Canon EOS 70D Digital SLR Camera with 18-55mm STM Lens
• 4 1/2 out 5 Pyriel Heads [$854.00 – $1,349.00] LINK •
The bottom line is this is a fantastic camera for beginners. This camera is great for a small one-person operation. Users of the Canon EOS 70D can shoot a lot of high-quality material quickly. New or experienced Youtube vloggers would get a solid pic upgrade plus quality of the video on their channel.
Also, be able to take awesome pictures of family and life experiences. A quiet auto-zoom for video and image stabilization built-in. Out of the box, it is intimidating at first with all the controls but set everything to auto and get started recording right away. The instruction manual allows for learning on the fly to make any needed adjustments.
Remember to purchase a 64G SD card [LINK] for video storage.

GEEKOTO Tripod Camera Tripod
• 5 out 5 Pyriel Heads [$149.98 – $189.98 ] LINK •
The Geekoto X25 “Defender” is a bargain-priced compact tripod that offers lots of versatility. Its polished metal components are complemented by attractive red anodized accents. This model is constructed of quality aluminum. While the legs are a little thin, they offer similar stability to larger carbon fiber brands and additional stability can be provided by using the spring-loaded bottom hook. The Defender has a lot of different configurations. One of the legs is removable and can be screwed to the ball head creating a monopod. If you pull up on the center column, an elbow is revealed and becomes a horizontal arm. This can be reattached on the bottom to provide very low angle shots. If the horizontal arm is used at the top of the tripod you should really add a counterweight to prevent tipping (- just necessary for the heavier gear). The tripod’s legs can fold flat on the floor for low angle work or can be folded up in reverse toward the ball head. Ideal for travel, the X25 only weighs 4.39 lbs. and folds down to 18.5″. Extended the tripod tops out at 75″, but there is also a 3-3/4″ column tube extension that will get you up over 78″ -or even 80″ if you skinny up the legs.
• HORIZONTAL: From low angle shots to landscape views. Central column can be rotated 360°horizontally, to meet the demand of different angel and realize panorama shooting.
• 75INCH IN HEIGHT: From 24’’ to 75’’ Flexible Adjustment.4-section column legs with quick release flip-locks allows you to adjust the working height from 24’’ to 75’ in seconds. Winner in height!
• SECURITY and STABILITY: With 25mm width of aluminum alloy tube, loading capacity can reach 22.04lbs, this tripod is strong enough to provide security and stability for your DSLR camera when shooting.
• FLEXIBLE: 360°PANORAMA AND BALL JOINT: The specially designed ball-head can rotate 360° and get free angles, allowing you to get the perfect shot and amazing panorama every time.
• MONOPOD: This tripod can be quickly disassembled with the central axis screw and transform into a monopod or walking stick, providing an alternative way of shooting with ease.
CRAPHY Professional Photo Studio Soft Box Lights
• 4 out 5 Pyriel Heads [$86.95 ] LINK •
This set of two softbox light stands is super portable. The stands come separated and the lightboxes are umbrella-like you have to push the inner ring toward the light bulb screw for the lightbox to lock in its square shape. Once it’s locked this way the thin white light refused that is foldable can be put on the front side of the lightbox. The lightbox goes on the stand and can be positioned vertically or horizontally. If you position it vertically then you can also set the degree you want the lightbox to position (towards the front, up, or down) and lock it so it won’t move. If you set is horizontally also you can move it and lock it to the position you like. The stands are sturdy as well. The cables could have been a bit longer. Overall, this is a super portable set and everything including the bulbs can be fit in the bag that they come with. So if you have to move them around it won’t be a problem. The light bulbs are strong enough to light up a small room for photo/video shoot.
