Basic Video Setup

DO NOT WASTE MONEY ON SMARTPHONE LENS – They create distortion and the “improvement is not worth what you pay”

You could attach the KobraTech TriFlex Mini-Flexible Tripod to one of the C-stands that comes with your Light Kit, or the Fotodiox Compact C-Stand, to act as a makeshift fluid head tripod. Make sure to weight it with something heavy, like a sandbag, to keep it from tipping over. You can even DIY a sandbag by filling a plastic bag with sand (or something similar like dry rice or beans).

Audio & Accessories

Here’s the thing about audio – it’s not essential (medium priority), BUT here are the benefits:

  1. Certain rooms absorb or echo sound – mics ensure you capture the sound and it is consistent
  2. Reduces any background noise – make sure you pick up the audio you want instead of everything
