I don’t know about you, but I always get excited when the mail comes. Especially when there are packages with your name on them. And now, with my room half-filled with empty boxes and packaging materials, I can show you some of my new supplies.
My priority was filming quality. The video recording and lighting are important factors. My phone was easy to film with, but the quality was definitely lacking. I haven’t used the cameras much yet, but so far they seem great. Using OBS I can change different settings to adjust the picture. Plus, they will work for both YouTube and Twitch livestreaming.
For lighting, I bought the Lightblade 1500s. Originally, I was planning on an Ottlite. But the reviews on Amazon were so positive that I decided to give it a chance.
I want to do voiceovers for the videos, so I bought the NESSIE Blue Microphone. I’ve seen people on Twitch use them, and the Amazon reviews were also good.
Lastly, the scanner was another necessary purchase. Previously I had only taken pictures of my artwork, but they’re nothing compared to the quality of a scanner. Personally, I would have preferred a larger one, since I like doing bigger artworks. This was the best I could get for my budget, as the other ones I looked at were about $2,000 and up. Upon letting out a cry of shock and slight despair, I decided this $99 Canon scanner was the best option. I’ll figure out what to do with big drawings when I need to.
Are filled with glee at the arrival of packages and equipment upgrades?
