Tools for Screen-casting that i use

After all the research so finally i have started to record my Technical tutorials for my YouTube channel.

Below are my Tools used for Screen Recording

Audio: The best advice i received was to invest in some good microphone. and i stumbled upon BLUE microphone .

i also ordered Kadence POP Filter which eliminates unnecessary noise while you record the audio.this costs 590 INR


Audio is recorded on Audacity software which enables audio tuning and pitch correction  capabilities

i got this elegant BLUE Snowball ICE microphone which is easy to plug n play .Cost:4200 INR


Screen Recorder : For now i wanted to get SCreenflow but ended up using Camstudio and Open Broadcast Software . (cost :Free)

As far as video is concerned i got this Logitech Webcam HD c920 from my friend which gives a decent Output .

Costs around 6-8k INR . but i got it for free

Let ,me know if you have used any other tools for producing good decent videos .

Need Suggestion. best Screen Recorder

Folks ,

I’m planning to start my YouTube channel .  I will be recording and sharing my technical videos over there.

I’m looking for best free and open source screen recorder for windows 8 PC .

I have been using VLC and camStudio   and windows movie maker earlier for editing .but  quality isn’t up to mark .

I’m asking help from all you YouTubers out there to suggest the best screen recorder and video editing software you have come across.Also which microphone do you use?. i currently use iBall but again quality sucks .blue yeti/snowball is too expensive for me .
