About Roman Atwood:
Roman Atwood is a 35-year-old vlogger from the small town of Millersport, Ohio.
As a teenager, he worked in his family’s rope-making factory where he learned the value of persistence and hard work.
He also discovered his inherent knack for comedy and making people laugh.
In 2009, Atwood decided to create his own YouTube channel to showcase some of his pranks.
In these early days of the internet, it was easy for him to rise to fame with his outlandish videos that raised eyebrows around the globe.
Chances are you’ve already seen his most famous prank videos several times before.
In his Plastic Ball Prank, he fills his family home with thousands of small plastic balls, effectively turning it into a giant ball pit.
In his Killing My Kid prank, he pretends to let his son (replaced by a mannequin) die in a violent 4-wheeler crash in front of his wife.
The extreme nature of his pranks combined with his personal easy-to-relate-to-life vlogs has drawn in almost 6 billion views and over 25 million subscribers.
When you have the resources that Roman Atwood has as a vlogger, then you’re going to have plenty of toys from high-end film cameras to advanced drones.
However, these are some of Roman Atwood’s most-seen cameras that he uses to do the majority of his personal vlogging and prank videos.
He has a high-quality DSLR for movie-style shots, a 5D SLR camera, and even a small pocket-sized Canon designed to give him a great amount of versatility wherever (or whatever) he happens to be shooting.
