This is all the camera gear I currently have, some things I use more than others but I would recommend all of them.
This is an awesome camera for beginners who don't want to spend a ton of money on a camera right off the bat. It has pretty good quality, great autofocus, is lightweight, and definitely easy to use.
This tripod extends to over 5 feet tall and makes it super easy tilt the camera while it's on. It also comes with an attachment so you can mount a phone on it and a bag to make it easy to carry. This works with small cameras but can also support the weight of bigger ones like the Canon 80D.
I should’ve gotten one of these a long time ago so I could film in my dark basement room but I guess better late than never! It has a nice dimmer switch, carrying case, and white and orange color filter snap on things which gives you the option between cool and warm lighting.
I used this tripod with my Sony a5100 in the very beginning and even after getting a larger tripod, it was really nice to use when vlogging/moving the camera around for a video frequently.
I got this external hard drive to store videos so I could free up space on my computer. It holds 1000 GB's of stuff and is smaller than my hand so that's pretty cool.
Since the Canon 80D comes with a very frustrating autofocus noise, I had to get an external mic to go with it, and this is the one I chose which seems to have pretty good quality to someone like me who doesn’t know much about microphones!
This is a nice little window suction stand which works with lightweight cameras (like the Sony a5100) and was really nice for the 2 times I filmed while driving in my van… but I’m sure I’ll get back around to using it someday!
I got this camera so I could make some videos that are a bit higher quality because I’ve seen a lot of people talk about it being a pretty good camera for beginners who don’t want a good quality camera but don’t want to be spending multiple thousands on one.
