What Equipment Should I Buy?

Updated: May 6th, 2017

This set up is designed for sales agents working a pipeline of leads; and represents the sweet spot between production speed, easy of use, and video quality. This set up is ideal for video email, video conferencing (if you move the light and webcam behind the computer), screen narration, and entry-level video production for your website/blog.

Equipment required to attain a business-professional standard:

Type

Model

Cost (Est.)

A. Webcam

Logitech C920

$65

B. Ring Light

18" Diva Super Nova

$250

C. Stand/Tripod

Diva Video Tripod and/or Diva Table Top Stand

$100 and $80 each

D. Microphone

Blue Nessie (Economy) or Rode NT (Pro)

$80 or $170

We buy equipment from DVeStore because they warranty in-house and provide stellar guidance. You can save a nominal amount by purchasing from vendors like Amazon and BHPhoto but don't expect the same level of service or support as DVeStore.

N.B. Equipment recommendations vary slightly based on your vocation, environment, and goals. For the best results, (1) snap a few photos of your office on your phone, then (2) email them to us along with a brief description of your job.

Why Can't I Use a Built-In Webcam, Phone, or DSLR Camera?
