Digital Camera World Verdict

What do you get for a 20 these days? With the Studio Creator Podcast & Vlogging Kit, quite a lot! Obviously the LED isn't a Lume Cube and the microphone isn't a Røde, but they don't need to be. This is a great all-in-one kit for young YouTubers and TikTokers in training – it's everything you need to turn a phone into a content creation starter setup.

In the Studio Creator Podcast & Vlogging Kit, you pretty much have the best TikTok training wheels for budding content creators who shoot using their phones. 

While seasoned YouTubers, vloggers and TikTokers might demand the best cameras for TikTok, the best ring lights and the best microphones for vlogging, for youngsters and casual creators that is going to be overkill.
