Studio on a Desk - Core Unit
Studios ordered today are first tested by hand then ship in 1-2 weeks.
The Core Unit: Bring Your Own Camera and Mic
Note: There are hundreds of camera and microphone combinations that work perfectly with Studio-on-a-Desk. However, our Pilot Program cannot offer support for any 3rd party equipment that you bring into your video recording process.
What's NOT included?
No Camera or Camera Lens Included
- If you want to purchase a recommended camera separately, the Panasonic G85 is a solid option. Make sure to have an appropriate memory card. The kit lens (12-60mm) included in that Amazon link is fine.
- The Studio on a Desk is compatible with hundreds of other cameras. However, during the Pilot Program we will not have step-by-step training or support for any other camera / microphone combination.
No Microphone Included
- If you want to purchase the microphone we recommend separately, the Rode VideoMic Pro is a solid option. Make sure it's compatible with your camera, and you have a 3.5mm cable extender to connect it.
- The Studio on a Desk is compatible with hundreds of other microphones. However, during the Pilot Program we will not have step-by-step training or support for any other camera / microphone combination.
No Computer / Laptop Included
