Equipment that I use in my videos:
Blogging camera: I switch between Canon G7X* ( ) and Sony RX100 IV ( ) *I recommend G7X as it’s way cheaper and easier to use.
Big Camera: Canon 6D ( ) Best full-frame camera for price IMO
Lenses: Canon 50mm f/1.2L ( ) and Canon 16-35 f/2.8L ( ) These both are amazing lenses but are expensive. If you are starting out just get a Canon 50mm f/1.8 ( ) it’s only $99

It is a series of notes. These can be extremely, extremely useful if you’ve studied the fields before and you can understand what they actually refer to or extremely useless if you’ve never had contact with that field in the past. Personally, I find this book to be among my top ten but at the same time, I gain a lot of value and benefit from it because I have a strong foundation in the “health / rich / wise” foundation, by reading an average of 52 books per year, for the last three years.

So yes, buy it but have your expectations in check. It is like getting a college level physics book, if your level is adequate, it helps and makes a lot of sense. If you haven’t studied the prerequisite, it will be confusing as hell.
