The Right Camera
Choose a camera that is versatile and is able to do what you want, when you want without any restrictions or limitations. Canon and Sony are probably your best bet if you want that HD, clear focus. Your camera is the one filming, but remember, to capture the audience attention, you need to be able to tell an interesting story and click with your viewers. Find the right angle, and away you go!
Make sure you maintain a steady shot throughout your video as you need your audience to be able to connect with you and they can’t do that if you’re shaking and moving all the time. This can sometimes cause motion sickness and your audience will be clicking off subscribe faster than when Han Solo made the Kessel Run in less than 12 parsecs. Purchase a trusty tripod and test it out before you shoot your video.
