Facebook Live sales are all the rage right now.  To create truly outstanding lives, you need the right equipment. Lately we’ve been daydreaming about a sweet little set up for this endeavor. As such, we put together the top 3 items for our luxury livestream studio wishlist. Check out our picks and why we love them!

1. Saramonic SmartMixer

Saramonic SmartMixer

Why we love it:

Want professional quality audio? Well, with Saramonic SmartMixer, you got it! While Facebook Live provides very little control for video quality (all videos stream 380p no matter what device you use),  you can have full control of what you sound like.

The Saramonic SmartMixer is a compact and lightweight audio interface with phantom power and amplifier, ideal for professional audio and video production on iOS and Android mobile devices. Since your smart device has a camera perfectly suited for Facebook Live, why not invest in an external camera just for the device in your pocket?

The interface features one mini XLR input for balanced microphones, and two microphone/line inputs for use with the included condenser microphones. It's possible to connect other microphones if desired. A volume control knob and level meter allow easy adjustment of the input level, while a headphone monitor output allows you to monitor the input and playback signal.

It works with both iPhones and Androids, which is perfect if you ever need to switch up your device for any reason. If you have a smart device without a headphone jack, you can invest in a lightning adapter.

Where to find it:

We found the Saramonic SmartMixer for $148.99 on Amazon

2. Emart Photography Backdrop Background Kit

Emart Backdrop Kit will keep you the star of your Facebook live sale

Why we love it:

This kit has it all!

White Wood Floor Backdrop

This super cute white washed wood vinyl backdrop will keep your customer’s eyes focused on you and your products instead of a noisy background. It’s 5x10’ giving you and your team members plenty of room to work with. It’s made of thick and durable vinyl and features a high resolution image. What’s not to love?

Professional lightweight stand and crossbar

This aluminum stand is strong enough to lift your backdrop and light enough for quick set up and take down. Both side supports are held up by tripods, keeping your background stable and steady.

Heavy Duty Spring Clips

Heavy duty photo clamps with strong grip prevent backdrop blunders like having it slip off the bar mid-stream. None of that with these industrial spring clips!

Where to find it:

We found the Emart Photography Backdrop Kit on Amazon for $44.99! This kit is extremely affordable for all that it provides.

3. Neewer 18” Outer Dimmable SMD LED Ring Light & Stand

Why we love it:

Ring lights are a mainstay of professional videographers. That’s because they minimize shadows and provide soft and attractive lighting. The best part? It also serves as a stand and mount for your Mevo camera! It fits tightly to the standard thread screw mount in the center of the light, making sure the light evenly illuminates all around the frame.

Also, you’ll never be sweating. Because it’s an LED light, it won't radiate heat like traditional lights. This one comes with two sets of snap on filters- one for warm lighting and one for cool. The support stand it comes with advanced design and solid locking system that telescopes up to 6.5’, giving you a wide range of height options.

Where to find it:

We found the Neewer 18” Outer Dimmable SMD LED Ring Light & Stand at Amazon for $125.99.
