Hi Gang,

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!!!

Thoughts?

Hi Jen,

I have an older Logitech webcam, C920 with the Carl Ziess Lenses, and I love it.  I always get comments about how clear the image is.  The new C922 is the successor to this one and has some added features.  I know the Microsoft Lifecam Studio is also a good camera, but I have used both and found the Logitech superior.  

Now let's talk microphones. I have not worked with many of the lavalier mics that connect directly to a laptop.  I know it can be done, but you loose a lot of control and you have to content with the wire length.  

To use a good lavalier, you will need to go wireless and have a small mixing board in the system.  There are several small easy to use mixers such as the Mackie 402VLZ.  The lavalier is where you will spend the money.  They start at $150 and go up from there.  Audio-Techneca and Shure are good starting points.

Samson has come out the a Samson XPD1 Lavalier that is USB and designed for vloggers.  I have never used it, but have used Samson products with good results.

If I can offer more help, let me know.

Ed, THANK YOU for taking time to provide this very helpful information!!!
I went award and ordered the c922.

Okay, I really wanted a lab mic, however wasn't thinking about it not being an ideal mic for record with it sounding different when you turn, rubbing on clothes, etc. I like the wireless idea however and will be coming back to your note when I am ready to get on for speaking events. THANK YOU for your offer to help!!!

I ended up going with the Blue Yeti mic that Alan Jackson has recommended a few times. The reviews were good and it was reasonably priced.

Ed, thank you again!!
