    Nothing specific, just want to make videos and share them for fun and profit. It may be some guitar technique that I share, or something I fix on my car/truck. This weekend I'm hoping to replace the top on my convertible, and I'd like to document that and upload it.

    More important than the Camera are the Lights. You can have a very good looking footage if the Lights are good. If you are serious about making it look nice then I would say to invest on a proper Light Setup, they aren't that expensive and trust me the will make wonders. You wont even believe you are filming with the Phone compared to what you have now.

    Of course having a dedicated Cam is better, a DSLR and a Fast aperture Lens (1.8) will give you much better picture quality and footage that you can later on work more at ease on any Editing program.

    I do this too, record live on my camera (I have a Nikon DSLR) and have my amp mic'd up tracking in Reaper, and then merge the audio and video in a video editing program (currently I'm on a Mac using Final Cut Pro which is probably way more than I need, but in the past I used Windows Movie Maker on a PC, which is free).

    EDIT - and aw yeah, shred! Wheeeee!!!!!!

    EDIT #2 - and, the video quality is actually not all that bad. Some better direct lighting might help with the graininess better than a better camera would. I'd rather hear this with better audio than anything.

    If Ola's path to success has taught us anything, it's that better audio production is always better than better video production, though I suspect the two go hand-in-hand once the final product gets chewed on by Youtube

    I have a Sony DSLR. It's not a super high-end one. Maybe $400 or so? Don't know the exact model but it's decent enough. Has a flip screen so I can see myself, etc. For audio, of course it's Reaper. For video I use Filmora. I wanted something simple. Similar to Windows movie maker for ease of use but has some better editing and export options. I do have Adobe After Effects but you need like a double PHD to figure it out.
