My Video Gear

On this page you’ll find an up-to-date list of the gear I use to produce my videos. Note that this is not a beginners’ gear list – this is the actual gear I use. While I love every piece of gear on this list, there may be better options to start out with if you’re on a budget. If you want to use what I use, though, here it is.

Canon EOS R5

My main b-roll camera. I've also filmed a number of videos fully with this camera. Full-frame, 4k video up to 120fps, IBIS, CLog3 - this camera rocks.

Rode VideoMic NTG
$249.00

Absolutely awesome on-camera mic that works via a 3.5mm jack (not XLR). Perfect for the Canon R5. I always travel with this mic along with my Tascam DR-10L lav.

Tascam DR-10L Recorder
$139.00

Huge bang-for-the-buck. Belt-clipped audio recorder plus a very high-quality lav mic that clips to your shirt. I use this for all my outdoor "walk and talk" shots. For this price, it's hard to get higher-quality audio without having a big podcast mic in the frame.

Canon EOS C70
$5,329.95

This is my favorite camera, and what I currently use to film all my a-roll (talking head). It's a full-blown cinema camera in a body that's nearly as small as the R5, so you can even fly it on a consumer-level gimbal.

Aputure 300D Mark II

My primary ("key") light for nearly every video. I pair this with the Light Dome that's also listed on this page.

Canon RF 15-35mm F2.8 Lens

The most versatile lens I own. Gets super-wide, has image stabilization, and goes down to a respectable f/2.8. If I can only bring one lens when traveling, it's this one.

Shure SM7B Vocal Microphone with Cloudlifter
$599.99

My voiceover and tutorial mic of choice. Sounds amazing, but needs the Cloudlifter to boost the gain when used with most consumer audio interfaces.

Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB Audio Interface

I use the 18i8; this is identical except for the number of inputs (2). The Scarlett Solo is also good, and cheaper, but I think it's good to have at least two inputs.

Gotta have a mic arm for your mic!
