Thanks so much for attending my session on video creation at #FinCon17! I hope you left feeling confident and capable of creating high quality video on your own. 

Below are links to the various equipment I use as well as other products I found helpful when creating my videos. I've also created a Cheat Sheet that you can download below in case you weren't able to jot everything down!

Some of these links are affiliate links, which means I may receive a fee or commission should you purchase them using my links. (You fellow FinCon-ers know how it goes haha.) 



Canon Rebel T6i - great camera with autofocus (AF) and flip around touch screen

Diva Ring Super Nova - must have light for filming, in my opinion

Dolica Proline 60” Tripod with Ball Head - very sturdy tripod with level and quick detach camera mount

LimoStudio Umbrella Lights - best bang-for-your-buck day umbrella lights

128 GB SD card - the larger the SD card you get, the more you can film and batch at one time!

Seagate 4 TB portable hard drive - video files are large, you'll need extra storage to not bog down your computer

Audio-Technica ATR2100 - great podcast mic used by many people in the FinCon community


other products & services

Final Cut Pro - the editing software I use that takes my videos to the next level
