Tools and Resources

Below is a list of suggested tools and resources that I use.   If you buy through these links I will get a percentage of each sale for referring you.  This doesn’t change the price for you, but it does help me maintain the site and continue to create content.  This list only highlights items that I actually use and enjoy.

Video Stuff: 

Vegas Pro Software – I edit my videos with Vegas Pro. I’ve used Vegas software for close to 10 years now. It’s really simple to use yet still powerful enough for what I need.

Techsmith Camtasia – I’ve used Camtasia even longer than Vegas, in my opinion this is the best software for recording your screen. I use it for all of my tutorial and training work.

Sound Forge Audio – Great audio tool for capturing, editing, and cleaning up audio. Great for cleaning up vocals in videos.

Panasonic Lumix G7 Camera – I’ve been using this since 2015. Great for both photos and video. It does amazing 4k video and is smaller than a DSLR camera so it’s pretty comfortable to carry around.

Sony X3000 Action Camera– This is my portable camera.  Shoots 4k and is super small/lightweight which is great for capturing family experiences, travel, and other content on the go.

Rode Headset Mic – I mainly use this mic for all videos when in my studio,  rather talking in front of the camera or doing a screen tutorial.  I’m a huge fan of Rode and have various models of their mics.

Rode Video Micro – I use this as an on camera mic, mainly when I’m doing group shots, vlogs, and other run and gun work. No battery required, small,  just plug and go.

Zoom H1 Recorder – I use this small recorder for capturing audio, sometimes I’ll plug a lav mic into it and use it as a wireless mic setup, affordable and sounds great

Zoom H6 Recorder – I use this recorder when I need more inputs or mic options. It has 6 tracks and can switch between stereo and shotgun mics which is great for events, trade shows, or group audio.

iRig Lav Mic – A simple lav mic that can hook up to your phone or portable recorder (requires an adapter for recorder hookup)
