The picture isn't updated: I have new monitors & rearranged the light arms for cleaner desk.

Disclaimer : I invested a lot of money in my physical setup. Keep in mind that online conferences and video recording, even if fun, are part of my job. I’m also working remotely for the last ten years. I’m privileged enough to be able to afford the tools I wanted to get a high-quality job done.

Every time I share a picture of my evolving setup, I get a myriad of questions about it. I’m a huge fan of saving keystrokes, so this article was long overdue.

    Thank you for posting this. I was needing a good idea for a DSLR cam for recording.
