Camera - Logitech HD Webcam
Clip this HD Webcam onto your laptop and start recording! This webcam plugs into your laptop using a USB connection and records in 1080p (a high quality shot without exposing more than you'd like to see yourself!). It's the same webcam I use to record my episodes.
(Yes, you can go ahead and use a DSLR camera and record to a HD card. I think the webcam is easier and still records in 1080p).
