Best Equipment and Gear For Video Podcasting From Your Home Office

August 11, 2017
Timelapse of my home studio setup where I record my video podcast as well as live streaming videos.

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,, 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.

To leverage new live streaming apps Periscope, FireTalk, Facebook Live YouTube and more, gear isn’t a requirement and as you can read here. All you really need is an iPhone and iPhone headset is all you need to leverage the live streaming apps available today. When working with brands I try hard to not only leverage the technology but to go above and beyond to provide quality audio and video but don’t get confused my goal isn’t perfection or to compete with a professional video production rather it’s to keep the mobile aspect while increasing the quality and experience for my live viewers.

You can watch a video I recorded on periscope going over this gear as I was packing up for a recent brand sponsored live stream event here. I’m always open to testing out new gear and I don’t believe I have the perfect setup yet, but I’m starting to test and tweak more which makes me a happy geek. Want me to test out your gear? Send me an email to

Full disclosure: I’m an Apple Fanboy (“i” in iSocialFanz is for Apple) but also love the features and benefits of Android devices. For me you don’t have to hate one product to prove you love another. Therefore you’ll see below a couple options as I’ve found different use cases for different types of tripods or lenses depending on the project.
