As you may have noticed, I have a Youtube Channel called Be A Better Dev where I create content focused on software development and cloud computing. Here’s the gear I use to record.
Microphone – Shure SM 58
My microphone of choice is the Shure SM 58 Dynamic Microphone. Being a dynamic mic, it negates a lot of the echo in rooms with high ceilings – it even helps reduce mechanical keyboard clicking.
I managed to find this package deal including the SM58, a stand, and the XLR to XLR cord you’ll need to plug it into your Audio Interface.
Audio Interface – Behringer UM2
In order to produce quality sound, you need an audio interface to convert the audio signal in your microphone to a digital file. The DAC also acts as a dedicated power source for your microphone as opposed to relying on your computer’s USB.
Webcam – Logitech c920s
Most of my video material is captured on my Logitech c920s webcam. The c920s supports full 1080 hp and has a built in internal microphone.
Camera – Fujifilm XS10
More recently I started filming a lot of talking head videos. I wasn’t satisfied and eventually purchase the Fujifilm XS10. Paired with my 35mm lens it takes absolutely stunning video.
Check out this video that I filmed using the XS10.
Camera Lens – Fujifilm 35mm F2
Not much to say about this lens except that it produces video with crisp images and great looking background blur.
