So you’re thinking about starting a YouTube channel? One of the first things you should do is list all the equipment you need to set yourself up for success. Looks aren’t all that matter, but they certainly help! Your new studio doesn’t have to be anything outrageous, but gathering high-quality products to enhance your videos could make all the difference in how quickly your content takes off!

Creating a YouTube studio in your home may seem daunting, but we have pulled together our most loved products to make it a bit easier!


This 1080p camera provides clear streaming and vibrant color. This is the one piece of equipment we would highly recommend for its high-quality video footage, which is extremely important on YouTube.

External microphone 

If the microphone on your computer isn’t the greatest, purchasing an external microphone may be worth the expense. If any of your videos will be screen-shares or animated displays, sound quality should be excellent for your viewers.

Studio Lighting 

If you are going to be featured in most of your videos, great lighting is essential! Having lighting on all sides to reduce shadowing and increase quality is crucial.

Ring Light for Phone 

If you prefer to stream right from your phone, a ring light is an excellent option for better visuals, and it’s very cost-effective!

Camera Remote 

Along with the ring light, purchasing a Bluetooth remote to start and stop video can decrease editing time and can create cleaner transitions between videos. 


A tripod can stabilize video and avoid the “selfie” looking angles, making the video look more professional.

USB drive for extra storage 

Last but not least, creating and storing videos may take up space on your desktop, so having external USB drives is excellent for long-term storage.

While you may not feel totally comfortable starting a YouTube channel, adding the tools recommended above can help create the environment needed to successfully record, edit, and upload quality videos that will benefit your audience.
