  2. Prong's World on September 24, 2019 at 9:29 pm

    I have two LED light but for some reason it doesn’t make my skin looks good. It looks very pale and yellow. I couldn’t get the lighting right. Is it because of the phone or is it because I didn’t set the light correctly? 🙁

    Thank you for showing (& linking!) the microphone adapter & lightening cable for the iPhone! I almost said screw it & bought a new mic because I couldn’t find these two tiny (yet super important) things. Once again, your video saves the day! Much 💕 for all you do!



  5. Patrick Olson on September 24, 2019 at 9:31 pm

    Where is the link for the light used with the ulanzi setup?



  6. Ozboy in Thailand on September 24, 2019 at 9:32 pm

    I found this very helpful! Have only been using iPhone



  7. Mike Ferguson on September 24, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Great info! Thanks!



  8. The Cocktail Academy with Rochelle on September 24, 2019 at 9:33 pm

    Thank you for the tips! I use the Shure MV 88 mic and use my iPhone XS Max. Still tweaking lighting set up but always have my ring light in the mix. Going to experiment with that Neewer light and tripod for my first FB Live 🙂



  9. The Crazy Pop on September 24, 2019 at 9:35 pm

    I use a YouMic Lav mic. Great sound and costs about 10 dollars on amazon.



  10. SOL CARSTENS_PINAY IN USA on September 24, 2019 at 9:38 pm

    another great tips



  11. Reign Gaming on September 24, 2019 at 9:40 pm

    Another great video sean! By the way i love your new intro. It suits the great content. My favorite video accessory is a gimbal because i’m more of a filmaker

  14. LightningGmr on September 24, 2019 at 9:42 pm

    Is there a link to the light you used 🙂 you said Neewer?



  15. ERICA on September 24, 2019 at 9:44 pm

    I am pretty young to start a channel but I think I won’t show my face YET. Thanks For The Idea. You Inspire Me So Much😁



  16. Z4ijax TV on September 24, 2019 at 9:45 pm

    Really really helped! Thanks a bunch! Small youtuber here from the philippines. Support would be appreaciated. 🙂



  17. Alletics on September 24, 2019 at 9:45 pm

    Great content as always, especially looking on budget options. Unlike some videos that actually speak of 400 Bucks equipment as budget or a bargaign, whereas i have to work a lot to gain that amount of money on basically a hobby (with ambitions to grow). So speaking of that, Wolldecke you recommend the einflicht over the rather old Neewer CN-160 or isn’t the difference in quality that big? Thanks for an answer in advance and keep up putting this awesome, really helpful content.



  18. Johnny Tran on September 24, 2019 at 9:46 pm

    Some fantastic tips on gear and shooting video. I already switched my phone to 4K 30 frames and I can see a huge difference in the quality. Thanks for this video; it will really help me get started.



  40. Habitos de Vida Natural on September 24, 2019 at 10:15 pm

    Sean, what is the name of the light you are using with the ULANZY adapter? I don’t see it on the description box. Another question what is the max size that it can hold?



  41. Maria Angel Paras on September 24, 2019 at 10:15 pm

    Small YouTuber here!



  42. Derpy Oreo on September 24, 2019 at 10:15 pm

    Does that little round mic also work for android



  43. Vishant Dave on September 24, 2019 at 10:16 pm

    Hi Sean, do you have a link for the Neewer lighting you are using for this set up? I did not see it in the description.



  44. Tea Mẹ Bỉm Sữa Mỹ on September 24, 2019 at 10:18 pm

  46. Keith Hecker on September 24, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    Its a good video. However, not everyone has a iPhone like you. What about those things for a Andriod phone set up? That be a huge help!



  47. playersuns13 on September 24, 2019 at 10:21 pm

    Thank you for your content…I want to take this set up and film and capture audio at a live concert ,what mic do you suggest with my cell phone and eventually with a camera? (I know the audio won’t be perfect)



  48. Invest Industries TV on September 24, 2019 at 10:22 pm

    Thanks for the tips. Just starting my channel.

    Can you share the name and artist of the song that plays at the end of the video?
