REMEMBER THE RULE OF 3 WHEN IT COMES TO BATTERIES, MEMORY CARDS AND BULBS
Below is a selection of upgrades for the day when you will want to improve the quality of your output.
A significant upgrade for the basic kit. The Yeti offers four recording patterns which can let you do blogs, vlogs, interviews with up to three people at once and more.
Become future proof with 4K recording and 120FPS in HD for smooth slow motion. Select the "body only" option if you already have lenses. The T7i and the 90D does not use the same battery type but uses the same type of memory cards. My next upgrade.
FIFINE K670 with BOOM KIT
Same mic as in the basic kit but now with an arm, pop filter and shock mount for a mere $20 extra.
ElGATO CAM LINK
Elite adapter needed to turn your DSLR into a webcam. This one is future proof and goes up to 4K.
