    Guys, I need some help and advice on starting a youtube channel.... I am planning to do automotive and retro gaming content into one channel and not sure how to do the automotive part... I asked SuperspeedRob for tips, and what would you know, he wasn't that helpful at all. The only issue is that I am not sure which type of camera to use, my Galaxy S8+ or get some type of GoPro and DJ Mavick drone....

    I'd stick with the S8 until you've tried the whole YouTube thing for a couple months but that's just me. I think the hardest thing is staying committed and consistent with it. It's easy to say you're going to make videos but it's another thing to actually enjoy it enough to keep doing it. But go for it either way, who knows maybe you'll find it's something you love doing. If you really want to do it and you work at it hard enough you'll be successful eventually :waytogo:

    You could do like vlogs for the car stuff and then game play videos where a little video of you is in the corner and the game is the big screen. Hard part is yeah the commitment and making good content. I watch some gamer and car YouTubers. You just gotta be confident and make funny exciting content. Illiminate is one of the best car channels out there imo and check out gaming with molt. Check those guys out and see how they do it maybe you can pick up some ideas or something. I would stick with the S8 for now cuz you don't want to invest money into a camera and end up quitting later. Start out small if you like it then invest in a camera. Good luck with everything!

    Thanks guys for the input! I really appreciated it! I think Lucky is and will be the main car of the channel, and probably, if I do have enough money, I may end up getting an NSX, in the future (not getting rid of my beautiful 6GA).

    a s8 can make a good camera no joke. for recording game play alot of people swear by using an elgato. for car vids or in car vids just use a suction cup base with phone mount for interior car shots. for exterior id use a knockoff go pro.

    I got a youtube channel myself. its in my sig if you wana take a look. got some 6th gen stuff on there too

    I am using OBS studio for recording gameplay and the PCSX2 and Virtual Boy as my emulators. I am looking at getting a Canon/Sony Camcorder or GoPro on Black Friday (whoever gives a killer deal). I checked out your channel a while ago, and its starting to get there. Just need more content.

    Sorta does help. I might just stick with the GS8+ for the in car vlogs, and then invest in a GoPro for vlogs outside of the car... Later on, I may invest in a DJI Mavik Pro drone for those scenes.

    I know it's a day late and a doll hair to short but if you need any custom video into's or video editing yell my way I have a handful of youtube chann's that i have put alot of care into and don't mind helping out, as far as cameras, Go Pro's and drone footage then slow it down, letterbox it and lay a sick music track down and toss some edits in if you need any pointers on software yell, want help yell, dont feel like you need to spend a forune in camera's to get great video, its all about the research and the editing. :) let me know

    My setup right now is a Canon EOS Rebel T5 (not the T5i varient) and have stock lens that came with it. I haven't bothered to try any modifications on it as it has a freaking 2.5mm headphone jack (who tf uses that size these days). However, I am not sure what to use for the in car vlogs... I need to try out the HU mic that I installed that my phone is connected to, but I can't do video for some reason. Also, what are your thoughts on the Vava dash cam? I heard youtubers are using that for the in-car vlogs.
