The Best Live Streaming Gear



Logitech C920 Webcam

Record fairly vibrant, HD 1080p video clips. A bit on the technical side, full HD is actually  made possible by H.264, a fairly advanced compression technology. H.264 eliminates time-consuming compression, so that you get fast, smooth uploads with less demand on your computer and H.264 video encoding also works with Final Cut Pro X very well. This camera is only $80!


Canon EOS Rebel T6i DSLR (My choice)

This camera is a bit more on the high end side but it allows video recording in 4K, there is a fairly high quality microphone built in (no peak reduction so I recommend buying an external microphone i.e. one listed below) The processing power on The EOS Rebel T6i camera has a next-generation 24.2 Megapixel CMOS (APS-C) sensor that can capture images of incredible depth and beauty. With high resolution and an ISO sensitivity of ISO 100–12800 (expandable to H: 25600) the EOS Rebel T6i can capture images of immense quality in more lighting situations. Advanced technologies combined with sophisticated automatic exposure features make the EOS Rebel T6i easy to use. Simply turn the camera on and feel confident that the results will be stunning whether they’re being shared on the web or blown up into poster-sized prints. -Canon
