    I don't think I've ever commented on your website, guys, but wanted to suggest something. You do realize Paul's camera is not your problem, right? It's Paul's adequacy of studio lighting (or lack thereof). When I look at the video feed side-by-side I can see on Paul's face the blue reflected light of his laptop monitor and how his skin tone and color change when he clicks on different windows. Both of these are a dead giveaway. You don't have enough light in your room for the camera to function at its optimal output. You could buy a 5D Mk IV with L glass and still end up with only marginally better result. When you click on a screen and change windows, that reflection should be never apparent on your skin when lighting is adequate. I bet Brad's studio lighting setup is far superior and camera won't be the main reason. I run a simple 920e with zero adjustments and my 1080p picture is even better than Brad's, after putting in good lights.


    A couple decent studio lights positioned slightly above and behind the camera at 45 degrees will do the trick. I'm not talking cheap blinding LED lights from Walmart. I'm talking actual light softboxes with decent area, which won't make you squint, yet provide ample tonality. B&H has some great ones for less than a $100.


    This is easily fixable.

    Love your podcast.

    Hilarious...
