Hoping HTF members with various knowledge of audio and lighting can chime in on different aspects of what I need.... I have been spending the last few days doing product reviews. The YouTube videos that I have put together have been done primarily in my living room or home theater room. Not the most professional way to put our image forward. Got to thinking.... I could actually build a makeshift broadcast station in my basement to record our product reviews. I already have a green screen that could easily be taped/nailed to the wall. I could place backdrops into that area during video editing. I already have a hi-def camcorder with tripod. Here are the things I suspect I will need.... 1. A really good microphone that can be inserted on a boom and then placed outside of frame. Don't mind paying extra for a good, studio quality microphone that can pick up audio from above and provides decent audio. It should have the ability to plug into the camcorder (1/8" connector, I believe) 2. Umbrella lighting. I know very little about it, but I do know I need good lighting and some filtration so that it doesn't come across as very hot. Perhaps there are other things I should be adding that are not occurring to me at the moment. I do all my recording directly to my HD camcorder then transfer it to my Mac via iMovie. From there I do all the editing. I do have access to Final Cut Pro, but I find myself intimidated by it as it looks a bit more complicated to use. I am willing to pay about $500 or less for a decent setup. So, any extra things you want to add to the list of what I'll need would be most appreciated. Would even consider a kit that includes another green screen cloth, stand and lighting (like pictured above) if it's of decent quality. A lot of stuff being sold on Amazon are getting a variety of mixed reviews. I know you get what you pay for. Thanks, in advance, for the assistance.
