Pewdiepie First Video
PewDiePie uploads videos of Kjellberg playing video games while doing commentaries of the experience at the same time. The concept of the videos is the same wherein Kjellberg acts as if he is playing the video game with a friend or in this case, the viewer. The main catch to the videos is his humor behind the commentaries which can even become controversial for being offensive at times. Even though it is mainly designed for teens and young adults, a parental advisory should be left in there somewhere due to Kjellberg’s constant use of profanity and slurs in his commentaries.
After having established a large following at Youtube, PewDiePie has continuously evolved through the years, and this includes their setup in recording the videos. If you have been a long-time subscriber of this channel, then you will clearly notice how the quality of their videos including the effects has improved year after year. This is because the team behind this video channel continuously invests in video cameras, tools and other technology that they need, to provide top quality entertainment out of their videos.

Canon XA30 Professional Camcorder International Version
The Canon XA30 is a part of Canon’s long line of XA camcorders. This model follows the design and contains all the features that its XA predecessors possess but with an improved low-light performance and better HD CMOS Pro image sensor. This modern image sensor has a +3dB boost to its signal-to-boost ratio which makes images clearer. Due to this model’s capabilities and compact size, it can be used for wide range of video or photography objectives. Aside from vlogging which is what PewDiePie is doing, this professional camcorder can be used for live coverage, shooting documentaries and as the primary camera for an independent film.
This camcorder is capable of recording HD videos up to 1080p resolution at frame rates of 24, 30 or 60 fps in either MPEG4 or AVCHD formats.

PewDiePie Microphone 2017
Rode NT1KIT Condenser Microphone Cardioid
This condenser microphone is perfect if you want a full sounding setup. It can provide you high-end features and specifications that only top of the line microphone models can give. It comes with no extras just a direct straight-to-your-face microphone with a golden dot on the front end and an XLR port at the other end. This mic model looks so fragile as it is not that bulky compared to other condenser microphones. The carrying pouch that comes along with it also does not offer any form of safety padding which adds up to its fragility. Simply handle with care since this product is an investment with its quite hefty price tag.
This microphone has an excellent frequency response that could span from 20Hz – 20kHz. It has a very impressive range compared to other condenser mics out there. It also encompasses the full lows and highs of the voice speaking through it. It can absorb the full bass effect without sounding so muddy or having that awfully throbbing sound. It can also deal with all the highs making sure that they do not shrill or shriek on top. Sound quality is indeed the priority for this condenser microphone unit as it has always been for Rode’s products in the past.
Just like any other condenser microphones, it can pick up ambient noises from the background. In fact, it can be more sensitive compared to other high-end condenser microphones out there. However, you are assured that these ambient noises from the background can be filtered out through sound editing and the result will only contain the voice or sounds that you need for its top quality and form. You just have to be more conscious of your environment when recording to make sure that you anticipate least amount of noises that the condenser mic can pick up. With the right setting, audio quality should be at its finest when using the Rode NT1KIT Condenser Microphone Cardioid.
Rode Nt1 Specs
- Frequency Range: 20Hz – 20kHz

Pewdiepie Microphone Stand
Rode PSA1 Swivel Mount Studio with Microphone Boom Arm
Getting a microphone boom arm in doing podcasts and vlogs which are very similar to what PewDiePie is doing for its channel is a must. It enables the speaker to be more relaxed and be poised with a more natural stance. The Rode PSA1 Swivel Mount Studio Microphone Boom Arm is only perfect for this purpose. In case the speaker decides to move in the middle of the recording, he or she can just reposition the microphone with one hand and do this without making any form of noise. You do not have to adjust your position to speak clearly to the microphone since you can easily reposition it for your convenience.
This microphone stand model comes with the features that other high-end mic stands provide but the Rode PSA1 is still very affordable compared to its counterparts given the quality and features that you can get out of it. The price is very low for the quality and features that it can offer. The entire product is also made mostly of metal which means it is very durable since plastic material quickly breaks off after unavoidable wear and tear. The metal component also provides enough resistance and stability so that you can position the microphone the way you want it.
The Rode PSA1’s built-in spring mechanism can help you change the arm’s position quickly. The spring is simply of top quality that you will not worry about it wearing off after some time of using the stand. The two mounting options included in this package are; the conventional clamp mechanism and a desk mount that allows you to hold the mic stable on a desk by drilling a hole on it and clamping the stand along with the microphone on the desk or wall. This product also comes with an adapter that will convert the amount from its natural 3/8 to the more traditional 5/8.
