today I will be unboxing a webcam that I got. I will also do
a test and comparison to a webcam I bought at 5 Below. I 100% recommend something like this
for YouTube. If you’re a small channel on a budget, you don’t need an expensive webcam
just lighting, the proper setup, etc. Money can be tight when you are a small Youtuber. I’ve talked about how I struggled to afford even cheap options due to being unemployed and the odds weren’t in my favor of job hunting. This is implying you don’t need to spend 100 bucks on a webcam for good quality. You can find something way cheaper and have good quality with proper techniques.
Excluding my headphones, capture card, PS4, and laptops, every other piece of equipment is under 100 bucks. Phonemic, snowball mic, webcam, etc Check out this review I did of a lavalier mic if you’re interested.
You don’t need an expensive webcam. The most important thing is lighting and the setting you are in. You can look up tutorials on how to turn your webcam into a 100 dollar one. I did a comparison of 2 cheap webcams I found. Both had a decent quality I simply wanted one over the other. Unboxing a webcam for under 30 bucks that has food quality looks too good to be true doesn’t it? Well, it’s not. For better results, look into learning color correction with your video editor
Sometimes if I can’t find the precise item I will find something alike. As long as it can record in at least 1080p, you’re good.
You don’t need a 100 dollar webcam to have good videos or a good stream. All you need is good lighting, the right environment.
Here is a stream I did on Twitch with this webcam
Here is another stream that I did with the webcam. With our budget webcam.
You don’t need a webcam to have a Youtube or a Twitch. If you want to have one, this is what I suggest you use. Cheap doesn’t always mean the quality is bad. I want to teach small Youtubers a lesson that you don’t need 100-200 gear for Youtube. This webcam was like 5-10 bucks when I found it. With lighting and a nice LED light set up, it will look like I spend 50 bucks on it
Sometimes it’s best to do a budget even if you have the money because you don’t know if you are going to stick to Youtube or twitch a year from now. Perhaps you don’t want to buy something that’s going to be too complicated
My unboxing and review blog posts will have affiliate links which means that I will get a cut if you buy the product.
Here are some alternative affordable webcams
I want to teach new Youtubers a lesson. That they don’t need 100 dollar webcams, 300 dollar mics to have good quality. All it takes is learning new tricks to Jazz it up a bit.
