My home office AV setup


I recently recorded a talk for work, and was asked about my AV setup. The camera and lense choice is directly inspired by Ben Gilbert and David Rosenthal’s setup for their excellent podcast, Acquired. I figure since I work full time remote from home, I want to be seen and heard clearly. Also, the a7c is a fantastic full-frame compact travel camera.
