TypePriceItem (affiliate link)DescriptionAlternatives (Not as good)
Camera - Primary
$548.00
Sony's lowest end 4K video-capable camera. Affordably priced but APS-C means smaller sensor.
Camera Lens - Primary
$248.00
f1.8 gives too much bokeh imo, so set to f2.8 or f4. 50-55mm is the closest to actual human vision which will give a natural appearance.
Light - Key
$199.99
Single, soft light close to the face will give a flattering final look
Capture Card
$129.99
There are many cheap alternatives to the popular Elgato Camlink, Magewell 4K, etc.
Microphone
$129.99
Tried and true, affordable yet very high quality USB microphone avoids having to pay for an XLR audio interface.
Earphones
$49.00
Earphones get out of the way unlike heavy headsets and ensure you can hear how your audio is coming out.
