DSLR vs iPhone vs Webcam

You don’t need an expensive DSLR camera or the latest smartphone to make videos. The entire video above was made using a Logitech C920 webcam, plus a couple of crucial add-ons that I go over in the video.


If you found the video above useful, I made a post last year that covers the pros and cons of these recording methods in more detail, which includes a GoPro as well. The content is a bit dated, but still relevant today.

    Would be nice if I could have gone to full screen – especially for us who have sight problems.

    But thank you for the info.


  • Peter Jackson says:

    Looking good, Will. Even I understood it. From little acorns oak trees grow.

    Hey Will,

    Awesome information! Can you please clarify? Are you moving from the Blue Nessie to the Rode NT? And does it matter what webcam? And what brand of ring light? This is a new piece to me… I’m intending to look to investing in this equipment in 2017… so a little more detail would be great!

    Thanx much!
    With Appreciation,

      Hi Trae,

      Equipment recommendations vary based on your vocation, recording enviroment, budget and goals. However, since we’ve spoken before, I have a pretty good idea of the setup that would work for you:
      Logitech C920 Webcam
      Audio-Technica AT2020+
      Prismatic 14′ Ring Light and Stand

  • Thanx Will! A pleasure learning and growing with you!

    Hi Will, Great video thanks. What platform did you use to record this on was it Skype, Youtube or some other program. Thanks for your help.
