Published by Zulf Photography on

When live streaming the camera you will need must have certain features.

A. Clean HDMI

B. Auto Focus

C. External power capabilities – for the longer stream (not having to change battery contently)

If you use a camcorder or DSLR you will need to get an adapter to view the HDMI feed from your camera into your computer. The Cam link 4k from Elgato helps here As an Amazon Associate I earn from qualifying purchases.
