Mobile live streaming is amazing because anyone can go live, but that also means there’s lots of bad live video because anyone can go live. I don’t believe in using gear as an excuse to not go live but it does help increase the quality of your live feed and makes for a better experience for your viewers. Whether its Facebook Live, Periscope, YouTube Live, Musical.ly, YouNow, Busker or another phone based live streaming app the 4 main areas you must focus on when it comes to gear are: Audio, Power, Lenses and Tripods/Mounts.
As part of my #BeYourself course, I’m breaking down everything around live video and I decided to broadcast this module about live video gear on Facebook Live & Periscope. Below you can watch the entire 40 min Facebook live video recording that includes some tips and tricks on what you need for live video and the live Q & A with the live audience at the end. I also cut the video up into two parts if you want to get right to the gear. All the links are my affiliate amazon links to the exact gear that I showed on the video.
Remember don't let not having all the gear stop you from PRESSING THE DAMN BUTTON!Click To Tweet
