Hey loves! I'm often asked about the camera I use to film natural hair tutorials as well as my editing software. I never really understood that question. I'm a huge DIY-er, I'll make pretty much anything work. I thought I'd put together this post to share my tips and tricks as well as details on my camera anyway. I am by no means a professional, but there are tons of tutorials on youtube to help you out with lighting equipment as well as digital camera reviews. I started my channel back in 2006, my uploads were extremely sporadic hence my 15 second camera phone puppy vlogs, my incomplete hair tutorials and my inconsistent uploading schedule. I was just having fun, haha!
Thankfully a few years later; today I am now able to film on a Fujifilm Finepix HS 30 EXR, in 1080p HD quality. Special shoutout to Sarkazz on Youtube. I use this camera for all of my blog photography as well as my hair tutorials. The pop out screen and zoom quality is amazing!
PowerDirector for all of my video editing & special effects!

My vlog camera is a Sony Cybershot 16.1 megapixel; great for capturing moments on the go, without the bulk of a heavy camera.
There you have it! Welcome to my humble "Studio" haha! If you are working on a budget, please don't expense yourself. Work with what you have & upgrade as you progress in your youtube journey.
