In the podcast, I talked about creating a digital wardrobe. My recommended webcam, mic & lights are below:

Recommended Webcams:

Good webcams can enhance your meeting presense.
  • Premium webcam: Elgato Facecam. I have been using Elgato Facecam for the last few months and just love it. It produces crisp, HD quality images & videos with almost no effort. Get it from Amazon.
  • Budget webcam: If you want a good quality webcam that produces decent video and good light capture, try Logitech c920. This was my primary webcam for more than 4 years and never disappointed me. Get it from Amazon.

Recommended Mics:

Recommended Lighting:

  • The best lighting is natural light. So position your seat opposite to a window so that your face is getting natural light at angle. Try using sheer curtains to diffuse the strong direct sunlight.
  • Alternatively get a ring light if you work from a dark room or away from windows. I suggest this one on Amazon.
