Youtube Equipment

The equipment that I use for my Youtube Channel:

Katrina’s Toy Channel

Hello viewers!I am by no means a video expert, but I love making videos and I am striving to create BETTER videos with each upload! The products listed below are affordable, and more importantly, offer ease of use! Believe me, if I can do it? So can you!

Gear that I use and recommend for video creation on Youtube:

The Ulanzi U Rig Pro Smartphone stabilizer is fantastic! It will hold your android or iphone and hold your Ulanzi lights and Rode VideoMicro right on top! The Ulanzi U Rig Pro can be held in your hands to shoot, or attached to your tripod! A real snazzy looking set up!

The Ulanzi mini tripod is small, easy to use and sturdy without being cumbersome! This tripod is sturdily built, not flimsy as some table top tripods are!

This is a great tripod by Sunpak. It is strong, yet light weight. It has 3 adjustable legs. A tripod is essential to getting that professional looking stable shot that we all want!

Sometimes, I find that I need that shot of my camera passing my toys by……
I can’t get that with my camera stationary on a tripod! How do I get a stable smooth shot? The mobile camera dolly below! Essential!

Great microphone to upgrade from your phones microphone. The Rode Videopro will mount on the center of your Ulanzi U Rig Pro Smartphone holder. Be sure to buy the TRS to TRRS patch cable. You will need the cable to use the microphone with your smart phone.

For great sound your talent needs to be within 3 feet of the microphone. The lavalier can clip to your talent! Use when they are too far away from your Rode Videopro.

These are the lights that will mount on your Ulanzi U Rig Smartphone holder/stabilizer. They will mount on either side of your Rode Videomicro. The lights are adjustable, and they run on simple  Rechargeable Energizer AA batteries.

You will need 2 lights. Each light requires 2 AA batteries. Always keep at least 4 additional charged AA batteries as back. There’s nothing more annoying than running out of light in the middle of a shoot!

Finally, don’t forget the battery charger! Below is a charger to charge 8 batteries at a time. Charge up all your batteries in advance of your shoot!

Yes! I shoot with an android smartphone! The Samsung Galaxy s6 plus edge to be exact. I use it in conjunction with the app Open Camera. I upload my files to my PC via USB cable. Always have a new USB cable stashed away. Cables go bad, and when they do? They won’t transfer your footage to your PC. There’s hardly anything more frustrating than NOT being able to get your footage edited when you are ready to do so.

Don’t forget the tripod mount adapter for your smartphone! You will need this adapter to use with your tabletop tripod, (with your larger Sunpak tripod, you will use your U Rig Smart Pro stabilizer).

You need lights! and you need stands to hold them. The Cowboy Studio lights are height adjustable. They are made of metal, strong, yet light weight. They fold compactly and come with carry bags for your outdoor shoots.

These are the lights that mount to your Cowboy Studio stands. You will need two: one for each stand.

NEEWER 160 LED CN-160 Dimmable Ultra High Power Panel Digital Camera / Camcorder Video Light, LED Light for Canon, Nikon, Pentax, Panasonic,SONY, Samsung and Olympus Digital SLR Cameras

These are the rechargeable batteries to power your Neewer 160 LED lights. I recommend that you have 4 – 2 that you are currently shooting with, and 2 that are charged as back up. Lastly, do not forget your battery charger, link is below.
