Cheap YouTube Equipment? — 5 Budget YouTube Setup Tips

October 10, 2019


– So where are the best places to find cheap YouTube equipment? In this video, I share my five best tips for saving money on video gear coming up. (laid back music) Hey, what’s up, guys? Sean here with THiNK Media TV, helping you go further faster in media. On this channel, we do video gear reviews, audio gear reviews, as well as tip videos just like this one. If you’re new here, consider subscribing. Alexxus asks, what are
some budget savings tips when it comes to investing
in your YouTube channel? Thanks so much for the question, Alexxus. I am just like you. I love a good deal and I love saving money whenever possible. Here are my top five tips. Number one is actually to use stuff that you already have. I think one of the best ways to actually save money on gear is to
not spend money at all. What I mean is some people feel like they’re being held back because they don’t have fancy production equipment when it comes to YouTube. A lotta times, I like to say that really, the only thing that
you need to get started is a smartphone. You might already have
one, or maybe someone in your family does. This phone these days shoots HD video. You could set it up on a table and just begin talking
right into the phone and shooting video clips. Think about what do you already have. Maybe one of the best ways to save money is to not spend any money at all. Tip number two is actually
avoiding buying stuff that you don’t need. What I also see people do is maybe you do wanna upgrade your stuff, so you do wanna buy some lighting
and you do wanna buy a DSLR and some lenses. But lenses is a great example. You don’t need a ton of lenses. In fact, you can get away with having really just one to create
a lot of great videos. In some cases, you might
watch a lot of videos and feel pressure, like ya need something that you don’t really need. Try to keep your setup
as minimal as possible when you’re trying to save money. Tip number three is one
of my favorite sites on the internet, and that is amazon.com. Now, the site itself
is good, and the prices are always usually pretty competitive, so you can trust the
site, but my favorite hack is the used section and
the refurbished section. A lotta times, especially
when I was shopping for lenses, some of the
higher end Canon lenses could cost $1,000, even $2,000, but occasionally you could find a lens that’s 800 bucks or $700. You could see if it’s a reputable seller. You could see if they’ve
got good feedback. You can read all about
their return policy. Sometimes they’re actually
supported by Amazon so you still get Amazon
Prime if you’re signed up for that and it’ll ship fast. Probably one of the biggest hacks is that Amazon used section for saving money. Returned Owl asks, what websites provide good sales on used gear? I plan on purchasing a Canon 80D to expand my channel,
but Amazon doesn’t have a reputable seller. Great question, and I
wanted to include it there ’cause I said make sure to look for those reputable sellers if
it’s in the used section. So my next tip would be actually the Canon refurbished site. Now, obviously, this only applies to Canon products, but
one of the coolest places to buy gear on the internet is the Canon refurbished section. A lotta times, very soon after a camera comes out, say, the Canon 80D, which, let’s say, is $1,200. I think it’s probably around there. That’ll come out on the Canon website, but soon thereafter, it might be a couple hundred dollars less as
a refurbished camera. One of the huge benefits about that is that it always comes
with a one year warranty backed by Canon. When you’re buying refurbished gear directly from Canon, you can have a lotta trust that not
only is it gonna be good, it’s gonna work, they’re gonna solve any problems you have, but you’re actually gonna get that warranty that’s typically probably not even available on those Amazon used section. For Canon gear, that’s
one of my favorite sites. To answer your question, if you’re looking for that 80D, that might be a place that I’d check out. Hey, by the way, we’ll actually list all of these sites, as
well as a few other ways that we like to save money, in the YouTube description below, so
definitely check those out. Actually, one thing I just looked up, again, if you were looking
for a budget camera, we’re probably gonna be doing a video here on it soon, currently,
and it goes in and out of stock, but the Canon SL1 with a lens. So you’re gonna get a Canon DSLR that has a mic input, with a lens, so you could start shooting, refurbished, is $389 on the site. We’ll link to that. Again, I don’t know how
many models they have. That is one challenge. When you’re in the used section, when you’re on the refurbished section, it has limited inventory. You always kinda gotta be shopping around, looking for deals, but that right there is not only a great budget camera that’s gonna produce
incredible DSLR results, but that’s a crazy low price tag for that kind of camera. Then it’s also worth it
to note that BH Photo also has not just their main site, but they have a whole
used section, as well. They actually will rate products on a scale from one to 10. Maybe the product will be a nine or even a 10 outta 10, even though it’s been used and with the condition that it’s in, so that’s a place. I haven’t spent too much time shopping there exactly, but that’s
another one to check out. Then my fifth tip overall would be Craigslist and eBay. Now, a few disclaimers here. eBay is a great one to do, especially if ya have some time. I love to go into eBay, and I always look at the completed listings. You could research Google how to look for completed listings. What I like about that is it’ll show you what’s possible, as far
as buying a product. If you wanted to buy a Canon 80D, you could go into completed listings and see that the body may be, at times, is selling, it’s about
$1,000, $1,200 body, but some people are getting it for 899 or $800. You’re like, okay, well,
that’s kinda the vision. I’m gonna shoot and I’m gonna be shopping on eBay for that. Of course, the variables
are there’s so many different shutter counts, how used is it, how good is the seller there. Always look for their
ratings and things like that. Then as far as Craigslist
go, be very cautious in this particular space. There can be some incredible deals. One of my favorite deals ever that I will never forget is this
Canon 30 millimeter 1.4. This is the older model,
but I got this one off Craigslist. At the time, $400 was about the price tag for this new, and I bought it for $100 with the nice case, perfect condition, had barely been used. Here in Las Vegas, went and met somebody, and handed over my favorite
$100 I’ve ever spent to buy a lens for 75% off that was in perfect condition. That was on Craigslist,
but here’s the huge caveat. Number one, you don’t wanna get shot, killed, mugged. I’m kinda joking, but if you’re gonna meet somebody, ya gotta be
really cautious about that. Number two, you really
wanna know your stuff. For instance, lenses can sometimes have the auto focus off. Sometimes the focusing is kind of sketchy. So what I typically like to do is, even if you have a ruler or the edge of a table, you get to auto focus exactly on the point that you wanna auto focus it on, take
the photo, and then look and preview the photo and zoom in to see if the focusing is accurate. That was kinda tech
speak there, but my point is you don’t wanna go to buy something off Craigslist, think it looks good, but not really know your stuff. If you do know your
stuff, or buy something that’s so dependable that
it’s not sketchy or whatever. If ya bought a drone off
Craigslist, (laughter) maybe it’s kinda damaged,
but you’re not sure ’cause you don’t know how to test or you don’t fly it and
consider every angle, if that makes sense. I say that, I’m not trying
to talk you out of it, but it is a good site. If you feel comfortable
to go meet somebody, you can get, literal, a
steal of a deal from people. Don’t steal from people ’cause I guess it could be reverse,
like you mug that person. Bad idea. (beep) Don’t actually do that, but realizing there are good deals
there, but it’s something to be careful about. Question of the day. What is your best tip for saving money on video gear and YouTube equipment? Post it in the comments section below, and remember that you and

