|A lot of folks have asked over the last several months about the equipment the Miles, Mesh, Greg, et. al. use to make the videos. We've heard that equipment has changed a lot from the beginning as well.
Now that we have a place to discuss making videos, I wanted to sticky the equipment they use (as posted by The Creators in another thread). And if folks have questions for them or if they want to expand on this discussion, it's here!
Logitech Orbit MP webcam - Used for the full screen footage
Used to use a Panasonic PV-GS180 (or something similar), now also use a Canon GL1 - Used for widescreen handheld footage
Windows, desk lamps, "work lamps" from a hardware store. We recently got a couple of cheap "pro" lights that were only a couple hundred bucks.
Used to use internal mic on the webcam, now use a $100 mic from guitar center.
Edit using Premiere 6.5 on a reasonably good PC. We will hopefully be switching to Final Cut soon.
Key to making the webcam footage look good... use a LOT of light. They pixelate at low light levels.
So, all should be attainable for you guys as well.
