On this page you'll find a list of all the kit I use, test, review and love:
GoPro Hero 6
The Hero 6 is again another brilliant camera, capable of capturing 4K video footage. I mainly use my GoPro for action sports or to get underwater footage. It can be mounted pretty much anywhere to give you some amazing and unusual shots.

One of the biggest questions I get asked all the time is "What studio mic do you use?". It's the Rode NT-USB. This mic is perfect for podcasters, singers or generally anyone who wants to achieve superb studio quality sound. The mic comes with it’s own handy mini desk stand and plugs directly into your laptop via USB. It can be used with Periscope when using Periscope Producer too.

Olloclip Studio Case (iPhone 6+ / 6S+)
The Studio Case is the only case that I will use with my iPhone. It's simply brilliant. Firstly, it has all round protection, and to it has saved me from a cracked screen some many times (I drop me iPhone a lot). Secondly the functionality it gives you for filming and broadcasting is incredible! So many accessories.

Mounts, Stands, Gimbalsz
Joby Gorillapod 5K
This is the new Gorillapod 5K from Joby. If you've never had or used a Gorillapod before, think of it as a sturdy tripod but with bendable legs... So you can pretty much attach it to anything to get the perfect shot. The 5K model is the biggest, so it's perfect for things like video cameras or DSRLs. I absolutely love mine!
