A couple of weeks ago we were very kindly sent the Studio Creator video maker kit to try out. Now normally we are sent things that either excite me, like books, beauty products or coffee or items that excite the kids like games, toys and chocolate but the studio creator perked the interest of both the boys and I and I have a feeling I am going to have to either share this one or hide it!
What do you get in the Studio Creator Video Maker kit?
The studio creator video maker kit contains
- 1 x Green Screen 1M x 1.5M
- 1 x Tripod with adjustable height up to 50cm
- 1 x mobile holder compatible with IOS and Android
- 1 x LED Ring light with 3 light modes
- 1 x 24-page Guidebook complete with script ideas and backdrop pictures
Which is pretty much everything you need to make your own videos, hence the excitement. The boys are thinking YouTube fame and I’m thinking hands free Instagram stories without my messy office on show. With this kit the possibilities are endless you can film small or long videos hands free using the adjustable tripod and with the 3 lights on the light ring it doesn’t matter what time of day you film or take pictures you can make sure the lighting is just right, which is perfect for me as I am often photographing products in the evenings when the light is rubbish.
Is the studio creator video maker kit easy to use?
We set about unpacking the equipment and with Reece reading me the instructions we managed to set it up in a matter of minutes, it really is very easy to use. The only thing you need to do that takes any time is to download a green screen app on to your phone The studio creator video maker kit does recommend one in the instructions but there are loads to choose from and it may be that you try a few and see which one you like the best.
What is the quality like?
Once we had it all set up and had downloaded a green screen app we set about having a play around with it. We found that the green screen was great for pictures and you can have so much fun changing up the background and pretending you are anywhere in the world.
However when we were making videos we found the green screen was a bit temperamental and every now and then you would get glimpses of the green of the screen coming through your chosen design. Now obviously this isn’t a massive problem if you are using this to make a fun video with your kids but if you intend to use this for a more professional video making situation then you may need to try different apps.
Overall the quality of the equipment is very good, the tripod is sturdy and the green screen itself is thick and doesn’t feel like it could rip easily so I would be happy for the boys to use it unsupervised.
Would you recommend the Studio creator video maker kit?
Overall we found the studio creator video maker kit to be fantastic value for money, easy to use and lots of fun. If you have a TikTok mad child or a gaming lover that plans on breaking into YouTube someday then yes I would recommend it as this would make the perfect gift for them and it’s really reasonably priced at £24.99 on amazon.
