Cisco´s Workstation

In this post I share with you my workstation and what gadgets may also be useful for you.

Often, after sharing pics on Instagram of my workstation or after a webinar, some people ask me “Ey, what is that thing you have to+ random object with a function”.

I feel that these questions that I had, mainly during the COVID-19 lockdown, deserved a short article to describe what are the main gadgets I use on the working station and what are their function.

First of all, I would like to share with you a pic of my workstation.

It is not a quite advanced workstation, but rather a functional workplace.

Let´s start describing some items:

iMac 2019 with 27- inch screen

The image I’m currently using is the iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2019) with a 3,6 GHz 8-Core Intel Core i9 processor and a memory of 32 GB 2667 MHz DDR4.

I choose this one after almost ten years with an iMac from 2010 (KIA). I upgraded the processor and memory because I use a lot After Effects, Illustrator, and Final Cut X at the same time.

if you don’t want to see your machine suffering, you should think about improving your iMac to have a seamless workflow with as few crashes as possible.

DSLR Camera- Nikon D610

This camera I use it to do home videos with a 35 mm lens or also to use it to document clinical cases.

Is a full frame camera and has been with me the last 4 years.

Now I´m working on using it as a webcam to improve the quality on webinars and other online initiatives.

iMac/PC Support

I accidentally found it on Instagram and I immediately placed the order (one of the bad things, when you are on lockdown, is start buying a lot of gadgets). It helps me to keep my desktop organized and cables organized.

Sometimes I forget I have so my cables and the workstation looks almost cordless.

USB Mic Blue Yeti

This Mic is in my opinion the best one considering the relationship price/quality. Outstanding performance and now available the new version.

I´ve been using this mic in the past 7 years. Sometimes I use it also for guitar playing and singing (poor mic 😅).

There is a new Yeti Mic Version.

100 mm Macro lens

This lens is the ones I recommend to use for clinical documentation but I also found them very useful for screen recording. Also, if you like macro photography you will enjoy this lens.

Computer elbow and wrist pad

After the lockdown, I realized I need this thing. My wrist was almost in blood after being every day almost 8-10 hours in front of the computer. Cheap and saves you some painful callus.

Also there are some items that are not in the picture but I also find them relevant:

Lightning: 19 inch LED Ring Light with LCD Display Adjustable Color Temperature 3000K-5800K 

This one I bought it to record my online classes and also webinars. It´s amazing how with just a few hundred bucks you can buy good quality lightning kits.

K&F Concept Camera Tripod

I found this new brand. Is affordable and the quality is quite good.

Conclusion

Nowadays you can find a huge offering and variety on internet and once in a while you can receive newsletters with bargains and other promotions.

This is my workstation at the moment, although I have to say that I´m always trying to find new gadgtes that can help me to feel more comfortable when working from home.

If you have any insights or feedback, please drop me an email. I´ll would to love know about your setup.
