⚠️ YouTubers — Your First Camera Should Be a Webcam. Here’s Why…
If you’re shopping for cameras on Amazon — STOP!
New YouTubers don’t need to know about…
❌ Three-point lighting
❌ Focal length
❌ 4K vs. 1080p
Delete all of this video production mumbo-jumbo from your mind.
✅ Your recording process requires zero effort. In fact, the goal of your Studio is to simply sit down, hit one button, and start recording.
Your Studio is Your Accelerator — Not the Barrier
In order to reach your goal of 100 videos uploaded, your studio needs to be an afterthought:
(10–20 second setup time)
- One light
- One webcam
- One microphone
Remove any and all friction between you, your idea and the “Publish” button.
Here’s how, step by step:
📸 Step 1: Get a cheap webcam (or use your laptop’s)
If your laptop already comes equipped with a webcam, then skip to Step #2.
When shopping, any webcam with 1080p recording capabilities is fine. There is no “good” webcam or the “right” webcam. There never will be.
It’s procrastination in the form of shopping — and you know it.
💡 Step 2: Install a cheap LED soft-light
Spend less than $50 on the LED and the light stand.
Your light’s job is to brighten up your face, so that you stands out from the background. No more, no less.
🎤 Step 3: Plug in a USB microphone
The most important step in your studio setup — a good microphone.
What makes a good microphone? Any microphone that isn’t your laptop’s microphone. USB microphones like Blue Yeti will last you 5 years or more.
Video equipment gets overwhelming quickly, so don’t even bother. Build a simple home studio that accelerates your video production process.
