Mount Your Mic on Your Phone: UURig by Ulanzi for Smartphone
Selfie sticks don’t have phone holders that have a mount where you can put your directional microphones on. That’s why you need to buy this specialized one by Ulanzi. It has a mount on top which you can insert the mic and then you use this on your preferred selfie stick. Click here to shop it on Lazada
Benro Mefoto Selfie Stick
It’s pricey but I honestly feel that this is the best selfie stick you can buy. It will also last you a long time because it’s high quality. All the cheaper ones break down easily so might as well invest in a good one. Click here to shop it on Lazada
You can also opt for handheld gimbals but in my experience that only works if you’re into travel vlogging… which in our current situation with the lockdown is kinda next to impossible.
Affordable Generic Ring Light
