First-person videos are undoubtedly the most popular type of videos recorded for the internet, and that doesn’t seem likely to change anytime soon. They don’t require a lot of set-up, filmmaking knowledge, or even other people, making them a great option for anyone looking to get into content creation. But vlogging does require certain equipment to keep your videos looking sharp.

Fortunately, vlogging and any other content that just involves talking directly to the camera doesn’t require the fanciest gear. If this is where your passion lies, you can pretty much just get started with a smartphone and access to the social media platform of your choice—but so can everyone else.

If you want to set your videos apart and make sure they get noticed, stepping it up even just a little bit will help you build and retain an audience that’s already become accustomed to free quality content on the internet—then all you have to worry about is making sure the actual content of your videos is up to snuff.