    i'd also say check out places like used electronic stores some carry at least some camera or even something you can use and also some pawn shops are good as well most pawn shop today with always make sure the item works with no major defect sometimes at least one person working there will know something about what you're bringing in or that has always been my experience they held it and check to see if it was stolen or not you may not get a warranty but depending on how long it has been there you can if you know how to haggle a bit can get a good deal on things

    on the Craigslist sales aside from a comment down below about meeting at the police station if possible a few other tips would be meet in a public place fast food restaurant or something to that effect and never go alone always take someone with you and has been said smart phones are everywhere these days wish mine was smarter but i will leave that alone so just take a friend and have them record the transaction if the seller has a problem with that it's probably scratchy and you should just walk away

    I bought my Zoom H1 at a pawn shop, paid $30 for it, Works great. The Zoom H1 is my favorite piece of equipment. I use it to record VO, External audio, and like a "pre-amp" with my VidMic Go and DSLR.

Of course my husband and I went to meet the seller, and I definitely don't recommend this as a go to for purchases. I just kept searching for deals when I kept losing out on eBay auctions and couldn't find anything on Amazon in a reasonable budget. 🙂

    I used my EOS M for video. I had to switch because that 30 minute video limit was killing me. Screwed me a few times. I ended up buying a Canon Vixia HF G30 refurb for an additional 25% off from Canon for $450. More than I wanted to spend, but it was technically a bargain and a great video camera with lots of features, long record time, dual SDHC, a remote (!) and other great features. The EOS M and lens I bought new for $250, so it wasn't too bad a loss. It just sits now though as I use my older 20D/40D for pictures which does a better job anyway.

    QOTD answer: My Tip for saving money on cameras is not to let features make a deal breaker. For example don't spend 100 or 300 $ more on the 80D over the 70D only because of the timelapse option just buy the 70D and buy an extra Intervalometer for around 10, 20 bucks that will bring you even better timelapses!

    the lens you used in this video really distorts your head

    I've followed all of Think Media's recommendations on the budget gear and cheap/free ways to promote or add value to your channel. So far he hasn't led me astray.

    Subbed, looking to start a channel soon. So doing my research first for the best way to tackle everything.
    If you have any suggestions on which of your videos I should watch first off for starting off?!

    I've tried to be very disciplined in what I purchase for my channel. Making the best of what you have has been my best bet along with slow upgrades to lights (though this is very DIY at the moment), a microphone, getting a mount to stabilize my phone, and just purchased a full-sized tripod a few days ago. My only regret was purchasing a wide angle lens that I just wasn't happy with how it looked so I don't use it.

    Long story short, think about what you know you'll use every time you make a video and focus on that when making purchases. Use what you have until you can save a bit of money and invest in what you can. It's actually fun for me to see the small improvements over time.
