Well, we finally did it… You know how we feel about asking for donations, so hopefully we’ve put something together that you think is worth contributing to. Let us know if anything isn’t working and/or if something doesn’t make sense!
I want to talk about starting a YouTube channel with zero subscribers. In the video I discuss how we got our first thousand subscribers and how it’s taken off exponentially since then. We’ll take a look at our analytics and see how much money you can make on YouTube, how to get views in the very beginning, and how become suggested more often on the “what to watch” page.
The growth of our channel has been incredible, but it’s neither the fastest nor the slowest I’ve witnessed. I think our results are very repeatable if you’re just starting on YouTube. We would love to go full time, and we have a very loose plan to do that. But even if that never happens, we’ve consider everything so far a huge success.
This is our official 100th YouTube Video! In it we discuss how we got started making videos and a few of our favorites from the past year. We also made a survey to get your feedback on where things should be going in the future.
What is the best camera for making videos or vlogging on Youtube? Both the Sony RX100M3 and the Canon G7X have great video quality, flip out selfie screens, and fit in your pocket.
Although we ended up returning both cameras for unrelated reasons, I think the canon is the best all around fully automatic pocket video camera for YouTube. But there are some limitations, and the Sony RX100iii excels in a few areas.
Which camera did you enjoy watching more? Most of the video was recorded with a Canon 70D, 18-55 kit lense, and a Rode Videomic Pro.
All footage (including the 70D) is not graded, corrected, or altered in any way. Both the G7X and RX100M3 were used with automatic focus and white balance settings.
Which is more important on Youtube, audio or video quality? I think good audio is second only to good content. Here a couple of clips comparing $6500 dollars worth of camera equipment and $6500 dollars worth of audio equipment.
This is the first video in our new series about making better youtube videos. We get asked all the time about our video gear, so we decided it was time put up a few tutorials.

WOW! 1000 YouTube subscribers. Thank you everyone who has subscribed to our channel for all the love and support. To thank you, we came up with a little idea to make you a part of the future of our channel. We cut up 1000 little pieces of paper and spelled out “Thank You 1000.”
As we reach each new milestone, we’re going to save all of the little paper squares and use them to spell out the next message.
We’re also going to do a Q&A video. So if you have any questions for us, now is the time to ask!
