Whether or not that shoot on their phone or large camera, here are 7 of our favorite items from the team that will help power their YouTube channel.

At A Glance…

Brand: Fujifilm

Price: $1699.95

Camera Type: Mirrorless

This camera shines high end specs subtly packed into a classic looking camera body, for both photographers and filmmakers alike. The first physical aspect we took a liking to was the flip out screen that not only orientates up and down, side to side, really wherever you need it. This greatly benefits both photographers and filmmakers alike. This, so far, is the only camera we’ve been known to do this. Another incredibly unique feature to the X-T4 is Fuji’s film simulation modes, allowing users to enhance their image with film stock emulators. Some are soft and subdued, while others are bold and vibrant. Although each of these options are typically shot in JPEG mode, RAW files can be simultaneously recorded in case you need a log-profile image for post processing. Thirdly, their improved AF tracking performance actually works (what a concept). It accurately detects hyper focused fast-moving faces, eyes, or manually selected objects for both photos and videos. This changes the game for those who need fast-acting auto settings.

Little screen!

Brand: DJI

Price: $349.00

Product Type: Gimbal Camera

What’s the secret to DJI Pocket 2? A 3-axis gimbal stabilizes the camera for smooth video on the move. This technology is also great for creative photos like handheld long-exposure shots. Basically like capturing Hollywood-like camera footage with the quick swift of a button and pan of action. DJI’s name continuously boasts excellent products, and it might be true with this little fellow. The Pocket 2 is ready to capture it all.

Moment Variable ND Filter

Best For: Photographers and filmmakers in harsh lighting conditions wanting to control their exposure and adda cinematic butter to their film reels.

Glossy and hardy.

Fits on any DSLR.

That yummy magenta.

Brand: Moment

Price: $129.99 - $319.99

Product Type: Variable Neutral Density Filter

We’ve shot with a lot of Variable ND filters. They were either too expensive or the quality wasn’t there. None of them hit the sweet spot on affordability, functionality, and quality… so we made our own. The filter rings are precision machined from aerospace grade metal, delivering the durability we expect when shooting. Our Variable ND Filters also feature a unique flared geometry unlike anything else on the market, allowing you to see your ND number from behind the viewfinder. This provides fast, precise control over your shots in tricky lighting, without moving from behind the camera. Made to shoot on the go, the filters also feature hard stops at both ends of the range to prevent unwanted cross polarization for the cleanest image possible.

This is the most affordable, easiest-to-use gimbal out of the box. The Osmo 3 is all about the single-button shooting experience. Press, shoot, and the DJI app will take care of the rest. It’s point-and-shoot camera simplicity with modern gimbal functionality. This means you can make your footage look cinematic with the click of a button, just throw your phone in the gimbal and immediately start shooting. This gimbal has also made huge strides in portability. What it lacks in payload capacity, it more than makes up for with ease of use, portability, and price. The Osmo Mobile 3 makes buttery professional clips the most accessible they have ever been, and we are here for it.
