You tube on a budget

Old 3 Comments on You tube on a budget 55

Everyone loves You tube. The gamers,techs,musicians,car enthusiests,etc. we all want to have successful channels. So most go and buy expensive equippment, set up a room, and begin recording and eventually upload videos. Most people are focusing on the better equipment. Some people have the brand new audio recorder from some random company, that charged them $600. What happens if your whole budget is that $600, or maybe even less. I began to look for cheaper equipment.I didn’t purchase any.

Aduio recorders:

The Olympus VN-702PC audio recorder Can hold up to 823 hours of recording.Has a 2GB internal memory, Has has a built in stand, with an SD card slot with potential to have another 32gigs memory in total up to 34 GIGS.Its pretty light at 2.6oz. supports mp3 and Wma. The price $68.90.I found it on amazon.

Lets say you wanted to spend $100.00 on the audio recorder. The Tascam DR-05 Portable Digital Recorder might work. has omni directional headphones. and comes with a 2Gig Sdcard I cant find a lot of detail about it, but at $99.99. still pretty cool. Again I found it on Amazon.


The panasonic HC-V130K Has stability contol to keep little to no shaking while moving the camera, it has a BSI sensor. so low lighting wont blur.with 32 -1216mm long zoom, so you got a good range to shoot from. and it has a 3inch display. all for $199.99

The next one is a bundle, which if i can come up with the money, I may get it. A Samsung HMX-F90 . It has a 2.7 Lcd screen and HD video recording.It comes with a 32gig SDcard, factory 1 year warranty, Memory card reader, a tripod, a padded case,Hdmi cable, mini tripod,cleaning cloth, and an SD card wallet to keep the sd cards together.records 1280x720p, and you can configure the camera to automatically upgload the videos to youtube.All for$199.99 without additional warranty or 2 day delivery.

now to the editing software:

Corel VideoStudio ultimate X7 is $52.10.It has premium 64 bit FX apps and it has improved multitrack performance. That had the highest rating and is cheap.

With the total ranging from $320 to $352 not including tax or shipping, and the rest of the budget could be used for the accessories. So enjoy Youtubers.

    You did not include any video capture, but that is a hard market and every one has there favorites. For the most part they are all reasonable.

    I found the BCC950 ConferenceCam and it is awful in my personal tastes. Go buy an iPod Touch for that price.

    iPod Touch 16GB (Assorted Colors) $189.99.

    As with an iPod Touch, it has a camera for both video and photos, it can record and you can use Google Hangouts on it ANYWHERE a wifi signal is located.

    Thought you do need to set up the Hangout timing before hand otherwise it will not work if you want to do live broadcasting.

    You can, but I do not suggest, editing video on it over 3 minutes.

    Just my thoughts on a small budget.
