YouTube in less than an hour. It really is amazing how far video has come in only a few years. It wasn’t very long ago when it would have taken days and cost tens of thousands to be able to shoot a video like this.
