Linco Studio Lighting Kit

The number one factor in video quality is the lighting. Bad lighting = bad videos. Good lighting = GREAT videos! This is the best lighting kit for the money BY FAR! Usually under $125 at the link below. I’ve paid 3-4 times as much for worse products. This kit has everything, including backgrounds, two reflector lights, two umbrella lights, carry bag, and more.

Logitech BRIO Webcam

The BRIO costs more than twice as much as the C922x and it’s only slightly better. Since it saves us a few minutes per video in editing, it’s worth it, but I used the C922x for years before upgrading. Only use this if you truly need the slight increase in quality and don’t mind paying $150+ for a webcam. Also plug-and-play USB and if you are on a Mac, you’ll need the Logitech Camera Settings app (FREE).

Logitech C922x Pro Stream Webcam

This is the camera I recommend if you are on a budget and want to do high-quality videos or livestreams. I’ve never seen it cost more than $78 on Amazon at the link below. It’s a plug-and-play USB camera that works on every device I’ve tried. NOTE: If you are on a Mac, make sure to install the Logitech Camera Settings app.
