If you’ve ever watched the HubNut YouTube channel’s videos and been captivated by Ian Seabrook’s enthusiasm you might have wondered what equipment he uses to allow his natural talents to shine – just enough technology for low quality production values not to become irritatingly distracting in the end product but not so much that it takes away from the immediacy of the recording process.
Turns out it’s just a smartphone..the Oppo F1s and more recently the Samsung Galaxy S8. Check out this video where Ian describes it (35 seconds in):
The mount is from VacMounts.com with a cheap eBay mobile phone holder
From the same video the microphone is again a cheap eBay lavalier one with a fur windscreen
If you know what he uses for editing or capturing other footage and ‘B roll’ – maybe you recognise gear like dash cams, gimbals, mounts, tripods and GoPro type devices seen in his many videos – please do leave a comment below, ideally linking to a clip where you’ve seen the equipment.
Looks like a DJI Osmo Mobile 2 3-Axis Handheld Stabilizer Gimbal For iPhone Android Phone used with a Samsung Galaxy S8 (2 circles right of the ear speaker while the S9 has one)
The dash cam footage footer shows it to be a Nextbase Duo HD Dash Cam (Full 1080p Front and Back Dual Lens)
As a journalist Ian seems to have used various still cameras over the years including a Canon S3 IS (compact ‘bridge’ camera with 10x optical zoom) from 2007, Canon Powershot SX10IS (compact bridge with 20x optical zoom and fold-out screen) bought in 2009, a Canon 1000D (DSLR with interchangeable lenses) bought in 2011 and a Panasonic Lumix DMC TZ70 (compact 30x optical zoom, low light – high sensitivity MOS sensor) bought in 2016 which he describes here: https://hubnut.org/2016/03/21/new-camera-time/
I admire Ian’s intellect, honesty and real value for money approach and it looks like that extends to his choice of camera gear – spending money where it matters and makes an appreciable difference to the final experience.
