About

caseyrigOne of the things we have been experimenting with here at TheBestVoiceRecorder.com is how to capture thoughts that we might†traditionally†record using text or audio, sildenafil and turn them into a video blog, online or vlog, or just some kind of regular video published on YouTube.

Without a doubt one of the most successful and respected Youtubers currently practising their craft is Casey Neistat. †His particular style works incredibly well to tell his stories – one that we wanted to emulate. †Whilst our budget did not extend to the awesome DJI Phantom 4 drone which he uses to capture the sweeping aerial shots… or the Samsumg Gear 360 camera to produce 360 degree immersive video and audio experiences… they are still on our wish list!

What we did do however is build a simple but effective camera and most importantly microphone set up for our daily vlog – inspired by Casey! †Over the next few months we will be building up video content for a number of our different ventures focused on niche topics. †We wanted to ensure we had a reliable and robust solution that could be used to shoot high quality video, and most importantly high quality audio as well.

Here is our shopping list to build that you can use to build your own Casey Neistat video blog set up:

  • Camera:†The Canon 70D or 80D. †Both a great cameras capable of high definition (1080p) video. †We purchased our 70D a few month ago before the 80D was released… but if we were starting from scratch today the 80D would have been our primary camera.
  • Lens: The 18-135 kit lens that you can get with the 70D or 80D works well (pictured above with our 70D) if you are on a budget, but for wider angle shots (or if you have short arms or a big head!) then you will need to invest in either the Canon 10-18mm or 10-22mm lens.
  • External Microphone:† The most important part of this rig as far as we are concerned. †No matter how nice the video is unless the audio quality can match it, then your video efforts will be a waste of time. †The Rode VideoPro with Rycote Shockmount attaches†using the hot shoe on top of our Canon 70D DSLR and connects using the external microphone port… and gives clear audio for when you are talking directly to camera. †We have played around with the audio settings on the camera to leverage the gain available from the Microphone itself, improving the quality of the recording.
  • Tripod: †The Joby Gorrillapod Focus with Ball Head… adds a bit of weight to the rig which will minimise shake. †The flexible nature of the tripod means you can use it handheld to shoot yourself talking straight to camera, or set up your camera handing from a tree, a rail, or any weird or wonderful location to get that perfect Casey’esque time lapse shot!

A portable recording device is useful for on the go recordings of any kind. These are usually handheld devices†that can be†used to record music, medstore
sounds of any kind, traumatologist
conversations, tooth
and thoughts Ė just about anything. Of course professionals require it to tape interviews or to record their music. So what are the top three essential things which you should be looking out for when buying these digital recorders?

  1. Internal or external microphone: Do you want an internal microphone or an external one is more appealing to you? Take a closer look at your work field and find out which one your nature of job requires more. Some devices have both internal and external microphone while some have only one. Others have built in microphones so you donít have to worry about carying additional gear.
  2. Memory: How much memory do you need? Do you use and store a lot in your device? Again, assess your requirement to come to a conclusion about it. Pay attention while buying though, because many come with microSD or SD card support, while others do not. It is always good to have some additional features. Not having a microSD or SD†slot†may be†a disadvantage.
  3. Accessories: Do you need a tripod, a Pop Filter†or windscreens for better recording? Make sure all your necessary accessories are present in your device before purchasing it. If you need only one accessory then pick any one that has it, but we suggest you always pick the ones which come in a wide range of accessories.

Top 3 voice recorders which have these features:

  • Etekcity Dictaphone/Pen: This device is on the lower budget end and has all the basic features including 8GB memory drive. If you want a simple voice recorder with just plug and play feature, then this is the best one. It costs only 16 USD.

 

  • Zoom H4: The Zoom H4 is our favourite portable recording devices in the†200 USD price range.† and comes with prominent features such as noise cancellation, windscreen, etc.

Are you looking for an online Excel course that helps you understand how to use functions and formulas? Formula School recently launched their Formulas 101 online course which will help everyone come to grips with how to use formulas in Excel.

