I am super excited about the possibility of doing some online training however want to make this super easy to do to start off.
Is there a web camera and lapel mic that you would recommend to use with my Mac account to record onto Zoom as I want a professional look (higher than my current Mac camera), yet is easy to use and doesn't cost a arm and a leg.
Thanks in advance for your help!!!
Here was a webcam that Zoom support suggested
Hey Jen - I prefer the Logitech 920 camera. Slightly less expensive and works great. The 922 is a nice unit as well.
Mics are a trickier subject. Although I've never owned one personally, there are super cheap USB options, such as this SoulBay. However, if you are sitting or standing at a desk, you may have better results with either an AT2100 or a Blue Yeti. If you are determined to use a lav, a quality route would be something like a Sony EMC-44 with an XLR to USB adapter.
I can tell you from experience cheap mics (sub $25) don't hold up for long. If you experiment with that route, consider buying a spare, so you won't have to halt production when it has issues.
THANK YOU for the info!!! I went ahead and ordered the Blue Yeti and just went with the 922.
