No facepalms for the Facecam.

Elgato Facecam Pro

More Elgato gear! Why? Because it’s quality, looks nice, and it’s not too pricey. The Facecam Pro is a 4K 60FPS webcam (the world’s first apparently) and it just clips onto your monitor and plugs into your computer. Piece of cake. As a newbie, you kinda just wanna get started making stuff. So they less setup and fuss the better I reckon. Classic webcams are usually pretty ugly, but this one is quite nice!

Specs

  • 4K 60FPS

  • Software-adjustable settings

  • Wide aperture

  • USB-C connector

I guess it kinda looks like a yeti?

Blue Yeti

The Blue Yeti is a classic. It's become the go-to entry-level mic for content creators, streamers, and remote workers alike. It's plug-and-play, no-fuss to set up, and it sounds great. It's got a bunch fo nice controls on the hardware like sound direction and a mute button. The quality is really nice and you don't need a boom arm or to use it. Just plonk it on your desk and move it out the way when you don't need it.

Specs

  • USB connection

  • Different audio modes

  • Mute button

  • Sturdy build

  • Desk stand
