I've done a lot of Ustreaming for my job, and here's what I use:
- iPhone (with unlimited data plan or reliable WiFi connection)
- Ustream Broadcaster app
- Glif (to hold iPhone to tripod): http://www.studioneat.com/pages/glifoptions
- Any tripod or monopod
If you're looking for something more sturdy, instead of using the Glif, try the OWLE: http://owle-bubo.com/
If you're streaming all day, you'll need to sit by an outlet so you can keep your phone charged.
Mark Russell in Nevada is using a Samsung Galaxy in a dock attached to a broomstick, and it's looking great.