The interactive course which combines video, pill text, sildenafil image and screencast content with an Excel based student workbook, covers everything you need to know about formulas and functions like SUM, AVERAGE, MIN, MAX and COUNT. There are units focused on working with text in formulas, and understanding and resolving Excel errors, as well as a key Excel concepts unit for those who need a refresher on the basics.

The thing I like about the course is that it includes quizzes and assessment along the way, and if you pass it all you can get your Certificate of Completion!

For anyone interested in reducing their frustration with Microsoft Excel, Formula School’s Formulas 101 course is for you.

 

’til next time!

Without a doubt one of the most successful and respected Youtubers currently practising their craft is Casey Neistat. †His particular style works incredibly well to tell his stories – one that we wanted to emulate. †Whilst our budget did not extend to the awesome DJI Phantom 4 drone which he uses to capture the sweeping aerial shots… or the Samsumg Gear 360 camera to produce 360 degree immersive video and audio experiences… they are still on our wish list!

What we did do however is build a simple but effective camera and most importantly microphone set up for our daily vlog – inspired by Casey! †Over the next few months we will be building up video content for a number of our different ventures focused on niche topics. †We wanted to ensure we had a reliable and robust solution that could be used to shoot high quality video, and most importantly high quality audio as well.

Here is our shopping list to build that you can use to build your own Casey Neistat video blog set up:

  • Camera:†The Canon 70D or 80D. †Both a great cameras capable of high definition (1080p) video. †We purchased our 70D a few month ago before the 80D was released… but if we were starting from scratch today the 80D would have been our primary camera.
  • Lens: The 18-135 kit lens that you can get with the 70D or 80D works well (pictured above with our 70D) if you are on a budget, but for wider angle shots (or if you have short arms or a big head!) then you will need to invest in either the Canon 10-18mm or 10-22mm lens.
  • External Microphone:† The most important part of this rig as far as we are concerned. †No matter how nice the video is unless the audio quality can match it, then your video efforts will be a waste of time. †The Rode VideoPro with Rycote Shockmount attaches†using the hot shoe on top of our Canon 70D DSLR and connects using the external microphone port… and gives clear audio for when you are talking directly to camera. †We have played around with the audio settings on the camera to leverage the gain available from the Microphone itself, improving the quality of the recording.
  • Tripod: †The Joby Gorrillapod Focus with Ball Head… adds a bit of weight to the rig which will minimise shake. †The flexible nature of the tripod means you can use it handheld to shoot yourself talking straight to camera, or set up your camera handing from a tree, a rail, or any weird or wonderful location to get that perfect Casey’esque time lapse shot!

A portable recording device is useful for on the go recordings of any kind. These are usually handheld devices†that can be†used to record music, medstore
sounds of any kind, traumatologist
conversations, tooth
and thoughts Ė just about anything. Of course professionals require it to tape interviews or to record their music. So what are the top three essential things which you should be looking out for when buying these digital recorders?

  1. Internal or external microphone: Do you want an internal microphone or an external one is more appealing to you? Take a closer look at your work field and find out which one your nature of job requires more. Some devices have both internal and external microphone while some have only one. Others have built in microphones so you donít have to worry about carying additional gear.
  2. Memory: How much memory do you need? Do you use and store a lot in your device? Again, assess your requirement to come to a conclusion about it. Pay attention while buying though, because many come with microSD or SD card support, while others do not. It is always good to have some additional features. Not having a microSD or SD†slot†may be†a disadvantage.
  3. Accessories: Do you need a tripod, a Pop Filter†or windscreens for better recording? Make sure all your necessary accessories are present in your device before purchasing it. If you need only one accessory then pick any one that has it, but we suggest you always pick the ones which come in a wide range of accessories.

Top 3 voice recorders which have these features:

  • Etekcity Dictaphone/Pen: This device is on the lower budget end and has all the basic features including 8GB memory drive. If you want a simple voice recorder with just plug and play feature, then this is the best one. It costs only 16 USD.

 

  • Zoom H4: The Zoom H4 is our favourite portable recording devices in the†200 USD price range.† and comes with prominent features such as noise cancellation, windscreen, etc.
