Equipment for Vlogging

In vlogging, an essential part is the quality of your video. Therefore, it is important to have the best equipment for your shoots.

Tools for Vlogging

⦁    Camera

This is the first thing that you definitely need for vlogging. People think that you need expensive cameras but some vloggers only use webcams or their smartphones to record videos. However, it is best to have high-quality videos so that your viewers will appreciate your content.

⦁    Support

There are times that you need a support for your camera to record your videos. A heavy camera needs a tripod, while action cams or smartphones can use selfie sticks.

⦁    Lighting

This equipment is important to divert the attention of the viewers to your main subject. Knowing the proper lighting techniques can make a major difference in the final outcome of your videos.

⦁    Microphone

Aside from high-quality video, it’s also important to have clear audio. One of the common mistakes of vloggers is having bad audios in their videos. Thus, it is important to pick the right microphone during your shoots, especially in outdoors.

⦁    Editing Software

After you shoot your videos, you’ll need great software to edit the scenes. Most computers now have basic editing software installed. However, it is best to use the latest editing software so you will have all the tools that you need.

Additional Tips for Vlogging

Once you have the necessary equipment for vlogging, it is now time to choose your topic. If you want to gain followers, you should talk about the current trend or the latest news – whether it is about politics, celebrities, or research. Keep in mind that you need to make a thorough research and gather facts regarding your topic.


It is also important to comment on other people’s blogs. You can help other vloggers improve their content by giving advice or complimenting them. In return, you can gain more knowledge with your discussion and even followers. You can also use other techniques to gain viewers like doing a collaboration with famous vloggers, guest blogging, joining forums with other vloggers, accepting requests from viewers, or even offering coupon codes from famous online shops.

    I have done a few vlogging. I use my DSLR camera to do that. and I usually have it edited on After Effects to make it more appealing.

    Vlogging has become very popular with the advent of smartphones and digital cameras. Most vloggers use their smart phones and digital cameras to take videos instead of buying professional cameras. I think this is very practical for beginners.
