Canon EOS M6 Mark II

There are so many great vlogging cameras out there, but when my husband and I did the research, we landed on this Canon EOS M6 Mark II. It's got all the capabilities needed (including 4K) while being somewhat affordable. We really like the team at ThinkMedia and you can check out their set up video here which tells you all the accessories and settings to use. I also have the accessories linked below!

LUT Video Presets

LUTs are like the presets professionals use to create beautiful photos, only these are for video! They are a set of lighting and color-grading settings that you can automatically apply to your videos in just a few clicks, saving you hours upon hours of time! I bought the Light & Airy VIDEO presets, and you can apply them as LUTS within Final Cut pro!

Final Cut Pro X

Final Cut Pro is one of the primary industry standard film editing programs out there. It's got all the capabilities while still being easy to use!
