Which cameras do you use?
For all outdoor filming, such as our street interviews series (goo.gl/HTlrSL), we use the Sony A5100 Compact System Camera with 16-50mm OSS Lens ( It’s compact and shoots excellent quality videos. Highly recommended!
For our live lessons and videos filmed from home, we both use the Logitech C920 HD Pro USB 1080p Webcam. It’s an excellent, affordable camera which is perfect for High Definition Video Conferencing and even vlogging. Highly recommended!
Which microphone do you use?
We use the Zoom H1 Portable Recorder ( ) which we highly recommend to anyone looking to record videos on the streets or at concerts. We have been astonished by the quality of this microphone when recording street interviews. We’ve had some very windy days of recording and high levels of background noise in the capital, yet the quality of the sound has never been affected. All of the videos in the London Interviews playlist were made using the Zoom H1
Which video editing software do you use?
Harry uses Wondershare Filmora – and Charlie uses iMovie.
