A Chinchilla with a camera. Thanks Firefly!

A few years ago I detailed the hardware and software I use for producing my podcasts and videos. Since then, I have changed a lot, so it seemed a good time to revisit.

My last post mentioned that I had two setups for video and audio production, my “A” setup in my small office-cum-studio and my “B” setup at home. I almost exclusively use the “A” setup these days, and when I do use the “B” setup, it’s almost identical to what I detailed in the older post.

I spend a lot of time on making content, and some of the product links here are affiliate links to cover even some of the time and money I have invested. If you don’t like affiliate links, but would still like to say thanks, subscribe to my YouTube or find other ways to support me.

Video

My video setup has changed quite a bit since the last post. I now have a second-hand Lumix G7 (bought from the awesome mpb.com) connected to an Elgato Cam Link 4k. Getting used to using a “proper” camera and optimising the correct settings for capture has and is still taking me some time. I think the last time I had such a device was a Nikon D90 a long time ago.
