S3E37: What I would buy for my YouTube Streaming Gear Today?

So it has been a long journey and this is what I would buy for my YouTube Studio Gear if I started from scratch and also the gear that I went with when I had to make value judgements (read that as budgetary requirements?) Sign up for the Expand Your Reach Virtual Summit https://techtroublemaker–geeks.thriv… (Note: all of my equipment links are affiliate links so I may earn a commission which I will use to upgrade my gear) Here is what I would buy if I started again…
Elgato Key Light Air X 2. https://amzn.to/3DMQwjx (The Neewer lights flack out with app control)
Elgato StreamDeck XL https://amzn.to/3CMZ6gD (15 buttons are not enough) Sony ZV-E10 (I love this camera, it was the right choice) https://amzn.to/3xet8ZG
Sigma 16mm 1.4f Sony E mount lens (such great focus and I love the blur) https://amzn.to/3cFqK4E
Shure MV7 USB/XLR Dynamic Mic (with the software you can get a really nice podcaster sound) https://amzn.to/3r51ywI
Elgato Green Screen https://amzn.to/30ZDYqB (curtain styles and stands are just too much of a pain and take too much room)

S3E20: #LEDA Let’s go Live and Why You Should

#LEDA Challenge. Let's Go Live Every DayLEDA Challenge.

Dream of being a YouTube Star? Or maybe you just want confidence when you are doing Zoom meetings, then Let’s Go Live every day in August. Back in April I took the #LEDA challenge. I went live every day for April. This led to me ramping up my YouTube Channel which before was just a place to put an occasional video for tutorials I did for my college class students. But while doing #LEDA, I started going Live on my YouTube channel and I have gone live every Tuesday ever since.
