many people like to use built in webcam but built in webcam doesn’t record high quality video so forget to use built in webcam if you want to record high quality video , I Recommend to buy new external webcam because external webcam tend to record high quality video  and there is many external webcam on the market but I Recommend buying

Good microphone is one the key to record better video, you can record video in high quality resolution with good background and good content but if you forget to record good sound people are not going to like your video and you are not going to get sales if you are selling something   

so here are the external microphone I recommend
