Felix Kjellberg aka ‘PewDiePie’ is a Swedish YouTuber and gamer based in the UK. PewDiePie was born in Gothenburg, Sweden where he pursued a degree in industrial economics and technology management but dropped out to pursue a full-time YouTube career just a year after he created his YouTube account. His parents disagreed with his decision and did not support him financially so PewDiePie started working at a hot dog stand to fund his videos. In 2012, only one year after dropping out, PewDiePie reached 1 million subscribers on YouTube.
On 15 August 2013 PewDiePie’s channel became the most subscribed channel on YouTube for the first time. After being briefly surpassed by YouTube’s Spotlight channel he reclaimed the position on 22 december 2013. PewDiePie has held that position ever since and also became the most viewed channel of all time in July 2014.

To record gameplay PewDiePie uses Open Broadcasting Software (OBS). This software is free and open source which can be used for recording video and live streaming on Windows, Mac or Linux. OBS also allows you to record your screen and your webcam at the same time.
PewDiePie currently uses Adobe Premiere Pro CC to edit his videos. Adobe’s creative cloud software is available on a subscription model so it no longer requires a big upfront investment to purchase the software. You can download Adobe Premiere here.
What camera PewDiePie uses depends on the type of video he is creating. He usually switches between two different cameras:
For recording his vlogs he uses a lightweight camera that is easy to use and carry around, the Canon PowerShot G7 X.View Price on Amazon
If he wants to record in really high quality and can get someone else to film he prefers to use the Canon XA10. He uses this camera mainly for his comedy skits.View Price on Amazon
For recording himself while creating gaming videos PewDiePie uses the Logitech Pro 9000. This webcam records in crystal clear HD, has very smooth autofocus and also automatically adjusts the brightness for the best performance in every light.View Price on Amazon
The main source of light PewDiePie uses is the Neewer Camera Ring Light.View Price on Amazon
The direct light of the Neewer ring is very harsh and will reflect on all darker and reflective materials. To prevent this PewDiePie uses a softbox diffuser by Neewer which is collapsable so is very easy to store when not in use.View Price on Amazon
