Video and capture
Main camera Fujifilm X-T3 with a Samyang 35mm f/1.4 lens, which is connected via a Fuji X Viltrox EF-FX2, as well a capture cards: Gamer 4K – GC573 x2, DeckLink Mini Recorder 4K x2 (with changed cooler for 20mm Noctua).
Second camera (right side) Fujifilm X-S10 with a kit lens 15-45mm for video, as well a capture cards – Elgato Cam Link 4K x3.
Third camera (piano) Sony a5000 with a kit lens 16-50, as well a capture card – BlueAVS HDMI 1080 x3.
Forth camera (cat) Sony a5000 with a kit lens 16-50, as well a capture card – BlueAVS HDMI 1080 x1.
A cheaper alternative is the Logitech C920. In the initial stages it is better to invest in light (lighting) with a good CRI.
Dynamic microphone Rode Procaster for voice recording. Dynamic microphone for singing Shure SM7B.
Acoustic violin mics: small diaphragm condenser Neumann KM 184, ribbon AEA R92.
RME Fireface UCX external sound card.
A cheaper alternative is the Focusrite Scarlett Solo. But only if you are not a musician who deals with streams. In this case, it is better to consider mixers, or something more decent (note, Yamaha will not work, since it has only one bus via USB). If you plan to take an external preamplifier for a dynamic microphone – it is better to consider the PCI sound card.
Golden Age Project Pre-73 mkii – for singing. Tube Preamp ART DIGITAL MPA II 2 – for acoustic violin (with Telefunken 12AX7 ECC83 lamps). Cloudlifter and stock preamps of UCX for voiceover.
There are a lot of cheaper alternatives, a matter of task. If this is for a voice on a quiet dynamic microphone, then you can take Cloudlifter (but for many there is enough 70db of ART TUBE MP STUDIO V3 amplification, if you work with plug-ins) and for example Focusrite Scarlett Solo. If this is the sound of a musical instrument, I would recommend taking MPA and replacing the lamps.
Unfortunately, there are no cheap alternatives. The quality of cheap electric violins leaves much to be desired. But you can try to find something used, at a price that can suit you, this applies to both acoustics and electric violins.

A way cheaper alternative – you can use absolutely any lamp, except for floodlights to illuminate the cottage – they are bad quality. Try to buy lamps that do not flicker and remember, the more lighting, the better the picture quality – on any camera, if you wish to color them after and set correct white balance.
A cheaper alternative is all you can use. I use the cheapest and most practical things in this direction, except for a microphone stand, but it’s just longer.
