FAQs about photography and videography equipment
Regardless of which camera you choose, you will have to spend some time learning how to use it. Whether that time turns out to be a handful of minutes or hours depends on the camera you choose. The more professional a device you choose, the more of a learning curve there will be if you're just starting out in the world of photography and videography.
If you want an easy point-and-shoot camera, you can save time and money and still take beautiful photos and videos. But if you want to take professional-level photos, you may have to do a little studying to get acquainted with your camera's features. However, once you understand the differences between shutter speed, aperture, and ISO, you'll be able to handle pretty much any camera you get your hands on.
You'll need a few items to complete your streaming setup. You'll need a video camera or webcam, a lighting source, a microphone, and a headset. We suggest thoroughly researching the project you're undertaking before you start buying gear for it. That way, you'll better understand where to start and what the total cost might be.
Though editing skills aren't required to jump into photography or videography, they will certainly come in handy if you're thinking about making a product to sell and share with other people. Still, photographers should learn how to use Photoshop or similar editing software. Aspiring videographers might want to invest in Final Cut. Even hobbyists could benefit from taking a class in photo or video editing to learn the ropes.
However, if you simply want to point a camera and capture something you want to remember, you might never need to touch editing software. Ask yourself how much quality you want your photos and videos to have, and go from there.
Deciding on the best camera or accessory for you is ultimately about finding the balance between quality and price. That sounds a lot easier than it is, considering how many options there are out there. If you know you don't need a fancy setup, you can safely veer toward the low end of the cost spectrum. But if you want better quality, take some time to read professional photographer and videographers' reviews of their favorite equipment. You can also build your collection of equipment over time.
Set a budget for yourself and either shop according to it or save until you can buy what you really want. This is a highly personal decision based on what you're looking for in your hobby.
