Hi everyone! Today's post is about how I am making improvements to the video quality on my channel in the near future! If you're a YouTuber, blogger, or just a viewer, then this may interest you, so read on for more!
As my channel has grown so much this year, I've really been wanting to make improvements to my video quality. I've purchased three different new cameras within the past year, all to help improve my channel. However, the main camera that I use is the Canon EOS Rebel T3i, and I bought that about a year and a half ago. There are actually two newer versions of the camera out, but I love the one that I have, and rather than buying a whole new camera, I plan on experimenting with new lenses instead. But lenses are expensive! The one that I've had my eyes on for a while now is almost $500! Isn't that crazy?! So it will be a little while before I make the investment.
It's always really important to me to maintain high video quality, because no matter how good the content of the video is, if the video quality is poor, it just makes it less enjoyable for the viewer. Other improvements that I've been making are investing in better professional filming lights. I started with two that were given to me as a gift about a year and a half ago, but one of them actually almost started a fire because the fuses started smoking while filming! So for probably about a year now, I've only had one filming light. This has actually been totally fine, being that a lot of my filming is done outdoors or with natural lighting, so I don't always need to have lights up.
The light that I purchased this month was a Diva Ring Light (pictured above). This is a light that you place around your camera so that it is able to light your entire face evenly. The difference between this light and a basic filming light is that basic lights are to brighten a room or specific large area. The Diva Ring Light is specifically for the face, and really helps show true colors of makeup products, complexion, and other facial features on camera.
Items that I plan on investing in sometime in the near future are the following:
