Using a DSLR as a Webcam for Zoom Calls

This post mainly exists so when people ask me what my setup is, I can just sent them this link.

My Camera:

My Desk Setup:

  • Grovemade: This is a Portland based company that makes incredible desk products. I have a lot of their stuff on my desk for organization and their aesthetics.
  • Monitor 1: LG UltraFine 4K.  
  • Monitor 2: I have this tiny little Insignia TV that is like 15 inches that I sit below the camera that I put the Zoom calls on so I can make eye contact. My LG monitor is to the right so I can roll a bit over there and not crane my neck down all the time.
  • Book Stand: A basic cookbook stand I use for referencing paper books (I like to read at my desk so I can take notes on my computer as I go).
