When I started my YouTube channel back in Oct 2011, I was obsessed with knowing what equipment other YouTubers were using to make their videos.
I would watch a video, fall in love with the production quality, then head over to the description box hoping to find out what camera, lighting and backdrop the person was using.
Most of the time, the awesome camera equipment, and lighting were out of my budget, but I thought I needed all of that to build a successful channel.
These days, I know being yourself and sharing valuable content is much more important than all the other things we care about in the beginning.
The good news is, you don't need to spend thousands of dollars to get started! Don't let equipment hold you back from starting your channel today.
