Sometimes you need to record a video on-the-go or better yet, do a live stream as you walk and talk! Why? Connections!!!
You may be thinking that you can barely do a live stream while sitting but I have a device for you.
A stabilizer is a device that allows you to record while moving but also applying image stabilization to it. You can use your phone, a DSL camera, or an action camera like a Hero action cam.
Most action cameras have stabilization built into the device but when you want to use your phone, that is where a stabilizer comes into play.
At the end of the day, you want to connect with your audience. You want to appear approachable and trustworthy. When you do what you love in your natural environment, authenticity and calm tend to show up. As a result, natural walking and talking can help with believability.

Lavalier or Lav mics come in a variety of flavors. Some connect direct to the camera or computer while...

If you have not used or heard of Loom, then you just missed my joke. The company, Loom, at useloom.com, created a browser-based app that allows you to create records for FREE.
Who doesn't like FREE?
You can record your desktop and/or your camera. In fact, Loom has recently built a desktop version that is in beta right now and not open to the public but you can join the waitlist. It looks promising.
