This is the main camera I use to stream and film the MJS Daily Recap, YouTube videos, and my 2 podcasts. It’s compact, has a flip-out screen, and can film in 4K.

I tried other memory cards in the past, but this one has treated me the best. It’s super fast and has a ton of storage. Plus, I figured a Sony memory card would work best with a Sony camera.

When I first got the Sony SV-1, I bought this memory card. It’s not bad, but I upgraded because this one was having trouble capturing long 4K clips. This is my backup now and is a great deal for the price.

I was searching for extra batteries for the Sony ZV-1 and didn’t want to spend the extra money on official Sony batteries. I took a chance on this 3-pack with charger and they have been great so far.

When I pre-ordered the Sony ZV-1, there was a package deal that included this grip/tripod. This little thing is super useful. I use it every day for the MJS Daily Recap and for both of my podcasts, Fueled By Progress and AM In The PM.

This is the main tripod I use for filming podcasts and YouTube videos. It’s pretty standard, but it does the job and attaches nicely to my camera bag.

Before I purchased the Sony ZV-1, I was using my phone to film, but the audio wasn’t great. This USB-C microphone made it much better.

Before the Sony ZV-1, I used this tripod to film videos using my phone. I love it and still use the phone clamp from time to time.

I bought this because I wanted a cheaper tablet for work I was doing, mainly testing websites. I don’t use it very often, but it gets the job done.

Before I revamped my desk setup, my Samsung tablet was on my desk. I found this simple tablet holder and would highly recommend it if you keep a tablet on your desk.
