Recomendations for Webcams


Sorry if this has been asked before, did a quick search and couldn’t see anything.

What webcams do people use here, looking to upgrade and looking for recomendations.

My gear of cameras 2xLogitech C922. Not too expensive, good quality.

thanks will check it out.

I use the same C92x cams myself.


  • fairly inexpensive
  • very easy to set up
  • easy on the cpu because of hw acceleration
  • good manual adjustments


  • looks like webcam footage (as it is a webcam)
  • looks even worse in low light (although better than other webcams I’ve seen)

I’ve been daydreaming of upgrading to a DSLR video but the problem with DJ streams is always the environment which usually is very dark so the added benefit from even a higher-end DSLR camera + lens would be minimal after the stream has gone through Frankie (the encoder)… Maybe in a few years ehen we all have 10x more bandwith to stream in better bitrates :slight_smile:

I’m running DSLR Canon 5Dmk3 with lens suitable for current setup at the time and epiphan avio capture card, totally totally overkill for dj stream and not a budget solution, but just happened to have this gear from other projects so same to use this.

Next best thing is normal videocamera with clean hdmi-output and a capture device, being in the same price range as gopro’s.
GoPro’s are also pretty decent in low light environments.


I have a C270 for my overhead cam, a C920 for my side cam and a Logitech Brio for my face on. The Brio is excellent but at more than twice the price of the C920 when I bought it I’m not sure it’s worth the extra cost.

I use the Zoom Q2N-4K which is compatible with MAC and PC. It is also a 4K Video camera, has 2 condenser mics in an X-Y pattern, can be used as an audio recorder and a mic. it has an external auxiliary mic inputm, a headset output, a micro USB and micro HDMI output. no additional intefaces or driver software needed. This is a camera specifically designed for entertainers. I am very pleased with it.

How do you combine the different sources?

I have my camera doing only video, I feed audio through focusrite 2i2 or straight from mixer with usb and combine everything in streaming software, either OBS or vMix.
Roland has nowadays pretty nice small hdmi-video mixers that mixes couple HDMI-inputs, combines with audio, but haven’t bear to buy one yet.

I run 2 C920s and a C922 for over the booth. They work great in OBS with a wireless mouse set up in the booth to quickly change between cameras during a set

Do you run these through your pc or separate interface?

I just run the cameras through the pc.

I run all 3 of my cameras straight in to my PC and use OBS to combine and switch between them.
