    Hello everyone,

    I am starting a new Youtube Tech review channel (Indoor recording obviously). I am looking to Buy Video gears but I am a beginner and I have never even used DSLR before. Can anyone help me Buy gears as per Beginner. I don’t want to spend money on gears that I can’t even know to use. So far as per research I want to buy following gears. This is my learning stage.

    •Beginner DSLR (That supports external mic, allows connecting android tablet to see live recording in camera see sample here at 02:49)

    •Budget Tripod

    •Softbox kit for lighting (Either a bundle or individual parts I must buy and club them together)

    •Lavalier microphone Refer this video

    •Camera shat shoots above head see unboxing sample here . Here I see there are three cameras. But I am interested in front facing camera and camera above his head. I wanna know what I can use in budget. Also please share the kit or stand that holds the camera above head.

    • Camera Remote

    Basic downline is I want to shoot 1080p Full HD Recording with crystal voice record. Please share the more equipment I need here.

    I am from India so I have a budget of Rs 40000 i.e. $650

    Looking forward to hea from the professionals.

    An entry level DSLR is not really made for video and this type of cameras have no external microphone port.
    If it's mainly for video a good bridge camera could do. In your price range the new
    Panasonic FZ300 is a choice for video. It has an articulated screen, wich is helpfull for filming from different positions.

    LUMIX FZ300 4K 24X F2.8 Long Zoom Digital Camera

    There are better options, but it will cost more.

    Panasonic has a good smartphone/tablet app to
    remotely trigger the camera:
    Panasonic Image App - Android-apps op Google Play
