Welcome to the site. I'll be glad to assist you further.

What sort of budget do you have available?
I can recommend a lot of nice gear, but there's no point in doing so if it's outside the affordable range for you.

And I assume this means you want to record it, edit it, and then upload it after the fact, right?
Not live streaming, where it's online the moment it's recorded. Please confirm.

Thanks.

No problem, I can pay for what I need and MUST pay for it.

Any cameras would work for mere interviews.

Having a tripod and good audio is more important. Get mics for audio. Any type is fine, and the best quality that can be afforded.

In 2012, choices were fewer and more expensive.
In 2018, DSLRs are a favorite of most.


This was an unanswered question or unresolved issue found during a site audit. It's hard to have an FAQ when the answers are missing, or final outcomes are unknown. At The Digital FAQ support forum, questions are never intentionally ignored, and may have been missed due to a forum glitch or human error. More details on the audit. (In some cases, threads have been edited/updated with newer information.)
